"Poor Black Mattie" as written by and Robert Burnside....
Poor Black Mattie ain't got a change in clothes, girl got drunk, close that door
Poor Black Mattie, ain't got change o' clothes, girl got drunk, throwed her clothes outdoors
Poor Black Mattie…
Goin' to Memphis, see the World's Fair, reason I'm goin', baby there
Goin' to Memphis, see the World's Fair, reason I'm goin', know my baby there
Need no heater fireplace by my bed, women I got cherry red
Need no heater fireplace by my bed, woman I got keeps me cherry red
