willie mae "big mama" thornton nasceu no alabama e cresceu a ouvir música - o seu pai era pastor baptista e a mãe cantava na igreja. teve uma carreira não muito longa mas ficará lendariamente associada a dois azuis: "ball 'n' chain" e, sobretudo, "hound dog", que gravou em 1952 - e que veio a ser quatro anos depois, num remake com outro ritmo, um dos primeiros êxitos do rock&roll, pela mão do então estreante elvis presley.



You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' round my door
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' round my door
You can wag your tail
But I ain't gonna feed you no more
You told me you was high class
I could see through that
You told me you was high class
I could see through that
And baby I know
You ain't no real cool cat
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' round my door
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' round my door
You can wag your tail
But I ain't gonna feed you no more
You made me feel so blue
You made me weep and moan
You made me feel so blue
You made me weep and moan
'Cause I'm looking for a woman
All your lookin' for is a home
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' round my door
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Been snoopin' round my door
You can wag your tail
But I ain't gonna feed you no more
