Drinkin' Woman Blues

This song is by Roosevelt Sykes and appears on the compilation album Roosevelt Sykes Vol. 2 (1930-1931) (1992).

When you got a woman friendly, and she don't understand
When you've got a woman friendly, and you see that she don't understand
She'll take two, three drinks of whiskey, and she will fall for any man

She will drink her whiskey, she will dance all night long, too
She will drink at her whiskey, she will dance all night long, too
She will take a car ride with your buddy just as quick as she would with you

Lord, when he brings her back, partner, she will dance right on
Lord, when he brings her back, partner, she will dance right on
And the first man offer another drink of whiskey, that's the first man who can take her home

Oh, and a workin' man, workin' man don't need that kind of a gal
Oh, and a workin' man, a workin' man don't need that kind of a gal
She comes in all hours of night, smellin' just like a whiskey barrel

She needs a hustlin' man who ain't got nothin' to do
Oh, she needs a hustlin' man who ain't got nothin' to do
When she comes in drunk, partner, he will come in drunk, too

Recorded:

November 3, 1930; Chicago, IL
