​Chittlin Rag Blues

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

Had a chittlin' supper, last Saturday night
I had a chittlin' supper at home last Saturday night
Some house rent party, it was a low-down sight

Old sister pulled hips and brother shaked them off
Old sister pulled hips and old brother shaked them off
Was belly-rubbin' 'til the dewdrops start to fall

It cost a quarter to enter at the door
It cost a quarter to enter at the door
Before you got out it cost about ten times more

They served you whiskey, strong as nitroglycerine
They served you whiskey just as strong as nitroglycerine
And when you drink it, made you feel so doggone mean

Old Ragtime Booker played the piano so mean and blue, Lord, Lord
Old Ragtime Booker played the piano so mean and blue
Everybody was shakin' tryin' to break their backs in two

Blew the police whistle, it sound like a wild cat's wail
Blew the police whistle, sound like a wild cat's wail
Coppers brought the wagon and took the stranglers all to jail
