Come on and Go with Me
The Black Keys Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Come on, come on, baby
Come on and go with me
I need love, I need love so bad
Lowdown cryin' shame

Come on, come on, baby
Come on and go with me
I need loving, I need love so bad
It's a lowdown cryin' shame

Come on, come on, babe
Come on and go with me

I'll be good to you baby
You be good to me
We get together, oh yes, we will

Come on, come on baby
Come on and go with me

I ain't lonesome
I ain't lonesome in my heart
Ain't got nobody to call my own





Come on, come on, baby
Come on and go with me

Overall Meaning

The Black Keys' song "Come on and Go with Me" is an upbeat rock-and-roll love song about wanting and needing someone to share life with. In the chorus, the singer pleads with the subject of the song to come with him and give him the love he so desperately craves. The use of repetition in the lines "Come on, come on, baby" and "I need love so bad" emphasizes the urgency of the singer's plea.


The repetition of the phrase "lowdown cryin' shame" adds a layer of desperation and sadness to the song, as if the singer is lamenting his current situation of being alone and without love. The final verse, where the singer states that he is not lonesome but doesn't have anyone to call his own, adds another dimension to the song's meaning. It suggests that the singer is confident in his ability to be happy on his own, but he still yearns for companionship and connection with another person.


Overall, the song's simple lyrics and driving rhythm capture the feeling of longing for love and the desire to share life with someone special.

There is just something about the soul of this group that penetrates the fiber of my being. I sincerely thank you for making this music come to life, and allowing us to hear it.

@Mrader1983

Yes. This feels like coming home broke and tired at sunset, and there is no beer in the fridge, and all the food is rotten but at least you’re alone, and you’ve only got yourself to blame and maybe I’m projecting...
