R.L. Burnside

R. L. Burnside (November 23, 1926 – September 1, 2005) was an American blues singer, songwriter and guitarist. He played music for much of his life but received little recognition before the early 1990s. In the latter half of that decade, Burnside recorded and toured with Jon Spencer, garnering crossover appeal and introducing his music to a new fan base in the punk and garage rock scenes. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Well, my mama, she didn't 'low me just to stay out all night long, oh, Lord
Well, my mama didn't 'low me just to stay out all night long
I didn't care what she didn't 'low
I would boogie-woogie anyhow
When I first came to town, people, I was walkin' down Hastings Street
Everybody was talkin' about the Henry Swing Club
I decided I drop in there that night
When I got there, I say, "yes, people"
They was really havin' a ball
Yes, I know
Boogie Chillen'
One night I was layin' down
I heard mama and papa talkin'
I heard papa tell mama, "let that boy boogie-woogie
It's in him and it got to come out"
And I felt so good
Went on boogiein' just the same
