From Four Till Late
Robert Johnson Lyrics


From four till late, I was wringin' my hands and cryin'
From four till late, I was wringin' my hands and cryin'
I believe to my soul, that your daddy's Gulfport-bound

From Memphis to Norfolk, is a thirty-six hours ride
From Memphis to Norfolk, is a thirty-six hours ride
A man is like a prisoner and he's never satisfied

A woman is like a dresser, some man always ramblin' through its drawers
A woman is like a dresser, some man always ramblin' through its drawers
It cause so many men, wear an apron overall

From four till late, she get with a no-good bunch and clown
From four till late, she get with a no-good bunch and clown
Now, she won't do nothin', but tear a good man' reputation down

When I leave this town, I'm gon' bid you fare, farewell
And when I leave this town, I'm gon' bid you fare, farewell
And when I return again, you'll have a great long story to tell

This man was certainly un-worldly. We are so fortunate to have experienced his musical beauty. I put him at number one of all blues creationist. He is the epitome of it all.

that's the face of a dual person, one side that of a driven manic the other a face of a scared fearful boy. and if you care to look close, which side is which.. i don't know.
also the cigarette smoke demon illusion with its wing wrapped around him
is really cool and weird.
is just a bad photo, a deliberate thumb smear by the developer
the devil at the cross road advert backstory
spread a good rumour to sell more product...
it sure did work.
