Hellhound On My Trail
by Robert Johnson

I got to keep movin', I got to keep movin'
Blues fallin' down like hail, blues fallin' down like hail
Hmmm-mmm, blues fallin' down like hail, blues fallin' down like hail

And the days keeps on worryin' me
There's a hellhound on my trail, hellhound on my trail
Hellhound on my trail

If today was Christmas Eve, if today was Christmas Eve
And tomorrow was Christmas Day
If today was Christmas Eve, and tomorrow was Christmas Day
Aw, wouldn't we have a time, baby?

All I would need my little sweet rider just
To pass the time away, huh-huh
To pass the time away

You sprinkled hot foot powder, mmm
Mmm, around my door, all around my door
You sprinkled hot foot powder
All around your daddy's door, hmm-hmm-hmm

It keep me with ramblin' mind, rider
Every old place I go, every old place I go

I can tell the wind is risin', the leaves tremblin' on the tree
Tremblin' on the tree
I can tell the wind is risin', leaves tremblin' on the tree
Hmm-hmm hmm-mmm

All I need's my little sweet woman
And to keep my company, hey, hey, hey
My company

Isn't creepy that this was the last song he recorded and that it's rumor to be his thoughts of death coming? So haunting but an amazing song

Dr. Green

He knew his time was up because he gave his soul willingly ..

Jacob Johnson

@Billybob Smith it's you


@Dylan Rogers Hot foot powder is what he's talking about. It's a part of hoodoo folk magic that's used to get unwanted people to go away.

Lane Smith

Once you sell you know it’s coming the devil keeps his promise

It really does seriously sound like two people playing, bloody genius he was.

Dr. Green

You are right and wrong it was two playing ... one was not human ..

I have been listening to his music and I just don't understand what people are talking about. All of his music sounds super simplistic and easy for a beginner. It just sounds like a couple of broken strings where string together a few notes at a time. Somebody please explain how this is supposed to be guitar playing that is so good that he had to have sold his soul to the devil inorder to achieve it.

First Last Devil got no rhythm.
