    I've always wondered what on earth this song was about. Now I've come across an interesting explanation from The Cambridge Companion to Blues and Gospel Music (Allen Moore, 2002). Originally this concept was from the country, and referred to having a partner who moved on to someone else (richer? more powerful?). But Sonny Boy may well have been referring to the way that Black artists of his era were being ripped off by the wider, white-dominated music industry in the form of cover tracks, the refusal to pay royalties etc. The author doesn't substantiate this argument but it feels plausible. The track seems to have been put down in 1957, which was a couple of years after Elvis made his breakthrough on the back of Crudup's It's all right mama. I can believe that Williamson could have been bitter at the commercial success of the White Rock and Roll pioneers.

    Biggest buzzkill @Last.fm below me. V~Points at him~V . Read some of his words of wit on here. Why are you even here? If it were left up to you, music would never ever evolve. Sort of life that was depicted in the movie "Pleasantville" However for him life stays in black & white with shades of gray forever with no color, The only music allowed to be playing is The Blues and assorted other sad & pessimistic songs pre-1970. It gets worse. People walking around like it's the1948 novel George Orwell's "1984". A sad state of affairs ya got going there @BigChoupique.

    The title is such a chilling metaphor, and I love that razor-blade mouth harp thing.

    You get your frog all dressed up nice and living large and wearing a pretty blue dress and some snake in a zoot suit come along and gobbles her down. That's fattening frogs for snakes.
