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 »

Oh baby don't you want to go
Oh baby don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Oh baby don't you want to go
Oh baby don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now one and one is two
Two and two is four
I'm heavy loaded baby
I'm booked I gotta go

Cryin' baby
Honey don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now two and two is four
Four and two is six
You gonna keep monkeyin' round here friend-boy
You gonna get your business all in a trick

But I'm cryin' baby
Honey don't you wanna go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

Now six and two is eight
Eight and two is ten
Friend-boy she trick you one time
She sure gonna do it again

But I'm cryin' hey hey
Baby don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago

I'm goin' to California
From there to Des Moines Iowa
Somebody will tell me that you
Need my help someday

Cryin hey hey
Baby don't you want to go
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago
