Plantation Pieces, Camp Meeting Songs
Something for the blues,
Something for the blues, He was wanting something,
Something for the blues; It might have been a possum
Or it might have been new shoes, But he was wanting something
That was something for the blues.
Just then there started playing
A minstrel nigger band, And it was playing Dixie
Way down in Dixieland; And that nigger very happy
Began to shout and muse, The band is playing something
That is something for the blues.
Something for the blues,
Something for the blues, He was wanting something,
Something for the blues; It might have been a possum
Or it might have been new shoes, But he was wanting something
That was something for the blues.
