Various Artists – Grinder Man Blues - Memphis Slim lyrics

(piano intro)

My name is Memphis Slim
They call me the Grinder Man
My name is Memphis Slim
They call me the Grinder Man
If you be my customer
I'll let you have it on an easy plan

I do my ramblin' at midnight
An I don't be seen in the day
I do my ramblin' at midnight
I don't be seen in the day
While ev'rything is quiet an easy
Mr. Grinder, can have his way

I got so many customers
It takes me a week to get around
I got so many customers
It takes me a week to get around
But you need not be uneasy, baby
Mr Grinder, won't let you down

'Well, alright then'

(piano)

'Ev'ry tip of the tray
You'll find that the grinder
Play it to you this way'

'Well, I'm gonna play these blues
'till I see, Miss Ora Lee'

'She's my special customer'

'Yas, yas, yas, yas, yas

If you wanna see me, baby
You better see me while you can
You wanna see me, baby
You had better see me while you can
Because I'm a very busy fella
You know they call me the Grinder Man.

~
