Nehi Mama Blues - Blind Joe Reynolds; Blind Joe Reynolds, vocal and guitar in E position, standard tuning.

Some girls wear short dresses, some of these married womens wears 'em, too
Some girls wear short dresses, some of these married womens wears 'em, too
That's the reason the single mens, Lord, don't know what we want to do

Wish the proper judge'd make these women let their dresses down
Wish the proper judge'd make these women let their dresses down
So there quit bein' so doggone much a-murderin' in town

When they pass the law on this short-dress style
When they pass the law on this short-dress style
So we single men can tell a married woman from a child

HUMMED STANZA

Let me tell you, boys, what these knee-high dresses will do
Let me tell you, boys, what these knee-high dresses will do
Get you broke and makin' you hungry, boy, and then come down on you

All you women, sure Lord, oughta be 'shamed
All of you young women, sure Lord, oughta be 'shamed
Takin' these old mens' money when they're walkin' on walkin' canes

HUMMED STANZA

Old man ain't nothin' but a young woman's slave
These old mens ain't nothin', but a young woman's slave
He works hard all his time tryin' to stay with a young man's ways
