This song is by Willie Baker and appears on the split compilation album Charley Lincoln & Willie Baker (1927-1930) (1992) by Charley Lincoln and Willie Baker.

I wonder will a matchbox hold my dirty clothes?
I wonder will a matchbox hold my dirty clothes?
I haven't got so many, but I got so far to go

Women all sing the blues, I ain't raised my right hand
Women all singin' the blues, I ain't raised my right hand
What make a woman have the blues, when she know somebody's got her man

The blues is somethin', woman, I ain't never had
Well, the blues is somethin', woman, I ain't never had
Just get yourself some good man and do the best you can

A weak-minded woman will let a rounder tear her down
A weak-minded woman will let a rounder tear her down
And when she get in trouble, that rounder can't be found

She got up last night, she crawled around my bed
She got up last night, she crawled around my bed
"Gonna love you a long time, daddy, I guess I will see you dead"

Woman take the blues, she gonna buy her a paper and read
Woman take the blues, she gonna buy her a paper and read
Man get the blues, he's gonna catch a train and leave

My gal got a mouth like a lighthouse on the sea
My gal got a mouth like a lighthouse on the sea
Every time she smiles, she throws that light on me

Recorded:

1929
