STINGING SNAKE BLUES Madelyn James Madelyn James recorded 1930 I woke up this mornin', look what I found in my bed, I woke up this mornin', look what I found in my bed, One o' those no good pests, lyin' all around my head! That snake it stung me and I mean it stung me bad, That snake it stung me and I mean it stung me bad, I believes in my soul he gave me everything he had! I mean it was 'xactly like a man, I heard his name was Jack, I mean it was 'xactly like a man, I heard his name was Jack, He would "sugar" and "baby" you, then stab you in your back! I feels awfully bad, misery in my head, I feels awfully bad, misery in my head, Now listen here mister stingin' snake, I guess you think I'm dead! So I called the policeman to bring the wagon down, So I called the policeman to bring the wagon down, And fifteen minutes, news was all over town! I've got the stingin' snake blues, let me get on your stingin' snake soul, I've got the stingin' snake blues, let me get on your stingin' snake soul, Now the next one sting me, I'll fix you, doggone your soul!
