Seven Sisters Blues Part 1

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

They tell me Seven Sisters in New Orleans, that can really fix a man up right
They tell me Seven Sisters in New Orleans, that can really fix a man up right
And I'm headed for New Orleans, Louisiana, I'm travelin' both day and night

I hear them say the oldest Sister look just like she's 21
I hear them say the oldest Sister look just like she's 21
And said she can look right in your eyes and tell you just exactly what you want done

They tell me they've been hung, been bled, and been crucified
They tell me they've been hung, been bled, and been crucified
But I just want enough help to stand on the water and rule the tide

It's bound to be Seven Sisters, 'cause I've heard it by everybody else
It's bound to be Seven Sisters, 'cause I've heard it by everybody else
Course, I'd love to take their word, but I'd rather go and see for myself

When I leave the Seven Sisters, I'll pile stones all around
When I leave the Seven Sisters, I'll pile stones all around
And go to my baby and tell her, "There's another Seven Sister man in town"

Good morning, Seven Sisters, just thought I'd come down and see
Good morning, Seven Sisters, just thought I'd come down and see
Will you build me up where I'm torn down, and make me strong where I'm weak?
