When You Got a Good Friend
Robert Johnson Lyrics


When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
Give her all of your spare time, love and treat her right

I mistreated my baby, and I can't see no reason why
I mistreated my baby, but I can't see no reason why
Every time I think about it, I just wring my hands and cry

Wonder could I to bear apologize, or would she sympathize with me?
Mmm-mmm-mmm, would she sympathize with me?
She's a brown-skin woman, just as sweet as a girlfriend can be

Mmm-mmm, babe, I may be right or wrong
Baby, it's your opinion, oh, I may be right or wrong
Watch your close friend, baby, then your enemies can't do you no harm

When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
When you got a good friend, that will stay right by your side
Give her all of your spare time, love and treat her right

why is it when people talk about blues/soul/gospel...people are always trying to prove that whites can do it too? I'm black and i dont think a blues singer/musician sucks because they are white...i think they stink if they have no soul. I've seen black american gospel choirs cheer on european gospel choirs...both good. just different types of voices. Most great black soul and blues artists have played with Amazing white artists...because music is UNIVERSAL.

White people and black people helped make the blues, even music! That's what it is, that's what music is all about

This cat invented the riff you hear now with the fifths, which became the staple for all rock and roll rhythm -- from Chuck Berry to the Beatles. That's why he's so important, and called the Father of the Blues (should really be called the Godfather of Rock and Roll). Not to mention no one had a voice like his, with its haunted microtones and soul-piercing cries. And his guitar playing? Just like his voice: unable to be imitated. You can get close, but that's all. The best efforts from the greatest modern guitarists will always produce inferior results in comparison with the original. That's why he is hailed as a genius and shrouded in demonic legend. How the hell did he do it?
