blind lemon jefferson – chinch bug blues lyrics


i never feel uneasy : i know how you love your tricks
you leave town the spate of ten days : you got your
business well fixed

i wonder if the chinches bite in beaumont : bite like
they do in beale street town
the first night i stayed in memphis : chinch bugs turned
my bed around

i had to get sinful with the bedbugs : to keep the
chinches from taking my life
because the chinches got my number : wrote a letter to my

my wife caught me easing : way across that richland road
the next time i go to slip out : i ain’t going to leave
on the light anymore

my wife has quit me : and my best pigmeat gal has too
all of -lord- : here with the chinch bug blues
