MAMA'S GOT THE BLUES Sarah Martin & Clarence Williams Bessie Smith w Fletcher Henderson (piano) rec April 28th 1923 Some people say that the weary blues ain't bad, Some people say the weary blues ain't bad, But it's the worst old feelin' that I've ever had! Woke up this mornin' with the jinx around my bed, Woke up this mornin' with the jinx around my bed, I didn't have no daddy to hold my achin' head. Brown skin's deceitful, but a yellow man is worse, Brown skin's deceitful, but a yellow man is worse, I'm gonna get myself a black man and play safety first. I got a man in Atlanta, two in Alabama, Three in Chatanooga, four in Cincinnatti, Five in Mississippi, six in Memphis Tennessee, If you don't like my peaches, please let my orchard be!
