Sweet Home Chicago
Robert Johnson Lyrics


Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Oh, baby don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago
Now one and one is two
Two and two is four
I'm heavy loaded, baby
I'm booked, I gotta go

Cryin' baby
Honey don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now two and two is four
Four and two is six
You gonna keep monkeyin' round with your friend-boy, you gonna get your
Business all in a trick

But I'm cryin' baby
Honey don't you wanna go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now six and two is eight
Eight and two is ten
Friend-boy, she trick you one time
She sure gonna do it again

But I'm cryin' hey, hey
Baby don't you want to go?
To the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

I'm goin' to California
From there to Des Moines Iowa
Somebody will tell me that you
Need my help someday, cryin'

Hey, hey
Baby don't you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

I can finally respond since the 500th response was deleted :). I am 18 and I love Robert’s music. I was curious to see who Clapton, Zeppelin, and many others were influenced by and found Mr. Johnson and love his music

Derek Raynaud

Musician here, guitar was my first instrument. My first teacher taught me the basics of the blues and I asked “I know this stuff from Stevie ray vaughn, but how far back does blues go?” And here I ended up at 13, 10 years later these songs hold a nostalgic quality in the vintage cracks and the memories of the days I played really basic improvised “solos” trying to stay in the key

People who haven't played a Robert Johnson song on guitar have no idea how difficult it is to actually play.

Steven Reed

Never even tried cause I'm scared to lol. That man was a true genius

R A A Provenzano

The rundown isnt even as hard as it is to play chords, silence and chuck the 6th string, sing and stomp your foot at once!

Ritchie

Facts. I think this is on of his simpler songs along with having a good friend song.
