Very little is known about Bobby Grant. He only recorded two songs and was one of the first Delta bluesmen to record.Both his songs were recorded in December 1927 in Chicago. This song includes the word "mamlish" whose meaning has long been lost

when you hear me walkin', turn your lamp down low......
And turn it so your man'll never know

Gonna buy me a bed,and it shine like a morning star.......
When i gets to bed, it rock like a Cadillac car

Your head is nappy,feets so mamley.feets so mamlish long......
And you is like a Turkey comin' through the mamlish corn

I done told youi loved you, what more can i do......
Then you must a-want me to lay down and die for you
