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.

Riki Newton

I believe that thought was well beyond his remit - he tended to live in the moment and thankfully he had no damn computer or smart phone to endlessly distract him from his music. Great 👍 musician and beautiful blues guitarist. RIP RJ.

Home At Last

Wonder no more --- I can tell you definitively that he did not.

darth J_der

Yes. Thats exactly what he sold his soul for.

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

Nat hanael

I'd rather him not be in that club, I hope that all that devil stuff with him wasn't true, roberts last words was " I pray my redeemer takes me out of my grave " so hopefully he really did just learn from Ike Zimmerman.

@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
