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 »

Tell me, milkcow, what on earth is wrong with you?
Hoo, milkcow, what on earth is wrong with you?
Now, you have a little new calf, hoo, and your milk is turnin' blue

Now, your calf is hungry, and I believe he needs a suck
Now, your calf is hungry, hoo, I believe he needs a suck
But your milk is turnin' blue, hoo, I believe he's outta luck

Now, I feel like milkin' and my, cow won't come
I feel like shootin' and my milk won't turn, I'm cryin' please
Please don't do me wrong
If you see my old milkcow, baby now, hoo, drive her home

My milkcow been ramblin', hoo, for miles around
My milkcow been ramblin', hoo, for miles around
Well, now she in trouble with some other man bull cow, hoo, in this strange man's town
