    "In My Girlish Days" Lyrics

    Ma Rainey feat. Memphis Minnie

    Late hours at night, trying to play my hand
    Through my window, out stepped a man
    I didn't know no better
    Oh boys

    In my girlish days
    My mama cried, papa did, too
    Oh, daughter, look what a shame on you
    I didn't know no better

    Oh boys
    In my girlish days

    I flagged a train, didn't have a dime
    Trying to run away from that home of mine

    I didn't know no better
    Oh boys
    In my girlish days
    I hit the highway, caught me a truck

    Nineteen and seventeen, when the winter was tough
    I didn't know no better
    Oh boys
    In my girlish days

    Lord, play it for me now
    All of my playmates is not surprised,
    I had to travel 'fore I got wise
    I found out better
    And I still got my girlish ways
