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

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.

Zeppelin plagiarised alot,their whole first album in fact...but they were still great.Players automatically sound like what they grew up in a steady diet of, it's inevitable.But they were guilty of crediting themselves as songwriters on alot of traditionals and obscure bands work.Going through lawsuits over it

It's Okay

"Nothing new in the universe" is an old saying. We are usually discovering things that already exist even more than we are creating.

There's a big difference between a folk music and a commercialized music industry. RJ was in the generation before male Blues artists made any real money from their music. Muddy Waters, Elmore James, and many others in the next generation did. When money gets involved credit for a song becomes a real thing. Before that who wrote a song didn't matter as much.
I love Zeppelin as a band, but the big problem I have with them is that they knew exactly whose song they were rearranging and re imagining. They also knew there was big money in writing credits, so why give some dead bluesman a writing credit when they could pocket that money instead? The problem is that RJ had a son who was a poor farmer, who could have used a dollar or two. They ripped off Kansas Joe McCoy and his ex-wife Memphis Minnie. Joe was long dead, but Minnie was alive and destitute. They also stole from contemporary artists like Howlin Wolf, but being a great businessman, Wolf got a writing credit on 'Lemon Song' early on.
Compare that to Clapton, who made sure the original artists were officially credited even if they were dead. Some were still alive. Blind Joe Reynolds who wrote 'Outside Woman Blues' was alive. Skip James got a house and his cancer treatments paid for partially from royalties.

@max Pfluhoeft Perfect! Most of these songs were believed to be in the public domain.
