Come on in (ain't nobody here) - Harum Scarums
« on: February 17, 2012, 02:26:02 PM »
Dear Weenies !
I just tried to figure out, what the exact lyrics for Come on in (ain't nobody here) by Harum Scarum are. This song is included on the (excellent) 2012 Blues Images Calendar CD. Since i'm not a native speaker, I couldn't find out all the words. Here is my first try, and here is "Come On In":



Come On In (Ain't Nobody Here) by Harum Scarum


Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Oh, sit right down and let's have some fun
my wife's gone out on an all night run
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me

Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Take this take some of that
take anything is the doggone flat
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me

Solo

Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
I'll fry some meat, cook some bread
If you get sleepy, there's a great big bed
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me

Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Take this liquor, drink this wine
Let's get drunk, an' have one good time
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me

Solo

Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Take off your shirt, hang it on the chair
Take off your socks and give your feet some air
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me

Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me
I'm drunk and disorderly, I don't care
If you want to you can pull off your underwear
Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me


all the best !
Mr. Jelly Roll

Some suggestions:

"Take off your shirt, hang it on the chair,
Take off your socks and give your feet some air..."

And I believe I've seen this line quoted here (perhaps by Uncle Bud?) as something like this:

"I'm drunk and disorderly, I don't care,
If you want, you can pull off your underwear..." 

Cheers

Pan

Thank you Pan. I think your suggestions sound quite correct !
Listen to the bad ass licks from Broonzy. He was a genius I think. He played only with his bare fingers without picks etc. and he is quite as loud as the piano on his acoustic guitar. A Helluva picker.

thanks again  :),

I have a few suggestions:

Quote
Come on in, ain't nobody here but me

I think you're missing a 'there' in this line each time;

Come on in, there ain't nobody here but me

Quote
Step right down and let's have some fun (?)

Oh sit (pronounced 'set') right down and let's have some fun

Quote
I search some meat, cook some bread (?)

I'll fry some meat, cook some bread

Quote
Let's get drunk, have a wonderful time

Let's get drunk, have a wild(?) good time

The word starting with 'w' has two syllables, could be 'rather' mispronounced 'wather' maybe

There's a few pickup 'Ohs...' and 'Aws...' in there too if we're gonna be strickly accurate, which we always try to be!

Done: http://weeniecampbell.com/wiki/index.php?title=Come_On_In_(Ain%27t_Nobody_Here_But_Me)

I corrected one typo,

take anything is the doggone flat

Should be :

take anything in the doggone flat
