Caldonia
Louis Jordan Lyrics


Walkin' with my baby, she got great big feet
She long, lean and lanky
And ain't had nothing to eat
But she's my baby
And I love her just the same
Crazy 'bout that woman 'cause Caldonia is her name

Caldonia, Caldonia
What make your big head so hard, ma?
I love you, I love you just the same
I always love you, baby, 'cause Caldonia is your name

You know my mama told me to leave Caldonia alone
That's what she told me, no kiddin'
That's what she said
She said, "Son, keep away from that woman, she ain't no good
Don't bother with her"

But mama didn't know what Caldonia was putting down
So I'm going down to Caldonia's house
And ask her just one more time

Caldonia, Caldonia
What makes your big head so hard, ma?

I played bass with Louis the last year of his life, and he was wailin'! We did a show in New Orleans that ran for 6 months with Wallace Davenport (Ray Charles, Count Basie) on trumpet. What a fine gentleman he was! Great to work for personally, and the musical experience goes without saying.

Do you know the Drummers name in this Clip ?

Caldonia was the very FIRST song to be called “Rock & Roll”!

Alejandro Cabal

@Viva el Rock & Eddy! Thats Jump Blues or Boogie Woogie, the real name for Rock n Roll. We got many other artists in the genren such as Big Joe Turner.

Tony AR

@graphicsRat A movie was made about Little Richard in the early '00s starring the actor LEON he also played in the '90s film The Five Heartbeats

Dwight Love

@graphicsRat The wailing that you heard was a obvious GOSPEL INFLUENCE from Little Richard

Dwight Love

@graphicsRat You know there are ppl who still accept the lie known as Elvis Presley being the driving force behind the creation of the music we are talking about right now.Never once had he wrote a song for himself or another artist of his era.
