Blind Lemon Jefferson — Black Snake Moan lyrics

Blind Lemon Jefferson
Recording of circa June 1926, Chicago, Illinois
From
Blind Lemon Jefferson (Milestone 47022)
I - I ain't got no mama now
I - I ain't got no mama now
She told me late last night, "You don't need no mama no
How"
Mmm, mmm, black snake crawlin' in my room
Mmm, mmm, black snake crawlin' in my room
Some pretty mama better come and get this black snake
Soon
Ohh-oh, that must have been a bed bug, baby a chinch
Can't bite that hard
Ohh-oh, that must have been a bed bug, honey a chinch
Can't bite that hard
Ask my sugar for fifty cents, she said "Lemon, ain't a
Child in the yard"
Mama, that's all right, mama that's all right for you
Mama, that's all right, mama that's all right for you
Mama, that's all right, most seen all you do
Mmm, mmm, what's the matter now?
Mmm, mmm, honey what's the matter now?
Sugar, what's the matter, don't like no black snake no
How
Mmm, mmm, wonder where my black snake gone?
Mmm, mmm, wonder where this black snake gone?
Black snake mama done run my darlin' home
