"Boweavil Blues" as written by Lovie Austin and Ma Rainey....
Hey boweavil, don't bring them blues no more
Hey boweavil, don't bring them blues no more
Boweavil's here, boweavil's everywhere you go

I'm a lone boweavil, been out a great long time
I'm a lone boweavil, been out a great long time
For to sing this song
To ease boweavil's troublin' mind

I don't want no sugar put into my tea
I don't want no sugar put into my tea
The mens are so evil
I'm scared they might poison me

I went downtown
I bought myself a hat
I brought it back home
I laid it on the shelf

I looked in my bedroom
Tired sleepin' by myself
I'm tired sleepin' by myself
