Pot Hound Blues Lyrics

Pot Hound Blues - Lucille Bogan/Slam Stewart

You must bring me a job

 

Or money from anywhere

 

You must bring me a job

Or money from anywhere

 

Cause I can get your kind

Of lovin' in the

Street just anywhere

 

You come home every day lookin'

For your stew and beans

 

You come home every day lookin'

For your stew and beans

 

And you have got more

Nerve than any pot hound

 

I've ever seen

 

Now you take your money

You have your fun

 

You don't have nothin'

When house rent come

And I'm thou cookin'

Your stew and beans

 

And you can eat more

Neckbones that any man

I've ever seen

 

Now if you want me baby

You got to make

Your purse show down

 

If you want me baby

Make your purse show down

 

And you got to put your

Money down where

I got mine

 

Now you're layin' up in my bed

Between my two white sheets

I can't see and smell nothin'

But your doggone feet

 

And I'm thou tryin'

To make a man of you

 

And if you can't bring a job

 

Don't you look for

Your daily stew

 

I worked hard from Monday

Until late Saturday night

And you're a dirty mistreater

You ain't treatin' me right

And I'm thou cookin' your

Stew and beans

 

And you's a dirty pot hound

 

Dirty as any man I've seen
