​No Good Woman Blues

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

I don't want no woman partner, that wants every man in town
I don't want no woman partner, that wants every man in town
Know she ain't no good, she will tear your reputation down

I went to my woman's house, just to sit down and talk awhile
I went to my woman's house, just to sit down and talk awhile
Her husband come in with his shotgun, and he run me for a solid mile

When I got home partner, I didn't have time to fasten my back gate
When I got home, I didn't have time to lock my back gate
I thought he was still behind me, and I didn't hesitate

I won't try no mule, that don't know gee from haw
I won't try no mule, that don't know gee from haw
I don't want no woman, she just soon as say yes as to say no

Turn your light out mama, and pull you curtains down
Turn your light out mama, I want you to pull you curtains down
I'm going to fill you car with gasoline, and meet you going downtown
