BLUE MONDAY

Your head is nappy / Your feet so mamlish long
It look like a turkey / Comin’ through the mamlish corn


Bobby Grant • Nappy Head Blues • 1927


Note: When the pictured LP came out in 1968 Bobby Grant was thought to be from Mississippi. In the years following he has probably been more accurately placed as an Alabama artist.
