I hear these women ravin' 'bout their monkey men About their no-good husbands and their cheating friends These poor women sit around all day and moan Wondering why their wandering papas don't come home But wild women don't worry, wild women don't have the blues Now when you got a man, don't never be on the square 'Cause if you do, he'll have a woman everywhere I never was known to treat no one man right I keep 'em working hard for me both day and night 'Cause wild women don't worry, wild women don't have the blues I've got a disposition and a way of my own When my man starts kicking, I let him find another home I drink plenty of good liquor, walk the streets all night Go home and put my man out if he don't act right Wild women don't worry, wild women don't have the blues You never get nothing by being an angel, child You'd better change your ways and act real wild I wanna tell you something, I wouldn't tell you no lie Wild women are the only kind that really get by 'Cause wild women don't worry, wild women don't have the blues

Sugar Blues 04:39
Sugar blues I got those old sugar blues, the whole town is squawking, I like my coffee, and I like me tea, But the doggone cream, it turned sour on me I'm so disgusted Feel so blue I could lay me down and cry You could say what you choose But I'm all confused I got those old sugar blues More sugar I've got the sugar blues Sugar blues I got those old sugar blues, Somerville is singing, Got a little man, sweet as can be But the doggone fool, He turned sour on me I'm so disgusted Feel so blue I could lay right down here and die You could say what you choose But I'm all confused I got the sweet, sweet sugar blues Blues Union! I've got those old sugar blues

Lucky Devil 04:20
I'd like to be that lucky devil Who gets to burn with you I'd learn to live on that lower level With a big box fan or two Well, I'm no angel, my wings have been clipped I've traded my halo for horns & a whip I'd like to be that lucky devil Who gets to burn with you It's true, I'd like to burn with you

Gee, but it's hard to love someone when that someone don't love you I'm so disgusted, broken-hearted, too I've got those down-hearted blues Once I was crazy 'bout a man -- mistreated me all the time The next man I get has got to promise to be mine, all mine Trouble, trouble, I've had it all my days Trouble, trouble, I've had it all my days It seems that trouble's going to follow me to my grave I ain't never loved but three men in my life I ain't never loved but three men in my life That's my father, my brother and the man that wrecked my life It may be a week, it may be a month or two It may be a week, it may be a month or two But the day you quit me honey, it's coming home to you I got the world in a jug, the stopper's in my hand I got the world in a jug, the stopper's in my hand I'm going to hold on to it till you men come under my command

Got my Mojo working but it just won't work on you I got my Mojo working but it just won't work on you I want to love you so, I don't know what to do I got my rabbit foot I know it's working right I got your strand of hair I keep day and night I got my Mojo working but it just won't work on you I want to love you so till I don't know what to do I got a gypsy woman giving me advice I got some red hot tips I have to keep on ice I got my Mojo working but it just won't work on you Ohh, I want to love you so till I don't know what to do I got my voodoo ashes all around your bed I got my black snake roots underneath your head I got my Mojo working but it just won't work on you Well, I want to love you so till I don't know what to do I got my Mojo working - got my Mojo working I got my Mojo working - got my Mojo working I got my Mojo working - got my Mojo working Got my Mojo working but it just won't work on you

Voodoo Woman 06:14
They call me the voodoo woman And I know the reason why They call me the voodoo woman And I know the reason why Lord if I raise my hand You know the sky begin to cry They call me the voodoo woman I look through water and spy dry land They call me the voodoo woman I look through water and spy dry land I tell all you men if your woman got another man I got a rabbit foot in my pocket, a toad frog in my shoes A craw fish on my shoulder, lookin' dead at you I got dust from a rattlesnake, I got a black spider bone If that don't do it baby, you'd better leave it all alone They call me the voodoo woman And I know the reason why Lord if I raise my name You know the sky begin to cry

about

An EP of vintage (and vintage-sounding) blues covers written by some of our favorite artists, recorded live, masked, and distanced in the time of COVID-19. We performed to a virtual audience via Zoom, with only Blues Union's wonderful organizer, Jenn, in the room. You'll hear her applauding and talking on a few of the tracks.
