The early versions of „Ain’t Nobody’s Business“ feature vocals with piano and sometimes horn accompaniment. The remaining verses are eight bars in length, with the first four describing a situation, such as „If I go to church on Sunday, then cabaret on Monday“, and the last four concluding with the refrain „Tain’t nobody’s biz-ness if I do“. Porter Grainger, who had been Bessie Smith’s accompanist from 1924 to 1928, and Everett Robbins, who had his own bands and worked briefly with Mamie Smith. Anna Meyers recorded „‚Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness if I Do“ on October 19, 1922, in New York City, backed by the Original Memphis Five. In 1928, a country blues rendition was recorded by Memphis, Tennessee, singer-guitarist Frank Stokes. World War II blues era, the jump blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon revived the song as „Ain’t Nobody’s Business“.
He performed it in the West Coast blues style with understated backing by piano, guitar, bass, drums, and a three-piece horn section. In 2011, Witherspoon’s „Ain’t Nobody’s Business“ was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame. According to the Foundation, „its message continued to resonate, as borne out by the remarkable success of Witherspoon’s two-part rendition, which remained on the Billboard ‚race records‘ charts for 34 weeks.
