Bessie Smith – House Rent Blues

Where’s that coalman?
I want a big lump o’ coal this morning!

On a cold, dark and stormy night,
On a cold, dark and stormy night,
They want to put me out, and it wasn’t daylight;

And on my door they nailed a sign,
And on my door they nailed a sign,
I got to move from here if the rent man don’t change his mind.

See me comin’, put your woman oudoors,
See me comin’, put your woman oudoors,
You know I ain’t no stranger and I been here before.

Lawdy, what a feelin’!
Bin man comes a-creepin’,
In my bed I sleepin’,
He left me with those house rent blues
