Dust My Broom
Canned Heat Lyrics


I'm goin' get up in the mornin',
I believe I'll dust my broom
I'm goin' get up in the mornin',
I believe I'll dust my broom
Girlfriend, the black man you been lovin', girlfriend, can't get my room

I'm gon' write a letter, telephone every town I know
I'm gon' write a letter, telephone every town I know
If I can't find her in West Helena, she must be in East Monroe I know
I don't want no woman, wants every downtown man she meet
I don't want no woman, wants every downtown man she meet
She's a no good doney, they shouldn't 'low her on the street

I believe, I believe I'll go back home
I believe, I believe I'll go back home
You can mistreat me here, babe, but you can't when I go home

And I'm gettin' up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
I'm gettin' up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
Girlfriend, the black man you been lovin', girlfriend, can't get my room

I'm 'on' call up Chiney, see is my good gal over there
I'm 'on' call up Chiney, see is my good gal over there
If I can't find her on Philippine's Island, she must be in Ethiopia somewhere

Canned heat version…couldn't find these lyrics anywhere, so I transcribed...I think correctly!




Intro

I’m gonna get up in the morning

B’lieve I’ll dust my broom

Gonna get up in the morning

B’lieve I’ll dust my broom

Well I’m tired of telling you

Ain’t got much time to lose




Gonna write a letter

Gonna send a special telegram

Gonna write a letter

Gonna send a special telegram

Gonna find my baby

You know doggone well I am




Well believe

Believe my time ain’t long

I believe

Believe my time ain’t long

You gonna wake up in the morning

Find your good man gone




Breaks




I’m gonna call up China

See if my baby’s over there

Oh, I’m gonna call up China

See if my baby’s over there

Well she’s a fine little woman

She’s in the world somewhere




Break to end

Alan left us too soon. What a shame with all the talent these guys had. RIP in peace ✌ Blind Owl.

Canned Heat were the absolute kings of boogie and blues. Long live The Bear!

Had MR WILSON lived he would have been one of the best (if not the best) blues men on the planet!! He left one heck of a legacy!!

Yes, like Hendrix (& others too soon gone) it would have been really interesting to hear what they would have done in the ensuing years. They’d have had wonderful musical lives, & we may have still had the opportunity to catch them live to this day. Tragic, but great that they were here, albeit so briefly.
