Bring It on Home
Sonny Boy Williamson II Lyrics


Baby, baby
I'm gonna bring it on home to you

I done bought my ticket, I got my load
Conductor done hollered, "All, aboard"
Take my seat and ride way back
And watch this train move down the track

Baby, baby
I'm gonna bring it on home to you

I think about the good times I once have had
Soul got happy now, my heart got glad
I think about the way you love me too
You can bet your life, I'm comin home to you

I'm goin home
I'm gonna bring it on home, now
I'm gonna bring it on home, now
I'm gonna bring it on home, now
Gonna bring it on home
Bring it on home to you

Black artists copied other black artists

This song is literally being sung by Sonny Boy Williamson 2...he " stole" a whole mans career and did it better!

And people want to complain about Led Zeppeling and Elvis!

The Rolling Stones refused to appear on Shindig! Without Muddy Waters and Howlin Wolf

Led Zeppelin made their own version of this song, that started with 1 minutes of the same lyrics, and R&B sound.
-
Then, it transitioned into a hard rock composition with a jazz overtone, and message about a cheating woman, in which a man is asking her to bring it on home.
-
Led Zeppelin's composition was more disciplined, harmonized, and developed.
-
Led Zepplelin studied R&B, Jazz, and Country Music, from the United States.
-
They incorporated those styles into their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd albums.
-
But, Led Zepplelin created their own style of rock music and basic heavy metal music,
on those albums.
-
The members of Led Zeppelin had more musical education, and talent than Sonny Boy Williamson.
-
So, their musical composition was more complex and developed.
-
Listen to Led Zepplelin's version of Bring it on Home.
You will jump out of your seat, and start moving.

When Zeppelin covers you, you're the shit. Blues legends to rock gods

@Jack I agree, with you. In terms of having their own sound, my take is it came out in full force with Houses of the Holy. Outside of The Crunge, the whole album shows a completely different sound than the first four albums. (Not that those albums are bad) If I am not mistaken, there no indication of plagerism. I feel after this move the albums that followed continued to show their own sound. Although both Physical Graffiti and Presence have reference to blues covers, in addition to early rocker Ritchie Valens; songs like The Rover, Custerd Pie, Kashmir, In the Light, Sick Again, Achillies Last Stand. For Your Life, and even Candy Store Rock are masterpeices. What really amazes me concerning Presence is it's emphasis on heavy rock, but moreover, they prove to do their own blues without help from the early artists. This evident with Tea for Two. To go further, In Through the Outdoor does the same with I'm Gonna Crawl.
I guess it is safe to say I find the band really discovered themselves in the later years. If you listen to their bootlegs in 75 and 77 tours, you can hear them own their own material. Although Page was struggling with his heroin addiction in 77, he had some masterful performances. Listen To This Eddie, bootleg is a good place to start.
You made a great point.

@Brian Boldt they proved they are deserving the credit they got afterwards in songs like STH,Kashmir,Achilles Last Stand.

From what I remember, the original Led Zeppelin II did not credit Dixon as well as the previous album. Rather, the band took credit for reworking the songs. Dixon had every right to sue their asses off, which he won. The entire song is full of Dixon. But as great as they were, Led Zeppelin stole a lot of music and capitalized. Not just from Dixon but from blues artists going back to Robert Johnson. "Sqeeze my lemon till the juice runs down my leg." I don't see him credited. I like a lot of late 60s English bands and their remakes. But Led Zeppelin was not a powerhouse rock band when they first recorded these blues numbers. They were just starting. If anything, the era of blues they recorded early on did not see much profit until the English bands. These early musicians made records with a limited market due to segregation issues and independent labels robbing them of royalties. You had white producers and record exec's putting their name for song writing credits. Total robbery. The main way of making money for the artist depended on stage performances at local clubs. Howlin wolf commented about the Rolling Stones covering his songs and giving him royalties as a great financial opportunity as this was not considered in his time. (My paraphrase). So along comes Led Zeppelin and other bands taking credit for reworking a song. I feel they still have a lot more royalties to pay out. Almost every album has a song that was not theirs. When we call them a power band (and I agree) we have to remember how they got there. If they did not have the early blues, how great would they have become? I tend to be more of a bluea purist especially the early Chicago sound of Dixon, Wolf, Waters, and Little Walter, and later Sonny Boy II. I prefer their style above the English bands and modern bands. This topic is a debatable subject, and I like discussing it.

Wow! These blues singers/players had such an influence in the Brit rock movement. Guys should deserve the credits far more than what money the rockers got. Great music to appreciate.

I believe Led Zeppelin was sued by a Willie Dixon relative for claiming to have written four of Dixon's songs. I believe the money was used to create a museum.
