Corn Whiskey Blues

This song is by Funny Papa Smith and appears on the compilation album The Original Howling Wolf, 1930-1931 (1972).

Ah, bring me that bottle and let's have another drink of boo'
Ah, bring me that bottle and let's have another drink of boo'
'Cause I can feel something comin' and it seem something like the blues

I can tell when the blues is comin', I can't help but feel so low down
I can tell when I got the blues is comin', I can't help but feel so low down
Then I wants to get drunk and pitch a booger all over town

When I start drinkin' I'm mean and hateful and won't treat nobody right
When I start drinkin' I'm mean and hateful and I won't treat nobody right
I just keeps on walkin', lookin' for places where they fuss and fight

I'm gonna keep on drinkin' till I find me a good corn friend
I'm gonna keep on drinkin' until I find me a good corn friend
And when I can't find good corn, I'll drink moonshine again

I've got a girl in Texas, she lives four miles from town
I've got a girl in Texas, she lives four miles from town
And on account of moonshine her people don't 'low me 'round
