Bad Bob on the Meltdown
I woke up this mornin' and all my shrimps was dead and gone;
I was thinkin' about you, baby, why you hear me weep and moan.
I got dead shrimps here, ooooh, someone fishin' in my pond...
Everything I do, you got your mouth stuck out,
And the hole where I used to fish, baby, you've got me posted out
I got dead shrimps here, 'n' someone fishin' in my pond...
Now you taken my shrimps, baby, you know you turned me down;
I couldn't do nothin' until I got myself unwound.
"Dead Shrimps Blues"
Recorded in San Antonio, TX, 1936
