Hi! Newbie here!

You probably know this by now...

On your Blues pages 1, 2 & 3 you have some blues lyrics
lines. That one that about 'oil fields' that's by LIghtnin' Hopkins
Katey Mae.
Really Nice Site here.

Katey Mae (Track# 2) Disc 1 3:01
Lightnin' Hopkins

Yeah, ya know I try to give that woman
Ev'rything in the world she needs
That's why she don't do nothin'
But lay up in the bed and read
You know she walk just like
She got oil wells in her backyard
Yes, you never hear that woman
Hoot, holler and crying
An' talk about these times bein' hard...
