BLUES (King Solomom Hill)

Whoopee Blues (Take 1) by King Solomom Hill

 

recording of ca. January 1932, Crafton, Wisconsin
from Backwoods Blues (Document DOCD 5036), copyright notice

Wherever you been gone all day, that you may make whoopee all night
Tell me you been gone all day, that you may make whoopee all night
I’m gonna take my razor and cut your late hours, you wouldn’t think I’d be servin’ you right

Undertaker been here and gone, I gave him your height and seize
Undertaker been here and gone, I gave him your height and seize
You’ll be makin’ whoopee with the devil in hell tomorrow night

Ah, you made me love you, now you got me for your slave
Baby, you done made me love you, now I got me for your slave
From now you’ll be makin’ whoopee, deep in your lonesome grave

The devil got 90,000 women, he just need one more
Boys, the devil got 90,000 women, now he just needs one more
He’s on the mountain callin’ for you, woman broke down, sure must go

Next time you go out, carry your black suit along
Coffin’s gonna be your prison, hell gonna be your brand new home

Koo-koo’s go howlin’, sun is almost down
Koo-koo’s go howlin’, sun is almost down
I got to go to that valley1, ain’t a house for 25 miles around

__________

Note: King Solomon Hill sings this take of “Whoopee Blues” in his lower voice.
The surviving recording of take 1 is almost impossible to decipher the lyrics.
This dark and vengeful song is about a woman cheating on her man with the devil;

Note 1: that valley, alternate text “Deatch Valley”.

    lo malo es que no tiene imágenes, y por lo general uno saca sus conclusiones con lo que se ve, talvez para la próxima, acompañen estos datos con laminas
