I Asked for Water
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


Oh, I asked her for water, oh, she brought me gasoline
Oh, I asked her for water, oh, she brought me gasoline
That's the troublingest woman
That I ever seen

Oh, the church bell tollin', oh, the hearse come driving slow
Oh, the church bell tollin', oh, the hearse come driving slow
I hope my baby
Don't leave me no more
Oh, tell me baby, oh, when are you coming back home?
Oh, tell me baby, oh, when are you coming back home?
You know I love you, baby
But you've been gone too long

Stoned Meadow Of Doom

One of his best tracks for sure

Trent Fox

I love this song lol

paul harris

I love the background with the eerie piano and Wolf''s little guitar stabs over the bass. A very atmospheric recording! 

Sergio Leone

@L3TTUC3prey Thank you! Hubert Sumlin doesn't get enough credit in the general music world (outside of blues fans) for his amazing work with The Wolf.

... Sumlin's stabs that is 😉👍

not only is this music timeless, it never gets old, ….for some of us.

I love the hypnotic guitar riff on this cut - everything is perfect. One of my favorite Wolf recordings.
