Blues Song In The Spotlight: Robert Johnson - From Four Till Late



Lyrics:

From four till late
I was wringin my hands and cryin

From four till 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 thirty six hour ride

From Memphis to Norfolk
is a thirty six hour ride

A mans like a prisoner
and he's never satisfied

A woman is like a dresser
some man is always ramblin through its drawers

A woman is like a dresser
some man is always ramblin through its drawers

It cause so many men
wear an apron overhaul

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 mans reputation down

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

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

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