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

I went to New Orleans, Louisiana, just on account of something I heard
I went to New Orleans, Louisiana, just on account of something I heard
The Seven Sisters told me everything I wanted to know, and they wouldn't let me speak a word

Now, it's Sarah, Minnie, Bertha, Holly, Dolly, Betty and Jane
Now, it's Sarah, Minnie, Bertha, Holly, Dolly, Betty and Jane
You can't know them Sisters apart, because they all looks just the same

The Seven Sisters sent me away happy, 'round the corner I met another little girl
The Seven Sisters sent me away happy, 'round the corner I met another little girl
She looked at me and smiled, and said, "Go, Devil, and destroy the world"
Spoken: I'm gonna destroy it, too. I'm all right now

Seven times a year the Seven Sisters will visit me all in my sleep
Seven times a year the Seven Sisters will visit me all in my sleep
And they said I won't have no trouble, and said I'll live twelve days in a week

Wanna go down in Louisiana, and get the hell right out of your bein'
Wanna go down in Louisiana, and get the hell right out of your bein'
These Seven Sisters can do anything in Louisiana, but you'll have to go to New Orleans
