BOWEEVIL BLUES Ma Rainey / Lovie Austin 1923 as rec by Bessie Smith Apr 7th 1924 New York also rec by Ma Rainey w Lovie Austin's Blue Serenaders '23 Hey boweevil, don't bring them blues no more, Hey boweevil, don't bring them blues no more, Boweevils here, boweevils everywhere you go! I'm alone boweevil, been out of grain long time, I'm alone boweevil, been out of grain long time, Gonna sing this song to ease boweevil's troubled mind! I don't want no sugar put into my tea, I don't want no sugar put into my tea, Some men are so evil, I'm scared they might poison me! I went down town, 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!
