​Black Spider Blues

This song is by Sylvester Weaver and appears on the album Sylvester Weaver Vol. 2 (1927) (1992).

Saw a big black spider, creepin' up my bedroom wall
I saw a black spider, creepin' up my bedroom wall
Finds out he was only goin' to get his ashes hauled

Say, if that black spider bit you, it would be "Too bad, Jim"
Say, if that black spider bit you, it would be "Too bad, Jim"
Give your heart to the devil and your hips would belong to him

I'm gonna get a black spider, put him in the bottom of your shoe, my Lord
I'm gonna get a black spider, put him in the bottom of your shoe
That's the only way I can get rid of a jade like you

A rattlesnake is dangerous, a black spider is worser still
A rattlesnake is dangerous and a black spider's worser still
A razor gun, a pistol, will kill you like a black spider will

I been workin' like a work ox, on Saturday night you got my pay
I been workin' like a work ox, on Saturday night you got my pay
While you're in the black bottom dance hall, black bottomin' your time away

Black spider, black horses, black horses with the curtains down
Black spiders, black horses, black wagon with the curtains down
Black gal, you and your black bottom be six feet in the ground
