Howling Wolf Blues No. 4

This song is by J.T. "Funny Paper" Smith.

Spoken: Well, it looks like the last of the old Howlin' Wolf

My feet are almost frozen from prowlin' on the frozen ground
My feet are almost frozen from prowlin' on the frozen ground
And the she-wolfs got so they don't want me no more 'cause I done prowled my fool self down

When I first started howlin' all the women fell for my line
When I first started howlin' all the women fell for my line
Now they got so they keep me prowlin', hide from me all the time

When I get hungry I prowl and prowl and don't stay in no one place long
When I get hungry I prowl and prowl and don't stay in no one place long
When I get lonesome I howl and howl all around my she-wolf's home

They used ta call Wolf in to howl, but they get so now they close their doors
They used ta call Wolf in to howl, but they get so now they close their doors
They found out I don't do nothin' but prowl and they don't want me in no more

When you hear a strange voice you know it don't mean no one no harm
When you hear a strange voice you know it don't mean no one no harm
Why I've keep on howlin' 'cause I've been prowlin' so long

Now listen Can't you hear somebody callin' their hounds out with their horn
Now listen Can't you hear somebody callin' their hounds out with their horn
Let me get up and get prowlin' 'cause they get on my trail 'fore long
