North Memphis Blues

by Memphis Minnie

Memphis Minnie (June 3, 1897 – August 6, 1973) was an American blues guitarist, vocalist and songwriter. She was the only female blues artist considered a match to male contemporaries as both a singer and an instrumentalist.




I tell all you people, you can rest in ease
You don't have to worry about cookin', go to North Memphis cafe and eat
I tell all you people, you can rest in ease
Because the North Memphis cafe got everything that you really need
I don't buy no wood, even buy no coal
I go to North Memphis cafe and eat and don't be outdoors
I tell all you people, you can rest in ease
You don't have to worry about cookin', go to North Memphis cafe and eat

I wan' tell y'all somethin', I don't change like the wind
If you go to North Memphis cafe eat you go back again
I tell all you people, you can rest in ease
Because the North Memphis cafe got everything that you really need
Now listen to me good people, I don't even make you mad
You go to North Memphis cafe and get somethin' you never had
I tell all you people, you can rest in ease
Because the North Memphis cafe got everything that you really need
