The Red Rooster
Howlin' Wolf Lyrics


I have a little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
I have a little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the barnyard
Upset in every way

Oh, the dogs begin to bark and the
Hound begin to howl
Oh, the dogs begin to bark
Hound begin to howl
Oh, watch out, strange-kin people 'cause the
Little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see my little red rooster
Please drag him home
If you see my little red rooster
Please drag him home
There's been no peace in the barnyard
Since the little red rooster been gone

Howlin' Wolf...the master.

Denise Thorne

Brilliant, so deep, so soulful, so rich. You can just feel the little red rooster strutting his stuff, head popping backwards & forwards, pecking & chilling, surrounded by his barnyard ladies. 🤙🏻

My favorite blues singer.

The first time I heard this on the radio on a show called the Blues break I thought it was just wonderful! That slide guitar in the background makes it soo groovable too.

The Red Skyhawk

played this at my dads jam last night. Good times everyone at the bar loved it.

Peter Sutton

Willie Dixon's bass - never intrudes, never underplays, always exactly right for the moment.

Dan Dugan

Howlin’ Wolf’s lead slide guitar(for me)is what steals the show. With that “Cheer’s” from Dundee, Scotland.
