about

The Blues Of Freeborn Women

Noya Sol brings to life the original, early 20th century women's Blues: This is the Blues that emerged as the expression of black women who, for the first time in history, found themselves free – a legal, financial and sexual freedom. And the full meaning of freedom includes also the realization that freedom does not take care of you – it only allows you to take care of yourself, as best you can.

The discrepancy between hopes and reality gave rise to a new type of music: powerful, bold, beautiful, unabashedly horny and forthcoming about all aspects of life, both good and sad.

Track Name: Young Woman's Blues
Woke up this mornin'
When chickens was crowin' for day
Felt on the right side of my pilla'
My man had gone away
By this pilla'
He left a note readin'
"I'm sorry, Jane, you got my goat
No time to marry, no time to settle down"
I'm a young woman and ain't done runnin' 'round
I'm a young woman and ain't done runnin' 'round
Some people call me a hobo
Some call me a bum
Nobody knows my name
Nobody knows what I've done
I'm as good as any woman
In your town
I ain't no high yeller
I'm a deep killer of brown
I ain't gonna marry
Ain't gonna settle down
I'm gonna drink good moonshine
And rub these browns down
See that long lonesome road
Lawd, you know it's gotta
And I'm a good woman
And I can get plenty men
Track Name: Preachin' The Blues
Down in tel aviv, IL, under the viaduct ev'ry day, drinking corn and hollerin' hooray
Pianos playing till the break of day
But as I turned my head, I loudly said, "Preach 'em blues, sing them blues"
They certainly sound good to me
I've been in love for the last six months and ain't done worrying yet
Moan'em blues, holler them blues
Let me convert your soul
'Cause just a little spirit of the blues tonight
Let me tell you, girls, that your man ain't treating you right
Let me tell you I don't mean no wrong
I will learn you something if you listen to this song
I ain't here to try to save your soul, just want to teach you how to save your good jelly roll
Going on down the line a little further now
There's many a poor woman down
Read on down to chapter nine
Woman must learn how to take their time
Read on down to chapter ten
Taking other women's men, you are doing a sin
Sing'em, sing'em, sing them blues
Let me convert your soul
Now one sister by the name of Sister Green
Jumped up and done a shimmy you ain't never seen
Sing'em, sing'em, sing them blues
Let me convert your soul
Track Name: Empty Bed Blues
I woke up this morning with an awful aching head
I woke up this morning with an awful aching head
My new man had left me just a room and an empty bed

Bought me a coffee grinder, got the best one I could find
Bought me a coffee grinder, got the best one I could find
So he could grind my coffee, 'cause he had a brand new grind

He knows how to thrill me and he thrills me night and day
Oh, he knows how to thrill me and he thrills me night and day
He's got a new way of loving, almost takes my breath away

Oh, he's got that sweet something and I told my girlfriend Lou
He's got that sweet something and I told my girlfriend Lou
But the way she's ravin', she must have gone and tried it too

When my bed get empty, make me feel awful mean and blue
When my bed get empty, make me feel awful mean and blue
My springs are getting' rusty, sleepin' single like I do

Bought him a blanket, pillow for his head at night
Bought him a blanket, pillow for his head at night
And I bought him a mattress, so he could lay just right

He came home one evening with his spirit way up high
He came home one evening with his spirit way up high
What he had to give me, made me ring my hands and cry

He boiled my first cabbage and he made it awful hot
He boiled my first cabbage and he made it awful hot
When he put in the bacon, it overflowed the pot

When you get good lovin', never go and spread the news
It'll build up to cross you, and leave you with them empty bed blues

Track Name: Black Bottom
[Verse 1]
Way down south in HAIFA CITY
I got a friend, they call dancin' Sammy
Who's crazy about all the belly dances
Black bottom stomps and the Jew baby prances

[Verse 2]
The other night at a swell affair
Soon as the boys found out that I was there
They said, "Come on, Ma let's go to the cabaret"
Where that band you ought to hear me say"

[Verse 3]
I want to see that dance you call the black bottom
I wanna learn that dance
Don't you see the dance you call your big black bottom
That'll put you in a trance

[Verse 4]
All the boys in the neighborhood
They say your black bottom is really good
Come on and show me your black bottom
I want to learn that dance

[Verse 5]
I want to see the dance you call the black bottom
I want to learn that dance
Come on and show that dance you call your big black bottom
It puts you in a trance

[Verse 6]
Early last morning 'bout the break of day
Grandpa told my grandma, I heard him say
Get up and show your old man your black bottom
I want to learn that dance
Track Name: Percolatin' Blues
Oh Baby what's that I hear?
Oh baby what's that I hear?
Just listenin' at what I hear
It's sizzlin' in my ear
Don't know what it's all about
It is time you are finding out
It's only a brand new shout called, the percolatin' blues
That music gives me a thrill
That music gives me a thrill
Good music gives me a thrill
By gollys I can't keep still
That music is what I crave
I'm just no jazz band slave
Can't make my feet behave when I hear them blues
You hop to the left then hop to the right
Then percolate
Hot diggity, percolate
Hot diggity, percolate
Hop to the right, back to the left
Then percolate
Hot diggity, come on waltz come on waltz
Then you start messing around
Now shake it to the east, then shake it to the west
Then percolate
Oh baby lets percolate
It's steaming hot, it's hot
Got rid of my corns and bunions
I'm ready to strut my onions
Dance off my shoes, don't care what I do when I hear them blues
Mr. So-and-so play them blues some mo' while I get it fixed(?)
Now shake it to the east, then shake it to the west
Then percolate
Oh baby let's percolate
It's steaming hot, it's hot
Bring on all you shimmy shakers
Bring on all you ankle breakers
Dance off my shoes, don't care what I do when I hear them blues
Track Name: Johnny’s love
They call me, and they tell me
Promiscuous girl they call me
With a tight red skirt and mile high heels
Johnny's love and Johnny kills me all night long
More and more, and more, and more pain

And more approach In the night
More lovers in the morning
More and more, and more, and more disdain,
People look and they can talk
But to me It doesn't matter
Another glass of wine, another drunk
More and more, and more and more shame
More and more, and more and more watching my life go down the drain.
Track Name: Cat In Heat
Cat In Heat
Lyrics : Noya Sol / oryn leader
seven days of sex with demons
like a cat in heat, so horny
searching like a virgin maiden
digidi, my body's trembling

like a ghost that comes at night
and screams with all it's might

digidi my knees are bending
digidi, my body's trembling
digidi for a happy ending
digidi bring me your spendinig

a week of pleasure wrought in hell
who said its bad to be there?
who'd have thought id be so taken
never full, my itch won't go

digidi, my body's trembling
digidi bring me your spendinig
Track Name: Deep Moaning Blues
My bell rang this morning, didn't know which way to go
My bell rang this morning, didn't know which way to go
I had the blues so bad
I sit right down on my floor
I felt like going on the mountain, jumping over in the sea
I felt like going in the mountain, jumping over in the sea
When my Daddy stay out late he don't care a thing for me
Mmmnn, mmmn
Mmmmn, mmmn
Daddy, daddy, please come home to me
Daddy, daddy, please come home to me
I'm on my way, crazy as I can be
