Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Mississippi Fred McDowell Lyrics


Good mornin', little schoolgirl
Good mornin', little schoolgirl
Can I go?
Can I go home wit' you?
Tell yo' mama an yo' papa
Lord, I'm a li'l schoolboy, too

Come on, be my baby
Come on, be my baby
I'll buy you a diamond
I'll buy you a diamond ring
If you don't like that, baby
I ain't gon' buy ya a doggone thing

I don't know, hardly
I don't know, hardly
What in this world
What in this world to do
I don't mean to hurt yo' feelings
Or even get mad with you

I 'member way back, babe
I 'member way back, babe
When I was young age
When I was young, age-a nine
Lord, I thinkin' about my schoolday
It sho' did worry on my mind.

I don't know how old this version is but a thousand years from now it will still be stomping everyone's ass into the ground.

@Chip Musick If they bring the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival back like they are planning in October, there should be a good collection of new and old bluesmen coming in. The Blues Tent is the place to be when that happens. The line ups should be out this summer.

@1blastman Nice to chat with somebody who knows what the hell he's talking about....love Delta Blues!!!!!!!

@Chip Musick I had followed McDowell and other Delta bluesmen - Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Skip James, Mississippi John Hurt for years before the British Blues Invasion broke out TYA was the second wave of the blues invasion following the Stones, John Mayall, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac, and Clapton with the Yardbirds.
Alvin Lee could wail on guitar, but I really liked a lot of the
jazz stuff he did early on like Woody Herman's Woodchopper's Ball.
Rock in Peace - Alvin Lee

@1blastman Ha!...Love it....saw TYA several times in the easly 70s in Honolulu and they were si damm good. They came out to pkay encore and someone tossed a lei that went around Alvin Lee's guitar neck and he got mad and ripped it off and it tore all to hell and got tangled up in his guitar strings and deadened the strings. He slammed that Gibson bout haif way across the stage into his amp and stormed off stage and never came back..guitar was still squealing out feedback and everything else it could 25 minutes later when I finally ledt the building (right behind Elvis)! Good times. Thanks friend, Peace and stay safe and God bless Mississippi Fred McDowell and you and yours.

@Chip Musick The Yardbirds and most notably Ten Years After covered this in the 60's. Saw TYA do this at the Fillmore and was the most lechereous version that I ever could've imagined at the time. The closest to it was the Stones "Stray Cat Blues" .
