Charley Patton - Mean Black Cat Blues




It's a mean black cat, Lordy, clawing on my door
It's a mean black cat, Lordy, clawing on my door
I'm going down to Louisiana where I won't care why no more
It's a mean black cat, Lordy, all around my bed
It's a mean black cat, Lordy, all around my bed
I'm gonna get up some morning kill that black cat dead
It's a mean black cat, Lordy, Lord its wearing my clothes
It's a mean black cat, Lordy, I mean it's wearing my clothes
If you want more my loving just let that black go
First time I met you I said you was a cruel
First time I met you said you was a cruel
You got a new way of loving, well it ain't no fool
Next time I met you, you know I made a hit
Next time I met you, you know I made a hit
But you got a new way of loving, well it just won't quit
