The song “Wild Women Don’t Get the Blues,” alternatively known as “Wild Women Don’t Have the Blues,” or “Wild Women,” was written in 1924 by blues legend Ida Cox. Cox got her start in vaudeville, but when its popularity waned she turned to the blues. Many of her songs were directed to women who were ground down in life, but searching for dignity and respect.
