Robert Johnson

Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer and musician. His landmark recordings from 1936–37 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Johnson's shadowy, poorly documented life and death at age 27 have given rise to much legend, including the Faustian myth that he sold his soul at a crossroads to achieve success. As an itinerant performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime. more »

Beatrice got a phonograph
And it won't say a lonesome word
Beatrice got a phonograph
And it won't say a lonesome word
What evil have I done?
What evil has the poor girl heard?

Beatrice, I love my phonograph
But you broke my windin' chain
Beatrice, I love my phonograph
But you have broke my windin' chain
And you taken my lovin'
And you gave it to your other man

And we played it on the sofa
And we played it side the wall
And we played it on the sofa
And we played it side the wall
But boys, my needles have got rusty
And it will not play at all

Beatrice, I love my phonograph
Mmm, babe, and I'm bound to lose my mind
Beatrice, I love my phonograph
And I'm 'bout to lose my mind
Why don't you bring your clothes back home, baby
And try me one more time

Now my phonograph
Mmm, babe, it won't say a lonesome word
My little phonograph
And it won't say a lonesome word
What evil I have done?
What evil have the poor girl heard?

Now Beatrice
Won't you bring your clothes back home
Now Beatrice
Won't you bring your clothes back home
I wanna wind your little phonograph
Just to hear your little motor moan
