Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Frank Stokes Lyrics

Here are words to Rockin' On the Hill, incorporating suggestions from John and Chris.  Anybody's satisfied when they got a good mind!!

Rockin’ on the Hill - Beale Street Sheiks
Stokes A, Sane D

Now listen baby, I wanna come back home
Hey listen baby, I wanna come back home
Then I’ll tell you what happened baby, since your man’s been gone

Now listen baby, you so good and sweet
Hey listen baby, you so good and sweet
I wanna stay round you if I, have to sleep in the street

Stokes: It’s all right if you TREAT ’em right
(Sane says something like “Keep ’em happy” at the same time.)

Sane: Fiddle it all right boy, fiddle it careful for ’em

Take me back baby and try me one more time
I said take me back, baby try me one more time
And I think I know something that’ll (Bout?) satisfy your mind

Stokes: Rock right, [rock until you can’t set still]
Do the rock until they rock on the hill!

Sane: Say, fiddle like you live, you know how you live, live hard, fiddle hard!

Stokes: Hey rock, church, rock!

Cmon take me back baby, and try me one more time (I like that!)
Take me back baby, try your baby just one more time
And I think I know something’ll satisfy my good gal’s mind

Sane: Anybody’s satisfied when they got a good mind!

Oh lord, lord ….

Country Blues Lyrics / Re: Lightnin' Hopkins Lyrics
« Last post by Lazy John on May 24, 2020, 11:34:53 AM »
I'm brand new here, so forgive me if I chose the wrong topic in which to ask my question.  It relates to Lightnin's "Penitentiary Blues". 

I've looked in vain for guitar transcriptions or tabs for "Penitentiary Blues" or "Prison Blues Come Down on Me".  I find the lyrics so evocative and the guitar playing so mournful that I'd like to try to learn one or both of the tunes.  I've looked online and at published books of blues tabs, blues fingerpicking and blues instruction with no luck.  In fact--at least in my unqualified opinion--it seems that Lightnin' Hopkins gets short shrift in those kinds of books with only a very few of his songs included, if any, despite how prolifically he recorded.

That said, I'm just learning how to play the guitar.  I think the songs would give me a clear goal to work towards (slowly) and also some good examples for when I start exploring fingerpicking.  As well, it will give me something to have my instructor help me learn, instead of having him assign me something of his choosing. 

Any help would be appreciated.

John
