Killer Diller Blues

This song is by Memphis Minnie and appears on the compilation album Queen of the Blues (1997).

These are the lyrics as I transcribed them from the record
Whether they're perfect or not, I don't know
I may have transposed some of them here and there
You're welcome to check it and correct it yourself
Take it or leave it:

Well, the ugliest li'l thing you ever see before...
He didn't be a tramp, he's a hobo
He's a ugly li'l somethin' on the scout
He's a terrible li'l creature hush yo' mouth
He's a awful li'l thing, he's a killer diller from the south

Well, he walked into the store where I was at
And in his face looked like a cryin cat
'Cause he's a ugly li'l sucker on the scout
He's a terrible li'l creature hush yo' mouth
He's a awful li'l thing, he's a killer diller from the south

Well, he walked down the street lookin' in a showcase
His stacker walked out, said you can take my place
'Cause he's a ugly li'l shaver on the scout
He's a terrible li'l somethin' hush yo' mouth
He's a awful li'l creature, he's a killer diller from the south

Well, he walked in the hotel, ever'body left
He looked in the glass and he smiled at his self
I'm a ugly li'l shaver on the scout
I'm a terrible li'l somethin' hush yo' mouth
I'm a awful li'l creature, I'm a killer diller from the south
