Blue Spirit Blues

Bessie Smith
Language: English



Had a dream last night
That I was dead
Had a dream last night
That I was dead
Evil spirits
All around my bed

The devil came
And grabbed my hand
The devil came
And grabbed my hand
Took me way down
To that red hot land

Mean blues spirits
Stuck their forks in me
Mean blues spirits
Stuck their forks in me
Made me moan
And groan in misery

Fairies and dragons
Spitting out blue flames
Fairies and dragons
Spitting out blue flames
Showing their teeth
For they was glad I came

Demons with their eyelash
Dripping blood
Demons with their eyelash
Dripping blood
Dragging sinners
To their brimstone flood

"This is hell", I cried
Cried with all my might
"This is hell", I cried
Cried with all my might
Oh, my soul
I can't bear the sight

Started running
'Cause it is my cup
Started running
'Cause it is my cup
Run so fast
Till someone woke me up
