What a great rendition of this song done by Magic Sam in 1967.


The original is from 1957, published by Bobby "Blue" Bland. The title was very little different: "Don't Want No Woman".



"I don't want no woman telling me what to do

I don't want no woman telling me what to do
Well, I'm grown now, darling, just as grown as you
I don't want no woman telling me this and that
No, I don't want no woman telling me this and that
Yes, it makes me mad, darling, and I don't go for that
You drink your whiskey, I'll drink my wine
You tend to your business and I'll tend to mine
I don't want no woman, telling me how to live my life
Yes, I'm gonna leave you darling, cause I don't want no wife
You used to boss your man, that I can't deny
Before I let you boss me, I lay down and die
I don't want no woman telling me how to live my life
Yes, I'm gonna leave you darling, cause I don't want no wife
You used to boss your man, that I can't deny
Before I let you boss me, I lay down and die
I don't want no woman telling me how to live my life
Yes, I'm gonna leave you darling, cause I don't want no wife
I don't want no woman telling me how to live my life
I don't want no woman telling me how to live my life
Yes, I'm gonna leave you darling, cause I don't want no wife..."
