Lyr Add: Jealous Hearted Me (Carter Family)

DigiTrad:
ANCHORED IN LOVE
ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT?
ARE YOU TIRED OF ME MY DARLING
BLUE EYES
BUDDIES IN THE SADDLE
CHEWING GUM
DEAR COMPANION
DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH
GEORGIE ON THE IRT (parody on Engine 143)
GOD GAVE NOAH THE RAINBOW SIGN
GOLD WATCH AND CHAIN
I AIN'T GOT NO HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
I CAN'T FEEL AT HOME IN THIS WORLD ANYMORE
JUST A FEW MORE DAYS
LULU WALLS
RAILROADING ON THE GREAT DIVIDE
SAILOR ON THE DEEP BLUE SEA
SINGLE GIRL
THE CUBAN SOLDIER
THE LITTLE GYPSY GIRL
THE STORMS ARE ON THE OCEAN
THE WRECK ON THE C & O
WAVES ON THE SEA
YOU ARE MY FLOWER

From: Ralph Butts

A lyric a day keeps the blues away......Tiger

JEALOUS HEARTED ME — Carter Family

Takes a rockin' chair to rock,
Takes a rubber ball to roll,
Takes the man I love
To satisfy my soul,

    REFRAIN (Each stanza)
    Because I'm jealous,
    Jealous hearted me,
    I said I'm jealous,
    Jealous as I can be.

Got a stove in the kitchen,
And it bakes nice and brown,
But I need a poppa
To turn the damper down,

You can have my money.
You can have my home,
But, for goodness sakes, women,
Let my man alone,

Gonna buy me a bulldog
To watch while I sleep,
To watch this man of mine
On his midnight creep,

Just got back from the Carter Family Memorial Festival, and this is one of the songs that Janette and Joe Carter sang. They are the son and daughter of Sara and AP Carter.

Hey Tiger:

Do you have the words to "Fifty Miles of Elbow Room"? I am looking for them if anyone has them. Keep On the Sunnyside. John

I Have "50 Miles Of Elbow Room" by Hank Locklin

And I have "Jealous Hearted Me" by Minnie Pearl.
Few know it, but she did record several songs.

John......

Don't have it, either on computer or recordings. In fact, I've never heard it. Let us know if it shows up (Gene?).

Compare Charley Lincoln's "Jealous Hearted Blues," on Columbia 14305-D, recorded in 1927, several years before the Carters did this for Decca.

Compare, also, Blind Willie (McTell)'s "Weary Hearted Blues," recorded for Victor in 1929 but never issued, and recorded again for ARC in 1933, on Vocalion 02668. Excellent retooling of the Lincoln song. "I used to jump [my songs] from other writers, but I'd 'range 'em up my way," as McTell told an interviewer in 1956.

By the way, the guitar chords for Jealous Hearted Me are fine but you have to work hard to get that wonderful thumping bass lead throughout the song. This song really defines the Carter style. Homespuntapes produced a lovely Mike Seeger video lesson about Carter family music.
The slightly saucy lyrics here are pretty daring for this wonderful group, too. thanks for the postings! Delmar Lemming

Jealous Hearted Me (originally Jealous Hearted Blues) was recorded by Gertrude “Ma” Rainey in 1924 as the B side of Paramount 12252. Richie made reference to Ma Rainey's recording back in 2008. If the Carter Family learned this tune from Leslie Riddle then Riddle probably learned it from the Ma Rainey recording. The Ma Rainey recording may be heard on YouTube. It's interesting how the Carter Family took Ma Rainey's lowdown, draggy blues number and turned it into a spritely squared-off white number. I've always loved both versions of the tune.
