Sweet Home Chicago
Robert Johnson Lyrics


Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now one and one is two
Two and two is four
I'm heavy loaded, baby
I'm booked, I gotta go

Cryin' baby
Honey don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now two and two is four
Four and two is six
You gonna keep monkeyin' round with your friend-boy, you gonna get your
Business all in a trick

But I'm cryin' baby
Honey don't you wanna go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now six and two is eight
Eight and two is ten
Friend-boy, she trick you one time
She sure gonna do it again

But I'm cryin' hey, hey
Baby don't you want to go?
To the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

I'm goin' to California
From there to Des Moines Iowa
Somebody will tell me that you
Need my help someday, cryin'

Hey, hey
Baby don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

I tried learning the guitar recently and now I have a profound understanding why he sold his soul to the devil to get these chops.

What is so difficult about it? It doesnt sound like it would be very difficult to play it, but at the same time i dont play guitar so.

Leonardo Somma

That was just a myth. People thought that because he practiced guitar in a graveyard. When really, he practiced really hard every night because it was the only place he could go without disturbing anyone or anyone getting mad at him for being a black man trying to learn an instrument in times of racial segregation

Robert Johnson is one of the most influential musicians of all time. I'm pretty sure almost every popular blues guitarist would list him as an inspiration.

Luke Austin

@Pedro Urbieta my brother can play guitar and he learnt it through pure practice and dedication. Are you saying he "sold his soul"?

Pedro Urbieta

same dude that sold his soul

If you're listening to a song any rock n'roll,  you know that everything started from here.The rock comes from blues and sweet home chiocago is the beginning of the movement called delta blues.   These are the real roots of the music, that one that makes you think and especially the one that inspired the great musicians.
