Everytime I sit down to work out lyrics from a CD, there always seems to be one or two lines that I can't quite make out. Do you know of any sites with loads of blues lyrics? I've down a couple of searchs, but havn't been able to find any sites that I would consider gems.

There are quite a good number of lyrics transcribed at:
http://blueslyrics.tripod.com/
I can't vouch for the accuracy, and the tabs the site claims to have appear to exist only in the mind of the website's writer, but I've found it pretty handy for lyrics.
The site is prone to bandwidth problems, and sometimes gets shut down by the host, but it's worth a look.

Thanks fellas! I've found almost everything I was looking for, and have still got two sites to go. That Robert Johnson one is a gem. I was looking for a couple of his songs.

Just keep in mind when you visit those sites listed that the people who trancribed the lyrics are not necessarily any better than you are at deciphering unclear, low-volume, dialectic, or out-dated slang.
I've seen some pretty shoddy transcriptions out there. Like there was a song on the "Kings of the 12 String Guitar" LP that went "I ain't no lamp, but my wick is burning low. Come and trim my wick before it refuse to glow" Yhe online transcription had for the final 4 words "so it wil fuse the glow".

Yeah, I've found a lot of funny lyrics transcriptions. The "Scuse me while I kiss this guy" syndrome.
