Pork Chop Blues

This song is by Sam Collins and appears on the album Sam Collins (1927-1931) (1991).

I went out west just about a year ago
I've taken sick and I'm like to die
Had the rheumatism all in my breast
It's caused bruises all in my side

I went to the doctor, doctor said
"Boy, what's the matter with you?"
That doctor looked around at me
I said, "Oh, doctor, what I need?"

That doctor shook his head and said
"You need the pork chop poultice and the stew and beans
To your stomach three times a day
If you hadda been doin' it all the time
You'd have been a healthy child today

When a man gets sick and about to die
Pop in my swell cafe and eat his chocolate pie
You need a pork chop poultice, stew and beans
To your stomach three times a day"

Lord, some folks say that a preacher won't steal
And I caught two in my cornfield
One had a bushel and the other one had a peck
They both had croaker sacks around their neck
Pork chop poultice and the stew and beans
To your stomack three times a day

"Needs a pork chop poultice and the stew and beans
To your stomach three times a day
If you hadda been doin' it all the time
You'd have been a healthy child today

When a man gets sick and is about to die
Pop in the swell cafe and get his chocolate pie
You need some pork chop poultice, stew and beans
To your stomach three times a day"

Do you know last winter when the time was tough
Pork and beans in the kitchen was a-struttin' they stuff
Pork chop poultice and the stew and beans
To your stomach three times a day
