​Down Home Girl

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the album In My Girlish Days (1994) and on the compilation album Early Rhythm & Blues 1949 (2002).

Well, I'm a down home girl
And I'm tired of fooling with you
Well, I'm a down home girl
And I'm tired of fooling with you
That's why I'm gonna leave you baby
'Cause I've got those down home blues

When I go to Memphis, I'm gonna walk down Beale and Third
When I go to Memphis, I'm gonna walk down Beale and Third
So me and my old time friends
Can set down and swap a few words

Well, when I leave Chicago
I'm gonna buy my ticket straight on through
Well, when I leave Chicago
I'm gonna buy my ticket straight on through
And say: Hurry engineer, 'cause I've got those down home blues

Well, I go back home, I believe my luck will change
Well, I go back home, I believe my luck will change
Then I will find me a man
Wheee-hoo that really knows the game

Recorded:

1949
