Get Down Dirty Blues Songs (NSFW)

Dirty Blues SongsThe Drunken Bastard and I where discussing Dr. Hook and their gift for writing great dirty songs like “Michelangelo” and “Get My Rocks Off”. That got me thinking about dirty songs in general and the history of these types of songs. Over the last 20 years or so there has been a great restoration movement to restore and recover music from the great blues and swing players of the early 20th century. Within these catalogs of restored music there is an abundance of music that is considered “dirty blues”… These dirty blues songs were raucous, taboo and would wind up most any audience.

I’ve collected ten songs for you here to give you a taste. I will warn you that this content can be explicit and is NSFW.

Maybe one of the dirtiest songs ever written… Lucille is very clear as to what you wants and likes.

Here’s a bit of a horror story from the famous Son’s of the Pioneers. Poor guy.

A modern take on an old dirty blues tune that plays heavily on quick witted tongue in cheek lyrics.

Bo Carter was one of the best known dirty blues singers of the early days. This one is an anthem for you ramrodding daddies out there.
Bo Carter – Ram Rod Daddy

A modern take…

You haven’t had enough of Bo Carter and his romantic style. Take your little woman by the hand and ask her to let you roll her lemon.
Bo Carter – Let Me Roll Your Lemon

Led Zeppelin made the words famous in the 70s, but Blind Roy Fuller used them as his trademark at the height of the dirty blues era.
Blind Roy Fuller – Let Me Squeeze Your Lemon

It’s time to get swinging and become a braggart on behalf of your favorite girl.
Harry Roy and His Orchestra – My Girls Pussy

Almost everyone is familiar with “Big Ten Inch Record”, but every man loves a bowlegged woman.

Turn it up to 11. Here’s a bonus song from Dr. Hook.

  1. All these tracks are pretty cool.

  2. You should check out David Allen Coe XXX Rated album from back in the 80s. IT’S really really NASTY. The best track on it, to me, is Useless. She was into whips and I was into pain.

  3. Yep, I agree… David Allen Coe does have dirty songs. I might get brave enough to post some of those.

  4. Not the album to pull out when the family are around. But good tunes.

  5. I am going to download and listen to these dirty nasty songs.

  6. I wanna squeeze your lemons? Sounds a bit “ooops missus, where’s me trousers?!”. Frankie Howerd would be so proud

  7. Definitely not a family safe album. But pretty awesome.

  8. These are hilarious! I’ve haven’t heard of most of these songs. Very funny!
