Dirt Dauber Blues

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation Too Late, Too Late: Volume 3 (1927-1960's) (1994).

Everybody worrying me, want to know why I'm so crazy about dirt dauber tea
Everybody worrying me, want to know why I'm so crazy about dirt dauber tea
Because when I was young, they built their nest on me

Now everybody tells me I need a doctor, I need someone to stay here with me
But I don't need nothing but that dirt dauber tea
Because when I was young, they built their nest on me

And out of all that I crave, all that I seen
I don't want nothing but that dirt dauber tea
Because when I was young, they built their nest on me

When I was down sick in my bed, blind, couldn't hardly see
That dirt dauber flew down in my bed and built his nest on me
That's why I say, "I'm crazy about that dirt dauber tea"

Ahw, dirt dauber's a builder
Ahw, dirt dauber's a builder
Dirt dauber is a builder, he built his nest on me
That why I say, "I'm crazy about the dirt dauber tea"
