Songfilter: Help ID this singer/song
February 25, 2015 5:25 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to identify the singer/song in this track. Female vocalist, blues music.

The majority of the track has the singer recounting an amusing anecdote [while the band plays]. At 06:10 she starts singing and sings a few verses of Worried Life Blues:
Oh lordy lord, oh lordy lord
It hurts me so bad, for us to part
But someday baby, I ain't gonna worry my life anymore
And then some alternate lyrics for it:
One and one is two, Two and three is five
I ain't playing with you baby, I'm tired of all that jive
And right now baby, I ain't gonna worry my life anymore

You heard my story, yes you heard my song
Woah goodbye baby, so long I'm gone
Cause right now baby, I ain't gonna worry my life anymore

I wonder if it could be Ruth Brown, maybe early Ruth Brown? She has that kind of sassy approach.

Thanks purplesludge, it wasn't Ruth Brown but googleing for her set me on the path to Katie Webster. I can't find the exact track I have there, but I guess it's a live version and she's singing a mashup of Red Negligee with Worry My Life Anymore.
