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 »

Betty Mae, Betty Mae, you shall be my wife someday
Betty Mae, Betty Mae, you shall be my wife someday
I wants a little sweet girl, that will do anything that I say

Betty Mae, you is my heartstring, you is my destiny
Betty Mae, you my heartstring, you is my destiny
And you rolls across my mind, baby, each and every day

Lil' girl, lil' girl, my life seem so misery
Hmm-hmm, little girl, my life seem so misery
Baby, I guess it must be love, now, hoo, Lord, that's takin' effect on me

Some day I will return, with the marriage license in my hand
Some day I will return, hoo, with a marriage license in my hand
I'm gon' take you for a honeymoon, in some long, long distant land
