BIG FEELING BLUES Lyrics – MA RAINEY

[Spoken Intro]
“All these many years I’ve been pleadin’ for a man
How come I can’t get me a real Monkey man?
I’m not no triflin’ woman

[Verse 1/Ma]
I’ve been lookin’ for a man I can call my own
Been married many times but they left my home
Ah, big feelin’ blues, worst I ever had
I’ve got the big feelin’ blues I mean I’ve got them bad

[Verse 2/CJ]
If you’re lookin’ for a brown, come get this chocolate cream
I’m a big kid-man – just out of my teens

[Verse 2/Ma]
Ah, big feelin’ blues, worst I ever had
I’ve got them big feelin’ blues, I mean I’ve got them bad

[Verse 3]
Unlucky with my yellow, unlucky with my brown

The black bitches keep on throwin’ me down’
Ah, big feelin’ blues, worst I’ve ever had
I’ve got the big feelin’ blues, I mean I’ve got them bad

[Verse 4/CJ]
If you need a good man why don’t you try me?
I sure can put you out of your misery
[Verse 4/Ma]
“Ah, big feelin’ blues, worst I’ve ever had
I’ve got the big feelin’ blues, I mean I’ve got them bad

[Verse 5]
There’s a whole lot left, what’s left is good
Give me a chance, honey, I’ll make you change your neighbourhood
Ah, big feelin’ blues, worst I’ve ever had
I’ve got the big feelin’ blues, I mean I’ve got them bad”
