: This is probably the wrong place to ask this question but I can't figure out where else I should go. Ma Rainey recorded a song called Shave 'Em Dry Blues in 1924. Lucille Bogan recorded two songs by the same name with different lyrics to each around 1935. Both sets of the Lucille Bogan lyrics are readily available because they are astoundingly raunchy. I can't find the Ma Rainey lyrics anywhere & the recording I have of her singing the song is probably about 75% static. If anybody knows her lyrics, someone who does, or someone who might, etc. please let me know. Thanks
You can hear one version on the net on this page
I don't know if it's the same version you have.
