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 »

I'm a drunken-hearted man, my life seems so misery
I'm a poor drunken-hearted man, my life seems so misery
And if I could only change my way of livin', it would mean so much to me

I been dogged and I been driven ever since I left my mother's home
I been dogged and I been driven ever since I left my mother's home
And I can't see the reason why, that I can't leave these no-good women's alone

My poor father died and left me, my poor mother done the best that she could
My poor father died and left me, my poor mother done the best that she could
Every man love that game you call love, but it don't mean no man no good

I'm the poor drunken-hearted man and sin was the cause of it all
I'm the poor drunken-hearted man, and sin was the cause of it all
But the day that you get weak for no-good women, that's the day that you surely fall
