    Doug, when I was playing in Fort Worth in the 90's there was a local institution called The Bluebird on Horne Street. It was owned at the time by Robert Ealey, a local bluesman. Every time we played there I'd have to check out the jukebox. This was a popular dance number between sets.

    There were some risky songs in the 20 & 30s. Both sung by women and men. Big 10 inch comes to mind and one of my favorites, "Please warm my weiner."

    Yeah, my understanding... and I just got this recently... is that the old folk Blues, the oral tradition prior to or separate from the early recorded Blues, was shockingly raw & raunchy. The explicit raunch that did get recorded was the rare glimpse. All the rest that got recorded was reduced to risque, to double entendre, like Terraplane blues.

    With the introduction of radio promoting artists they had to tone down the lyrics so they could be played over the radio.
