If I Had Possession Over Judgement Day
Robert Johnson Lyrics


If I had possession, over judgment day
If I had possession, over judgment day
Lord, the little woman I'm lovin' wouldn't, have no right to pray

And I went to the mountain, lookin' as far as my eyes could see
And I went to the mountain, lookin' as far as my eyes would see
Some other man got my woman, and these lonesome blues got me

And I rolled and I tumbled and I, cried the whole night long
And I rolled and I tumbled and I, cried the whole night long
Boy, I woke up this mornin', my biscuit roller gone

Had to fold my arms and I, slowly walked away
(spoken: I didn't like the way she done)
Had to fold my arms and I, slowly walked away
I said in my mind, "Yo' trouble gon' come some day one"

Now run here, baby, set down on my knee
Now run here, baby, set down on my knee
I wanna tell you all about the way they treated me

If I had possession over Judgement Day
If I had possession over Judgment Day
Lord, the little woman I'm lovin' wouldn't have no right to pray
And I went to the mountain lookin' far as my eyes could see
And I went to the mountain lookin' far as my eyes could see
Some other man got my woman and the lonesome blues got me
And I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long
And I rolled and I tumbled and I cried the whole night long
Boy, I woke up this mornin' my biscuit roller gone
Had to fold my arms and I slowly walked away
I didn't like the way she'd run
Had to fold my arms and I slowly walked away
I said in my mind, "You're trouble gone come someday"
Now run here, baby set down on my knee
Now run here, baby set down on my knee
I wanna tell you all about the way they treated me

This song hits me dude...really hits me.

Likewise!!! It's even more powerful slowed down.

I’m still trying to wrap my mind around how the hell he makes it sound like a piano at 2:17 . I understand that you have to play is near the hole. But as a guitarist, I don’t get how he can quickly and cleanly make it sound like that. People talk about how he sold his soul for this skill set. These are the little things that he got out of it.

The Light Rhyder

The piano is a stringed instrument.

- XxJimmyPagexX -

He’s using a slide on the high strings on the frets closer to the body of the guitar.

Joshua Smale

think about 12 on e. or even the strings between tuning and neck?
