Stop Breakin' Down Blues
Robert Johnson Lyrics


Every time I'm walkin' down the streets
Some pretty mama starts breakin' down with me
Stop breakin' down, yes stop breakin' down
The stuff I got'll bust your brains out, baby
Ooh, it'll make you lose your mind

I can't walk the streets now, can't consolate my mind
Some no-good woman she starts breakin' down
Stop breakin' down, please stop breakin' down
The stuff I got gonna bust your brains out
Ooh, it'll make you lose your mind

Now, you Saturday night womens, you love to ape and clown
You won't do nothin' but tear a good man reputation down
Stop breakin' down, please stop breakin' down
The stuff I got'll bust your brains out, baby
Ooh, it'll make you lose your mind

Now, I give my baby, now the ninety-nine degree
She jumped up and throwed a pistol down on me
Stop breakin' down, please stop breakin' down
Stuff I got'll bust your brains out, baby
Ooh, it'll make you lose your mind

I can't start walkin' down the streets
But my pretty mama don't start breakin' down with me
Stop breakin' down, yeah stop breakin' down
The stuff I got'll bust your brains out, baby
Ooh, it'll make you lose your mind

This man was barely appreciated or recognized in his own time. He definitely had no idea that he would end up becoming one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.

I listened to this stuff as a kid in the 80's my dad had a couple old albums. most people don't understand the influence this guy alone had on all modern music. Mick Jagger prayed to him every show. I just remember at some point in my life I was really down and broke, I would sit there and listen to Robert Johnson, and that was all I needed, eventually things got better, but always remember he used his music to talk to your soul, it will get you through just like a prayer, I can listen to it anytime and I love it. I love that old music. Fred McDowell, Lonnie Jhonson it's all great. Timeless did one thing, took a lot of you guys back in time, when music was masterfully crafted, where subtle nuances took you to another universe.

Big fan of the Rolling Stones and listening to the Original version it's priceless. Thanks!

Marcus Clements

@Willie Quixote My thoughts exactly. But then you realise that the internet is populated by pricks that think you need to hear every thought that rattles around in their empty skulls.

@Emm Pedno Nothing to do with believing TV is real, TV shows often do 'easter eggs' like that.
