Down In The Alley

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Hoodoo Lady (1933-1937) (1991).

I met a man, asked me did I want to pally
Yes, baby, let's go down in the alley
Take me down in the alley
Take me down in the alley
Take me down in the alley
I can get any business fixed all right

I met another man, asked me for a dollar
Might have heard that mother fuyer holler
Let's go down in the alley
Let's go down in the alley
Let's go down in the alley
You can get your business fixed all right

(spoken: Let's go)

When he got me in the alley, he called me a name
What I put on him was a crying shame
Down in this alley
Down in this alley
Down in this alley
Where I got my business fixed all right

You got me in the alley, but don't get rough
I ain't gonna put up with that doggone stuff
Way down in the alley
Way down in the alley
Way down in the alley
Lord, my business fixed all right

(spoken:
Woo, it's dark
Can't see no light
Got to feel my way out this alley
I'm gonna stop, boys, walking late at night)

You took me in the alley, you knocked me down
Now I'm gonna call every copper in this town
You got me down in the alley
You got me down in the alley
You got me down in the alley
Now you got your business fixed all right

(spoken: Boys, I'm sure gonna stop walking,
Walking late at night)
