"Black Snake Moan" as written by and Blind Lemon Jefferson....
Well, well ain't got no momma now
Yeah ~ ain't got no momma now.
She told me late last night
You don't need no momma no~how.

Set here wonderin' would a matchbox hold my
clothes
Yeah ~ matchbox hold my clothes
I ain't got so many matches
But Lord I got so doggone far to go.

I got a great long snake crawlin' around my room.
Yeah ~ crawlin' around my room.
Handsome pretty momma better come down
here
Take that long snake soon.

That must been a bedbug, I know a chinch
can't bit that hard.
Yeah ~ chinch can't bit that hard.
Asked my woman for fifty cents.
She said Jimmie I ain't got a dime in the yard.

Well, well ain't got no momma now
Yeah ~ ain't got no momma now.
She told me late last night
You don't need no momma no~how.
