Hole In The Wall

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Pickin' the Blues (2000) and on the compilation album Queen Of Country Blues (2005).

There is something wonderful, we can't understand
A rat come in here, cutting like a natural man
He got a hole in the wall
He got a hole in the wall
And when he get to cutting, you might have heard the poor girl squall

Boys, that rat is a cutter, you ought to understand
He's cutting somebody, everywhere he lands

He got a hole in the wall
He got a hole in the wall
And when he get to cutting, you might have heard the poor girl squall

I was over to old man Jones', the other day
He had cut his wife, and 'bout to do his baby, the same old way
He got a hole in the wall
He got a hole in the wall
And when he get to cutting, you might have heard the poor girl squall

The cat jumped at him, and he got away
Boys, if you don't watch that rat, he's gonna steal all your meat away

He got a hole in the wall
He got a hole in the wall
And when he get to cutting, you might have heard the poor girl squall

I saw old man Collins, might have heard him crying
Boys, the way that woman cut him, he's about to lose his mind

He got a hole in the wall
He got a hole in the wall
And when he get to cutting, you might have heard the poor girl squall
