They're Red Hot
Robert Johnson Lyrics


Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
I got a girl, say she long and tall
She sleeps in the kitchen with her feets in the hall
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale, I mean
Yes, she got'em for sale, yeah

Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
She got two for a nickel, got four for a dime
Would sell you more, but they ain't none of mine
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale, I mean
Yes, she got'em for sale, yes, yeah

Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
I got a letter from a girl in the room
Now she got something good she got to bring home soon, now
It's hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got em for sale, I mean
Yes, she got'em for sale, yeah

Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got em for sale
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got em for sale (they're too hot boy)
The billy got back in a bumble bee nest
Ever since that he can't take his rest, yeah
Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes you got'em for sale, I mean
Yes, she got'em for sale

Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale
Man don't mess around em hot tamales now 'cause they too black bad,
If you mess around 'em hot tamales

Hot tamales 'cause they red hot, yes they got em for sale, I mean
Yes, she got em for sale, yeah

Hot tamales and they're red hot, yes she got'em for sale

Le diable et moi
On marchait côte à côte
Près de l'autoroute
Pour que mon esprit démoniaque
Prenne le bus et parte au loin.

Il y a des choses
Qu'on n'est pas censés comprendre.
Robert Johnson avait un talent incroyable, un don, mais qu'il souffrait d'un déséquilibre.
On l'entend dans sa musique.
Quelque chose ne tournait pas rond dans la vie de Robert Johnson et c'étais le cas pour jimi Hendrix, pour Kurt Cobain et tous ceux du club des 27.



Agent Smith

Had to "google translate" that action:
The devil and me
We walked side by side
Near the highway
For my demonic spirit
Take the bus and leave in the distance.


There are things
That we are not supposed to understand.
Robert Johnson had an incredible talent, a gift, but he was suffering from an imbalance.
We hear him in his music.
Something was wrong in the life of Robert Johnson and it was the case for Jim Hendrix, for Kurt Cobain and everyone in the club of 27.

Just watched the new Netflix documentary about Robert.
Made me appreciate his work even more.. AMAZING.

nineballer99

Don't know his history, but it would have to be really bad to beat Blind Willie McTell's (Statesboro Blues) hard luck story.

Tria

The "documentary" was pretty shit in my opinion. It was about 50 minutes long and essentially all they said was two or three things that wasn't already in the liner notes of vol 1 and 2 of king of the blues singers. I regret watching it. I appreciated being able to hear the single memory his son had of him but it was a waste of time overall.

Maggot brain

I know right

Freedom Ring

Topcat when his first wife died her parents blamed him and said it was because he played the devils music, he was also talking guitar less from a man from another town and they would practice in a graveyard his teacher said no one would complain out her, people seen them practice out there and assumed the worst be he didn’t sale his soul .

Nicki Here

Steven Black thank you so much! My boyfriend is obsessed with Robert Johnson but he dislikes that Netflix doc, he says it seems like it was stitched together quick and made just for a buck. I will check out the Amazon Prime one, thanks again!

This prematurely initiated every form music inspiration to every genre rather people see fit or not denying it is just foolish. Thank you Robert Johnson and Mississippi and Chicago.

@ Deep space pilot
Inspiration always comes from somewhere in this case “Blind lemon Jefferson”, “ Blind Blake”,
and Alonso “Lonnie” Johnson…

deepspacepilot

Read the Wikipedia article on him and learn about who he borrowed things from.

Aubrey Holman

I agree. That's the earliest form of Hip Hop I've ever heard at 1:30.
