I'm a Steady Rollin' Man
Robert Johnson Lyrics


I'm a steady rollin' man, I roll both night and day
I'm a steady rollin' man, hmm, I roll both night and day
But I haven't got no sweet woman, hmm, boys, to be rollin' this-a way

I'm the man that rolls, when icicles hangin' on the tree
I'm the man that rolls, when icicles hangin' on the tree
And now you hear me howlin', baby, hmm, down on my bended knee

I'm a hard-workin' man, have been for many years, I know
I'm a hard-workin' man, have been for many long years, I know
And some cream puff's usin' my money, ooh well, babe, but that'll never be no more

You can't give your sweet woman everything she wants in one time
Ooh, you can't give your sweet woman, everything she wants in one time
Well, boys, she get ramblin' in her brain, hmm, some monkey man on her mind

I'm a steady rollin' man, I roll both night and day
I'm a steady rollin' man and I roll both night and day
Well I don't have no sweet woman, hmm, boys, to be rollin' this-a way

Once you get an ear for the origional version after hearing it so electrified by other artists you realize how much nicer it is in it's pure form

rushil gholkar

Clapton's version is damn good tbf

diehardman

So true, the soul is just gone somehow

Joseph Stalin

I've never listened to the electric versions and dont intend to either

Paul West

This is the genesis of rock and roll. Without this stuff there would be no Elvis, and therefore no Beatles.

Nat hanael

Rock an roll blows, im so tired of hearing people talk about rock an roll music on various blues players tunes, its annoying a bit, no hate, God bless.

Braulio Cavalcanti

@Paul West his English is OK, his problem is somewhere else, but I wouldn't waste my time trying to find out why some people just can't seem to get it

Robert Johnson

It goes like this. Robert -> Muddy -> Eric clapton. Robert was the acoustic raw raunchy sound, in which people like Muddy and Sonny Boy 2 (who knew Robert) converted to more upbeat electric "50's school dance" blues, which inspired the young white bands at the time to make them sound even more harder, so basically rock and roll.

Bill Williamson

That’s not true. Your statement is purely speculative. You say these things because that is what happened. You speak with hindsight. Something would’ve always filled the void
