Hustled Down in Texas
Johnny Winter Lyrics


You know I hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too
Well! hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too
You know wouldn't nobody let me do what I want to do

You know I travel 'round in Georgia, I made the southern scene
I traveled 'round in Georgia, I made the southern scene
Just trying to find somebody, a friend who's deal was clean

Use me for your fool, sign on the dotted line
Don't ask questions, stupid, 'cause your southern can is mine
Hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too, wouldn't nobody let me do what I want to do

Ah baby, don't try jiving me no more
Ah baby baby, don't try jiving no more
'Cause I'm hip to your jiving, down the road I go

Listen to me people, try to understand, can't get good from evil, so do the best you can
I want to tell you people, please try to understand,
You know you can't get good from evil so do the best you can

You know I hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too
Yeah, hustled down in Texas, went to Chicago too,
Wouldn't nobody let me do what I want to do

Anybody  catch the cough at 1:22?

@Sheltyjo Hill  I remember that cough,  Or maybe I'm thinkin' of a Jimi Hendrix cough or a John Lennon one.  I have owned this album on vinyl a few times and on C.D, a few times, too.  It's the only one you really must have, of his but I also like the one with "Hey You" on it, his white album.

too much listening to this genius and other distractions made me lose my focus in university. No degree.. matters not, made a living, now retiring, and saw Johnny live 4 times. and saw Edgar perform live on the casino circuit. My son plays guitar, was in a band. cheers Johnny, gone but not forgotten.
