Traveling Riverside Blues
Robert Johnson Lyrics


If your man get personal, want to have your fun
If your man get personal, want to have your fun
Best come on back to Friar's Point, mama, barrelhouse all night long

I got women's in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee
I got women's in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee
But my Friar's Point rider, now, hops all over me

I ain't gon' to state no color but her front teeth crowned with gold
I ain't gon' to state no color but her front teeth is crowned with gold
She got a mortgage on my body, now, layin' on my soul

Lord, I'm goin' to Rosedale, gon' take my rider by my side
Lord, I'm goin' to Rosedale, gon' take my rider by my side
We can still barrelhouse baby, on the riverside

Now you can squeeze my lemon 'til the juice run down my
'Til the juice rune down my leg, baby, you know what I'm talkin' about
You can squeeze my lemon 'til the juice run down my leg
That's what I'm talkin' 'bout, now
But I'm goin' back to Friar's Point, if I be rockin'to my head

If your man get personal, want to have your fun

I got women's in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee

I ain't gon' to state no color but her front teeth crowned with gold
I ain't gon' to state no color but her front teeth is crowned with gold
She got a mortgage on my body, now, layin' on my soul
Lord, I'm goin' to Rosedale, gon' take my rider by my side
Lord, I'm goin' to Rosedale, gon' take my rider by my side

Just come on back to Friar's Point, mama, and barrelhouse all night long
I got womens in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee
I got womens in Vicksburg, clean on into Tennessee
But my Friar's Point rider, now, hops all over me
I ain't gon' to state no color, but her front teeth is crowned with gold
I ain't gon' to state no color, but her front teeth is crowned with gold
She got a mortgage on my body, now, lien on my soul
Lord, I'm goin' to Rosedale, gon' take my rider by my side
Lord, I'm goin' to Rosedale, gon' take my rider by my side
We can still barrelhouse, baby, 'cause it's on the river side

"A sad loss" is something said about pretty much every artist who passes, but it was never so true as with Robert Johnson. One album from such a talent just seems so unfair. I guess we have to be satisfied with the fact that he influenced ...Hmm, let's see. Oh yeah, everybody!

Sam Kiani

Beautiful! Speed it up, add an electric guitar and the best drummer of all time and you have Led Zeppelin! Both versions are amazing!

TheTomislavko

every song he made became an instant classic all 29 of them

Lmao um.. what?😂 I always felt like nobody truly appreciated the blues until the early 60s thanks to Columbia records🤔

zep73

Thank you Robert! We are forever grateful!

The lyrics, tho...guy had it goin'.

This must be the source of the riff used in Rollin and Tumblin by Cream and some other blues rock bands. However Cream also took the line 'Going down to Rosedale ...' and stuck it in Crossroads. The 'squeeze my lemon' bit is also in this song, recycled by Led Zep. Somebody should make a master chart showing how riffs and phrases link among the various recordings over time. 

Professor Nadim Salhab

Actually " squeeze my lemon" also features in " I can't quit you babe"

That’s kinda impossible. Nobody knows where it started from. Some people say everything started from the blues from the 1920s and some people say blues stole from the musicians who existed atleast a 30-40 years before them and it keeps going on and on. I’ve myself become tired doing a research on this topic and finally decided to just enjoy the music what so ever.
