​Tom Cat Blues

This song is by Freddie Spruell and appears on the compilation Mississippi Blues: Vol. 2 (1926-1935) (1994).

It was late last night, I tried so hard to sleep
It was late last night, I tried so hard to sleep
When a mean old tomcat started on his midnight creep

Tomcat's in my window, tomcat's all around my door
Tomcat's in my window, tomcat's all around my door
I never heard so much moanin' and whinin' in my life before

I don't trust a tomcat, he's got such an evil eye
I don't trust a tomcat, got such an evil eye
He's sneakin' and mistreatin', dirty and that ain't no lie

A tomcat man is tryin' to break up my home
A tomcat man is tryin' to break up my home
That's why it makes me mad when I hear a tomcat moan

Ow, Mr. Tomcat, get somebody of your own
Ow, Mr. Tomcat, get somebody of your own
For you will lose your nine lives if you don't leave my babe alone

Recorded:

1928
