Prove It On Me Blues, written by Ma Rainey, 1928:

Went out last night, had a great big fight
Everything seemed to go wrong.
I looked up, to my surprise
The gal I was with was gone.

Where she went, I don't know
I mean to follow everywhere she goes.
Folks say I'm crooked. I don't know where she took it.
I want the whole world to know.

They say I do it, ain't nobody caught me
You sure got to prove it on me

I went out last night with a crowd of my friends,
They must've been women, 'cause I don't like no men.
It's true I wear a collar and a tie,
Makes the wind blow all the while.

You say I do it, ain't nobody caught me
You sure got to prove it on me.

You say I do it, ain't nobody caught me
Sure got to prove it on me.

I went out last night with a crowd of my friends,
They must've been women, 'cause I don't like no men.
Wear my clothes just like a fan
I talk to the women like any old man.

They say I do it;, ain't nobody caught me
You sure got to prove it on me.
