Steady On Your Trail


by Charlie Musselwhite
recording of 1986
from
Mellow-Dee (Crosscut CCD 11013), copyright notice


I know ya' didn't want me mama when ya',
lay down 'cross my bed
I followed you through up to Duren Mississippi,
sinotopia's where it led
Found you in Tupelo workin' at a,
Jimmy Jungle store
You was sellin' pin up models and I was cuttin',
two by fours

Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow

Back in Coldwater they said you had,
come and gone
I missed you in Hernando they said you,
hadn't been gone long
Say you took 51 highway,
maybe Memphis bound
I'll bet I find ya' in Arkansas or some,
South Missouri town

Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow

I crossed the river at Kairo,
to one more bad luck town
I drove back through La Panto,
Mochtree and further on down
You might chance to see me,
on the edge of your town
I think about you mama when the,
snow comes driftin' down

Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow

You come like the dust,
you gone with the wind
I'm gonna keep trailin' ya' 'till I,
find you again
I got to Levenhoe but ya',
left your shotgun shack
Your sister on Southsea Avenue says you,
ain't never welcome back

Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow

Looked around Greenwood,
took a while to find your house
Strangers there said you had moved,
little bit further South
Hit the road again,
steady on your trail
It's a cold day in Mississippi but my,
hearts a burnin' hell

Mama why won't ya,
let me be your main man now
Might as well let me love you,
on your trail anyhow

Stingaree

soundclip


by Charlie Musselwhite
recording of 1993
from
In My Time (Alligator 4818) & Alligator Records 25th Anniversary Collection (Alligator 110/111), copyright notice


My baby, she is a honey bee
My baby, she is a honey bee
Might not sting for you but she, always buzzin' me

Man needs honey, gets it when he could
Stingin' always, feel so good

My baby, she is a honey bee,
might not sting for you but she, always buzzin' me

What I like about a, 'bout a honey bee
How she stings me, with her stingaree
Buzz me in the morning, while I'm layin' up
Keeps stingin' till we both, have had enough

My baby, she is a honey bee,
might not sting for you but she, always buzzin' me

I love that stingaree
I love that stingaree
She's my honey bee
I love that stingaree
I love that stingaree
She's my honey bee
I love that stingaree, 'cause she's so good to me
