How Many More Years
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


How many more years?
Have I got to let you dog me around
How many more years?
Does I got to let you dog me around
I'd soon rather be dead
Sleeping six feet in the ground

I'm gonna fall on my knees
I'm gonna raise up my right hand
I'm gonna fall on my knees
I'm gonna raise up my right hand
Said, I'd feel much better, darlin'
If you'd just only understand

I'm goin' upstairs
I'm gonna bring back down my clothes
I'm goin' upstairs
I'm gonna bring back down my clothes, get them all
If anybody ask about me
Just tell 'em I walked out on

HAZ LA SIMPLE con Isaac Montoya Chirieleison

"Mucha gente se anda preguntando, ¿qué es los Blues?.
Escucho a mucha gente decir: "los Blues, los Blues".
Pero voy a decirles lo que el Blues es.
Cuando no tienes dinero, tienes los Blues.
Cuando no tienes dinero para pagar la renta de tu hogar, sigues teniendo los Blues.

Mucha gente comenta, "'¡no me gusta el Blues!",
pero cuando no tienes dinero, 
y no puedes pagar la renta de tu casa,
y no puedes comprar comida, 
es CONDENADAMENTE SEGURO que tienes los Blues (you damn sure got the Blues!).

Si no tienes dinero, tienes los Blues, porque estas pensando con maldad. Es cierto, porque cada vez que piensas con maldad, estas pensando acerca del Blues.

Estamos hablando de la vida del ser humano, y como vivir."

Howlin' Wolf - How Many More Years

En vivo desde el Newport Blues Festival (1966). Banda: Little Hubert Sumlin (guitarra), Andrew "Blueblood" McMahon (bajo), J.T. Brown (saxofón), S.P. Leary (batería).

I fall on my knees, and baby I raise up my right hand
I might not do it for you !
I fall on my knees and I raise up my right hand
I'd feel better, If you understand,
U won’t listen to me!

Instrumental

U go make me goin' upstairs in a moment
I'm gonna bring back down my clothes
I am quit you!
I'm gonna upstairs, I'm gonna bring back down my clothes
She said U get them all!
If anybody ask about me
Are You tell 'em I walked out on,
I go upstairs I'm gonna bring back down my clothes 2X
If anybody ask about me
Are You tell 'em I walked out on, The budy is gone !

Instrumental

I ve been a fool, U cant believe what I felt.
I ve been up babe, And U cant believe what I say
U want set up crazy
And U just want to have your way
And U cant do that to me

Instrumental

No one has ever improved on this sound. The Wolf has been dead over forty years, and there is still nothing better.

@Hombre ruso de 40 años Led Zeppelin got a lot of inspiration from this guy. They're both legends.

This is such an incredible live performance. The entire ensemble plays loosely, and swings, just shuffling along, an almost casual shuffling into each note or phrase, but never sounding sloppy,  It's as though the loose interpretive style of the solo acoustic players; just themselves and a guitar, John Lee Hooker, Bukka White, Son House, has been worked into the playing of this larger group.  It's as though each member of Howlin' Wolf's band has separately absorbed this loose acoustic solo artist style, and then when they play together, they play the same way in this group format, but certainly listen to each other.  The result is this loose, shuffling along instrumental accompanyment that swings.  Not to ignore Howlin' Wolf - I don't think he ever cut a bad record.  His voice is blues, ringing with deep emotional soul - can't explain it, you just feel it in your bones.  You all know what I mean.  Hail to the Wolf!!

“When you ain’t got no money- you’ve got the Blues. When you ain’t got no money to pay your house rent, you’ve still got the Blues. Alot of people holler “I don’t like no Blues”, but when you ain’t got no money, and you can’t pay your house rent, and can’t buy no food, you damn sure got the Blues!” Howlin’ Wolf
