EAVESDROPPER'S BLUES J C Johnson Bessie Smith w Don Redman (clarinet) & Fletcher Henderson (piano) rec Jan 9th 1924 New York I heard the folks were talkin' here yesterday As I listened by the door; But eavesdroppers, they never hear no good, they say, And I think that I be sore! They said I had a man I give my money to, They said I had a man I give my money to, And if I was broke, he would turn my eyes all blue. They talked about my pa, who was blind in one eye, They talked about my pa, who was blind in one eye, They said he was a sinner and was too mean to cry. I never knock nobody, wonder why they pick on me, I never knock nobody, wonder why they pick on me, There's going to be a funeral if they don't let me be! I never stop to listen, to try and hear no good news, I never stop to listen, to try and hear no good news, I hear things about me give me those eavesdropper's blues.
