Call The Fire Wagon

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Complete Recorded Works In Chronological Order 1935-1941, Volume 4 (1991) and on the compilation album Queen of the Blues (1997).

I was talking to the people that lives in town
Y'ever had the shack and your clothes burn down?
So call the fire wagon, call the fire wagon
Call the fire wagon, ain't no fire wagon in town

Saved my baby and my wardrobe trunk
I lost everything else I had in front
So call the fire wagon, call the fire wagon
Call the fire wagon, ain't no fire wagon in town

Standing on the streets in my sleeping gown
Watching that shack and my clothes burn down
So call the fire wagon, call the fire wagon
Call the fire wagon, ain't no fire wagon in town

Fast asleep laying in my bed
Lord, this smoke is 'bout to kill me dead
So call the fire wagon, call the fire wagon
Call the fire wagon, ain't no fire wagon in town

This big city's all right but I'm so far from town
A shack catches fire, you know it's got to burn down
So call the fire wagon, call the fire wagon
Call the fire wagon, ain't no fire wagon in town

Well, the jinx overtaken us, now and carrying us down
Me and my baby got to leave this town
So call the fire wagon, call the fire wagon
Call the fire wagon, ain't no fire wagon in town
