about

This album is a tribute to the great bluesmen of Mississippi, not only those who wrote the songs included here, but also the unknown authors of traditional songs and unknown artists lost somewhere out there… The legends, stories, melodies and rhythms of these old blues and folk songs are the inspiration for musicians from all countries and cultures. They have been an inspiration for me, too, and they will always come back to me in melancholy times. God bless you, my old friends. I hope we will meet someday and talk about old times and how we were trying to cheat the Devil.

Limboski



"Oh Georgie Buck, oh Georgie Buck
Oh Georgie Buck said so
Georgie Buck is dead and the last words he said
He said he didn't want no shortning in his bread
Shortning in his bread, swimming in his head..."

Track Name: There ain't no heaven on the county road
An' if I get drunk in yo' city, ole woman, Lord, Lord,
An' someone come an' fall down at yo' door,
Don't you run yo' hand in my pocket, ole woman, Lord, Lord,
An' take all my silver an' all my gold.
'Case I ain't been there but I been told, Lord, Lord,
That there ain't no Heaven on de county road.
She'll take a stranger on her knee, knee, knee,
An' she'll tell him things that she won't tell me,
An' if I get killed in Arkansas-saw-saw,
Won't you send my body to my mother-in-law.

"KEEP YOUR LAMP" 10:22
(Blind Willie Johnson)


Keep your lamp trimmed and burnin'
Keep your lamp trimmed and burnin'
Keep your lamp trimmed and burnin'
See what the Lord has done
Brother don't get crying
Brother don't get crying
Brother don't get crying
See what the Lord has done


Here stands Johny with knife in his hand
Here stands Johny with knife in his hand
See what the Lord has done
Hmmmm
See what the Lord has done

Here mu journey is almost over
Here mu journey is almost over
Here mu journey is almost over
See what the Lord has done
Hmmm... get cryin'
Don't get cryin'
See what the Lord has done
Track Name: Canned Heat Blues
4. "CANNED HEAT BLUES" 5:25
(Tommy Johnson)

When I'm walking in the morning I see canned heat* on my mind
Woked up this morning, I see canned heat on my mind
Woked up this morning with the canned heat on my mind

My mama, my mama crying canned heat killing me

Mama cryin, mama crying, it's killing me
Canned heat don't kill me, you know I'll never die


Oh my mama cryin', canned heat killing me
Brownskin women don't do the easy roll
That's why canned heat is round my bed
I woked up this morning canned heat round my bed

When I woked up this morning canned heat round my bed
Run here somebody, run here somebody
Take this blues away, take my blues away
Brownskin women don't do the easy roll

Canned heat, don't kill me, you know I'll never die
Canned heat, don't kill me, you know I'll never die
Canned heat, don't kill me, you know I'll never die


a particularly lethal drink which was obtained by extracting the alcohol from solidified methylated spirits which was sold as a fuel for outdoor cooking. Canned heat could be bought from street dealers who had made a business out of this process during the prohibition era.
Track Name: Georgie Buck's Bahama Beach
"GEORGIE BUCK'S BAHAMA BEACH"
(based on a traditional song)


Oh Georgie Buck, oh Georgie Buck
Oh Georgie Buck, oh Georgie Buck
Oh Georgie Buck said so
Georgie Buck is dead and the last words he said
He said he didn' want no shortning in his bread
Shortning in his bread, swimming in his head

Oh Georgie Buck, oh Georgie Buck
Oh Georgie Buck said so
Georgie Buck is dead and the last words he said
He said never give a woman her way
If you give her a way, she'll be gone all day
He said never give a woman her way
Track Name: Pallet on your floor
"PALLET ON YOUR FLOOR”
(Mississipi John Hurt)


Oh make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me a pallet down,
Make it soft, make it low
So my gal will never know
Make me a pallet on your floor

I will give everybody my regards
Even if I'll have to ride the rods
If I'll make Atlanta with no place to go
Make me pallet on your floor

Oh make me down a pallet on your floor
Make me a pallet down,
Make it soft, make it low
So my gal will never know
Make me a pallet on your floor
Track Name: Washinghton D.C.
9. "WASHINGHTON D.C.” 4:02
(Skip James)


I'm in the hospital
Washington D.C.
Ain't got nobody
To see about me

You know I'm's a good man
But I'm's a po' man
You can understand

All the doctors
And nurses, too
They come and ask me
'Who in the world are you?'

I say, I'm the good man
But I'm's a po' man
You can understand

The doctors and nurses
They shakin' their heads
Say, 'Take this po' man
And put him to bed'

You know he's a good man
But he's a po' man
We can understand

I met a little lady
She promised me
That she would love me
And always be sweet

She found out I was a po' man
And thus I was a good man
She couldn't understand, no

Now, when she left me
She got in the do'
Waved me, good-bye
I haven't seen her no mo'

You know I'm a good man
But I'm a po' man
You can understand

The doctors and nurses
They shakin' my hand
'You can go home now, Skip
You're a sound, well man'

You know you're a good man
But you're a po' man
We can understand

I'd thankin' my doctor
And I was shakin' his hand
I'll play this Blues
'Till you're a wealthy man'

You knew I was a good man
But I was a po' man
You could understand
Track Name: Betty and Dupree
"BETTY AND DUPREE” 5:50
(Chuck Willis)


Betty told Dupree I wanna diamond ring
Betty told Dupree I wanna diamond ring
Dupree told Betty I will give you most everything...

Dupree asked Betty honey want you be my wife
Dupree asked Betty honey want you be my wife
She said I'm yours I'm yours for the rest of my life...

Than he got himself a pistol and went to a jewelery store
Than he got himself a pistol and went to a jewelery store
And he killed a policeman and wounded three or four more....

I come to see you but I cannot see your face
I come to see you but I cannot see your face
I love you Dupree but I cannot take your place

ohh....

Sail on sail on poor Dupree sail on
Sail on sail on poor Dupree sail on
You ain't mind sailing you'll be sailing doggone long...

I love you Dupree but I cannot take your place
I love you Dupree but I cannot take your place
Sail on sail on... one more...

ohhh....

Woke up this morning blues walking round my bed

Stay out, stay out there all day


Oh please, take me to the river

It's got to be the way take me to the rain
I'm gonna jump in cold water
Cold water, cold water...
Track Name: Preaching blues
Mmmmm mmmmm I's up this mornin'

I's up this mornin'
ah, blues walkin' like a man
Worried blues

And the blues fell mama's child
tore me all upside down
Blues fell mam's child
and it tore me all upside down
travel on, poor Bob
just cain't turn you 'round
The blu-u-u-u-ues
is a low-down shakin' chill
spoken: Yes, preach 'em now.


Mmmmm mmmmm
is a low-down shakin' chill
You ain't never had 'em, I
I hope you never will
Well, the blues
is a schin' old heart disease
spoken: Do it. now.
You gon' do it?
Tell me about it.



Let the blues
is a low-down achin' heart disease
Like consumption
killing me by degrees
I can study rain
oh, ohm drive, oh, oh, drive my blues
I been studyin' the rain and
I'm 'on drive my blues away
Goin' to the 'stil'ry
stay out there all day
