HAUNTED HOUSE BLUES J C Johnson 1924 Bessie Smith w Don Redman (clarinet) & Fletcher Henderson (piano) rec Jan 9th 1924 Don't bring no ghosts in the front, Get 'em round to the back door! This house is so haunted with dead men I can't lose, This house is so haunted with dead men I can't lose, Have a sneaky old feelin', gives me the haunted house blues. I can't sleep no more, I done lost my appetite, I can't sleep no more, done lost my appetite, 'Cause my mistreatin' daddy hangs around me day and night. He moans when I'm sleepin', he wakes me at two a.m, He moans when I'm sleepin', he wakes me at two a.m, And he makes me swear I'll have no other man but him. Now I'm so worried, and I'm blue all the time, Now I'm so worried, and I'm blue all the time, Go tell the undertaker to fix that old coffin of mine! Lord, help us to get right! I'm scared to stay here, I'm scared to leave this town, I'm scared to stay here, I'm scared to leave this town, But a feelin' does tell me to burn this house on down, Burn this house on down!
