DOWN IN THE ALLEY as recorded by Memphis Minnie 1937 I met a man, asked me did I wanna pally? Yes baby, let's go down in the alley. Take me down in the alley, Take me down in the alley, Take me down the alley, Then I get my business fixed alright! Well I met another man, asked me for a dollar, Might have heard that motherfuyer holler! Let's go down in the alley, Let's go down in the alley, Take me down the alley, I get my business fixed alright! (spoken: Let's go!) When he got me in the alley, called me a name; What I put on him was a cryin' shame! Down in this alley, Down in this alley, Down in this alley, Where I got my business fixed alright! You got me in the alley, don't get rough, I ain't gonna put up with that doggone stuff! Way down in this alley, Down in this alley, Got me down in the alley, Lord, my business fixed alright! (spoken: Oh it's so dark! Can't see no light! Gotta feel my way, out of that! I sure would stop workin' nights!) You took me in the alley, you knocked me down, Now I'll call every cop in this town! You got me down in the alley, Way down in the alley, You got me down in the alley, Now you got your business fixed alright! (spoken: Boys, I sure gonna stop workin' and walkin' late at night! Sure thing, surprisin' the way you got goin' on at it!) (Transcribed by Peter Akers - March 2016)
