Mumblin' and Shootin' the blues

Mumblin' Biscuit Jefferson's kitchen
Chicago, 1938

Junkers Blues
by Champion Jack Dupree
all right... I'm sick as I can be...

Some people call me a junker, cause I'm loaded all the time
I just feel happy and I feel good all the time

Some people say I use a needle, and some say I slip cocaine
But that's the best old feelin' that I ever need

Say goodbye, goodbye to whiskey
Lord and so long to gin
I just want my reefer, I just want to feel high again

oh yes I'm a junker
I feel all right

Some people, some people crave for chicken
And some crave for a house steak
But when I get loaded lord I don't want my milk and cake

oh yeah that's what I want now...
They call me a junker...
Cause I'm loaded all the time...
But that ain't nothin that I feel good all the time...
