​Socket Blues

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

Down in my old home town, put the irons on the stove
But I'm got to have a socket everywhere I go
I need a socket, ooh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

I got the clothes on the bed, all sprinkled down
I can't find no socket around, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

Well, the last socket I had, you throwed it out of doors
How in the world you expect for me to iron your clothes
I need a socket, ooh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

Well, the reason I love my baby and love him so
He carry me a socket everywhere he go
I need a socket, ooh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes

I got an electric iron, I got plenty of steam
But a socket, now, is all in the world I need
I need a socket, ooh, I need a socket
Babe, I've got to have a socket, if you want me to iron your clothes
