john len chatham nasceu em memphis, no tennessee rural do começo do séc. xx. o seu pai era pianista e ensinou-o. 
mais tarde o rapaz começou a tocar e a gravar azuis sob o nome de peter chatham (o nome do pai).
com o sucesso, mudou o nome artístico para memphis slim. diz-se que tem cerca de 600 gravações, entre elas o famoso "everyday i have the blues". acho piada a este também.



I walked into a beer tavern
To give a girl a nice time
I had forty-five dollars when I enter
When I left I had one dime

Wasn't she a beer drinkin' woman?
Don't ya know, man don't ya know?
She was a beer-drinkin' woman
And I don't want to see her no more

Now, when I spend down to my last dime
She said, 'Darlin' I know you're not through'
I said, 'Yes, baby doll
And the trophy belongs to you'

Wasn't she a beer drinkin' woman?
Don't you know, man don't you know?
She was a beer-drinkin' woman
And I don't wanna see her no more

Now she'd often say, 'Excuse me a minute
I've got to step around here'
And ev'ry time she came back
She had room for another quart of beer

Wasn't that a beer drinkin' woman?
Don't ya know, man, don't ya know?
She was a beer drinkin' woman
And I don't want to see her no mo'.
