I Believe I'll Dust My Broom
Robert Johnson Lyrics


I'm goin' get up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
I'm goin' get up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
Girlfriend, the black man you been lovin', girlfriend, can get my room

I'm gon' write a letter, telephone every town I know
I'm gon' write a letter, telephone every town I know
If I can't find her in West Helena, she must be in East Monroe, I know

I don't want no woman, wants every downtown man she meet
I don't want no woman, wants every downtown man she meet
She's a no-good honey, they shouldn't allow her on the street

I believe, I believe I'll go back home
I believe, I believe I'll go back home
You can mistreat me here, babe, but you can't when I go home

And I'm gettin' up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
I'm gettin' up in the mornin', I believe I'll dust my broom
Girlfriend, the black man you been lovin', girlfriend, can get my room

I'm gonna call up Chiney, see if my good girl over there
I'm gonna call up China, see if my good girl over there
If I can't find her on Philippine's island, she must be in Ethiopia somewhere

I wonder if Robert Johnson ever thought his music would be listened to on a computer 80 years later by a PasteyWhite kid in his bedroom.

Sam Shelton

Rose up from poverty and suffering to change the world of music. This Mans impact was so significant that the, so-called, " deal with the devil" myth was born. Listen, the original truth teller.

Short answer. No.

Jon Snyder

Was this 'puter you talkin 'bout now?

Devil told him all about it, he thought that sounded pretty hilarious

Recia Plunkett

He had his priorities straight as all the other blues guys did I guess

Gotta love Robert Johnson. When people leave him out of the 27 club I get mad

Macey Hughes

@Klayton Von Kluge Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Al Wilson from canned heat, jean micheal basquiat, but Robert Johnson was the original guy

Terry Gafford

I dunno ....... on every documentary I've ever seen he always takes his rightful place in that said club

Christopher Cusack

Don't worry rat, it was a joke, after a large amount of drinking. Plop.
