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
If your man get personal, want to have your fun

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

"you can squeeze my lemons till the juice run down my leg"

@Greg Hoppe just like Shave Em Dry by Lucille Bocan.

Joelle Benoit

Typical blues double meanings!

Greg Hoppe

This lyric was the main reason this song wasn't released to the public in the late 1930's.

Massimo Lazzari

I wonder if you know what I'm talkin' about... (Robert Plant)

I was really hating on zeppelin for awhile, till I realized every artist is stealing something in every song-whether they know it or not.

@Strummin Fuel Kids that bought this album, yeah right.. I first heard it on a bootleg LP I got in the late 80's. Paid $40 for it
