Robert Johnson's From Four Till Late Video

This is a clip that seems to be the ending credits for a movie where the Robert Johnson song From Four Till Late is used. There are some images of Johnson and remarks by Eric Clapton and Keith Richards.

Full lyrics to the song From Four Till Late

From four until late I was wringin' my hands and cryin'
From four until late I was wringin' my hands and cryin'

I believe to my soul that your daddy's Gulfport bound

From Memphis to Norfolk is a thirtysix hours' ride
From Memphis to Norfolk is a thirtysix hours' ride

A man is like a prisoner and he's never satisfied

A woman is like a dresser some man always ramblin' th'ough its drawers
A woman is like a dresser some man always ramblin' th'ough its drawers

It cause so many men wear an apron overhall

From four until late she get with a no-good bunch and clown
From four until late she get with a no-good bunch and clown

Now, she won't do nothin' but tear a good man' reputation down

When I leave this town I'm gon' bid you fare....farewell
When I leave this town I'm gon' bid you fare....farewell

And when I return again you'll have a great long story to tell

* Note: It is approximately 800 miles between Memphis and Norfolk.
