Down In The Bottom
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


Well now, baby meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well now, baby meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well, I'll come out the window, I won't have time to lose.
When you see me streaking by, please don't be late
When you see me streaking by, please don't be late
Well, when you see me moving, though my life is at stake
Well, I hope you'll see me, when I come streaking by
Well, I hope you'll see me, when I come streaking by
She got a bad old man, you know I'm too young to die
I got to leave here. Get caught in there

Well now, baby meet me in the bottom, bring me my running shoes
Well, I'll come out the window, I won't have time to lose.
When you see me streaking by, please don't be late
When you see me streaking by, please don't be late
Well, when you see me moving, though my life is at stake
Well, I hope you'll see me, when I come streaking by
Well, I hope you'll see me, when I come streaking by
She got a bad old man, you know I'm too young to die
I got to leave here. Get caught in there

I've noticed how no one here seems to give him credit for being a very fine guitarist and blues harpist....he was a one man band of the highest caliber. Listen to his slide playing. Masterful.

Katlyn Beninati

He expresses himself from the depths of his soul. Beautiful, personal - definitely vulnerable. This is a rabbit hole few tend to journey.

Miguel Alvarez

People never compliment the teacher you know

Lord Guvner

All he does is as it should be :)

Boney Tony

What guitar did he play?

jeffery warburton

I believe it's because he had a voice that made people shutup and listen for more, unique.

What I love most about Howlin Wolf is that despite all the horrors he lived in his life he never got bitter or turned away from self-criticism for things he might of said or did that he knew was not how God wanted him to live. One of the hardest points I read for me to read was when he made in the music business he went home and tried to help his mother out with some money. She took the money and threw it all over the floor and declared she did not need that devil's money. Man that had to be beyond soul crushing for him.

Such a gift from God and his mother never heard it or understood it.

You Eat Dark Meat

Or maybe his mother was wise of the world.

It doesn’t matter how much different music I listen to, I always come back to Howlin’ Wolf.

Thistle DoNicely

Me too and I’ve seen more bands including Chuck Berry than had hot dinners. The man that started it all for me and gave me a varied musical taste, I always come back to this man. Respect ✊🏼❤️
