I am looking for the lyrics to a Pink Anderson song: "Mama where'd you sleep last night". Chords would be a special unexpected treat.

Roger, how different is it from the 2 versions of "In the Pines" that are in the DT?

I don't know this song. Is it related to Bob Dylan's "Poor By Blues"?

Thanks Guest,

I was relying on memory. Do you have any of the other words to the song?

I appreciate the offer, Guest, but I have a CD of the song. The problem is I cannot understand all of the words.

Pink Anderson sings MAMA WHERE DID YOU STAY LAST NIGHT on the album "Carolina Blues Man, Vol. 1" (Prestige/Bluesville LP OBC-504, 1961; reissued as Original Blues Classics CD 5042, 1993) and on the various-artists compilation "The Bluesville Years, Vol. 6: Blues Sweet Carolina Blues," (Prestige CD 9914, 1996).

I was able to transcribe this much from a couple of sound samples. (I don't know if I got the verses in the right order.):


...I went and laid, laid my head on the Little Sun railroad track.
I got to thinkin' 'bout my baby. Y'ought to seen me jerkin' back.
An' I sure ain't got no lovin' baby now....

... an' your shoes wasn't tied up right.

Woman, I feel like snappin' my pistol in your face,
Let the Coal Line (?) graveyard be your restin' place.
Well, I sure ain't got no....

The line is:
"Let the cold hard graveyard be your resting place" (Hard & Yard linked by rhyme.

Pink lazily drops the letter "D" in cold and the "H" & "D" in hard. He also kind of strings the 2 words together resulting in:
"Let the col-ar graveyard be your restin' place".

MAMA, WHERE DID YOU STAY LAST NIGHT?
As sung by Pink Anderson on "Blues Legend" (2011)

Tell me, pretty baby, where in the world did you stay last night?
Why your dress all wrinkled, an' your shoes wasn't tied up right.

Woman, I feel like snappin' my pistol in your face.
Let the col' hard graveyard be your restin' place.

Well, I sure ain't got no lovin' baby now.
I sure I ain't got no lovin' woman now.
She tol' me late las' night, "You don't need no gal nohow."

I went and laid, laid my head on the Little Sun railroad track.
I got to thinkin' 'bout my baby. Y'ought to seed me jerkin' back.

Well, I sure ain't got no lovin' baby now.
I sure I ain't got me no lovin' woman now.
She tol' me late las' night, "Pink, you don't need no gal nohow."

(I reckon I don't; I ain't got ne'er'n.)

Mm-hmm, hey, mama, you know that ain't no way to do.
You got a man in jail an' a kid in the avenue.

Lord, I sure ain't got no lovin' baby now.
I know I ain't got me no lovin' woman now.
She tol' me late las' night, "You don't need no gal nohow."

If your bes' gal ever quits you when you ain't done nothing wrong,
Well, your heart'd be in sorrow an' your life won't last you long.
