Always keep your hat on. You know back in those days there was quite a lot of jealous guys in the audience and sometimes you have to run. But, If you got your hat on your head and you have to run, you know you left the house with it - Mississippi John Hurt giving advice to Archie Edwards

Sunnyland Slim Lyrics
« on: January 25, 2020, 11:46:33 AM »
Sunnyland Slim - Johnson Machine Gun

Chicago ?, 1947

With Muddy Waters (guitar), Ernest 'Big' Crawford (bass), unknown (drums).

Aristocrat arranged for this session in 1947, and Sunnyland wanted his friend Muddy Waters on the session.  Muddy had a job delivering venetian blinds in Chicago, and when he heard Sunnyland wanted him that afternoon, Muddy told his boss that a cousin had just been stabbed in an allley and that he had to leave for the day.





Yes I feel mistreated boys seem like my time ainít long
Yes I feel mistreated seem like my time ainít long
Because the best friend I had done stole my lover and gone

I'm gonna buy me a Johnson machine gun and a carload of explosion ball
Babe I'm gonna buy me a Johnson machine gun and a carload of explosion ball
Yes I'm gonna be a walking cycloon from Saginaw to the Niagara Fall

Go and bring me my typewriter and a whole round belt of ball
Go and bring me my typewriter and a whole round belt of ball
I'm gonna free my no good woman boy sheís down in the state penitentiary wall

Now little girl the undertaker been here girl I give him your height and size
Yes the undertaker been here darling I give him your height and size
Now if you donít be makin' whoopee with the devil tomorrow this time baby god knows youíll be surprise
