I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

I Need A Little Sugar In My Bowl - Bessie Smith

Bessie Smith (April 15, 1894 – September 26, 1937) was an American blues singer. Nicknamed The Empress of the Blues, Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and, along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists. good song lyrics: Tired of bein' lonely, tired of bein' blue, I wished I had some good man, to tell my troubles to Seem like the whole world's wrong, since my man's been gone I need a little sugar in my bowl, I need a little hot dog, on my roll I can stand a bit of lovin', oh so bad, I feel so funny, I feel so sad I need a little steam-heat, on my floor, Maybe I can fix things up, so they'll go What's the matter, hard papa, come on and save you mama's soul 'Cause I need a little sugar, in my bowl, doggone it, I need a little sugar in my bowl I need a little sugar, in my bowl, I need a little hot dog, between my rolls You gettin' different, I've been told, move your finger, drop something in my bowl I need a little steam-heat on my floor, Maybe I can fix things up, so they'll go (spoken: Get off your knees, I can't see what you're drivin' at! It's dark down there! Looks like a snake! C'mon here and drop somethin' here in my bowl, stop your foolin', and drop somethin', in my bowl) “To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson If you support live Blues acts, up and coming Blues talents and want to learn more about Blues news and Fathers of the Blues, Like ---Bman’s Blues Report--- Facebook Page!
