Good Morning School Girl
Sonny Boy Williamson Lyrics

Hello, little school girl
Good morning, little school girl
Can I go home with you?
Can I go home, later wit' you?

Now, you can tell yo' mother an' yo' father, mm
That Sonny Boy's a little school boy, too

I woke up this morning
I woke up this morning
Lord, and I couldn't make me no
Lord, I couldn't make me, no town

Well, said I didn't have no blues, woman
But I was all messed up, anyhow

Now, you be my baby, mm
Come on an' be my baby, mm
I'll buy you a diamond
I'll buy you a diamond ring

Well, if you don't be my little woman
Then I won't buy you a doggone thing

I'm gonna buy me a airplane
I'm gonna buy me a airplane
I'm gonna fly all over this land
I'm gonna fly all over this land's town

Don't find the woman that I'm lovin'
Then I ain't goin' to let my airplane down

I do no hollerin'
I do no hollerin'
Baby, what in this world I'm gonna do
Baby, what in this world I'm gonna do

Well, that I don't want never hurt yo' feelin'
Or either get mad at you

Williamson's final recording session took place in Chicago in December 1947, in which he accompanied Big Joe Williams. On June 1, 1948, Williamson was killed in a robbery on Chicago's South Side as he walked home from a performance at the Plantation Club, at 31st St. and Giles Avenue, a tavern just a block and a half from his home, at 3226 S. Giles. Williamson's final words are reported to have been "Lord have mercy".

Williamson is buried at the former site of the Blairs Chapel Church, southwest of Jackson, Tennessee. In 1991, a red granite marker was purchased by fans and family to mark the site of his burial. A Tennessee historical marker, also placed in 1991, indicates the place of his birth and describes his influence on blues music. The historical marker is located south of Jackson on Tennessee State Highway 18, at the corner of Caldwell Road.


His legacy has been somewhat overshadowed in the postwar blues era by the popularity of the musician who appropriated his name, Rice Miller, who after Williamson's death went on to record many popular blues songs for Chicago's Checker Records and others and toured Europe several times during the blues revival in the 1960s. The recordings made by Williamson between 1937 and his death in 1948 and those made later by Rice Miller were all originally issued under the name Sonny Boy Williamson. It is believed that Miller adopted the name to deceive audiences (and his first record label) into thinking that he was the "original" Sonny Boy.[3] In order to differentiate between the two musicians, many later scholars and biographers have referred to John Lee Williamson (1914–1948) as Sonny Boy Williamson I and Miller (c. 1912–1965) as Sonny Boy Williamson II.

To add to the confusion, around 1940 the jazz pianist and singer Enoch Williams recorded for Decca under the name Sonny Boy Williams and in 1947 as Sunny Boy in the Sunny Boy Trio.

Rice Miller aka Sonny Boy Williamson II must be laughing in his grave watching this dedication video to John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson with his picture first appearing in the video! Great song! Big Joe Williams & Robert Nighthawk on guitars in this recording which appeared in 1937.

Sure didn't help me in my search for the original Sonny Boy Williamson, since all I had to go by were their faces (and the fact the First died young.) The First very handsome, the 2nd gnarly nose and no front teef., uh, teeth. Ok on with the search.

Usual error in showing a picture of Rice Miller and not John Lee Williamson. "When will they ever learn?"

He was teaching a teenaged Billy Boy Arnold how to play before he was killed...Arnold lived down the street from Sonny Boy and had only recently summoned up the courage to knock on Sonny Boy's door to ask him for lessons
