LUTHER ALLISON : LITTLE RED ROOSTER / LUTHER’S BLUES

Ο σπουδαίος κιθαρίστας & τραγουδιστής των blues Luther Allison, από την περίοδο που ηχογραφούσε για τη Motown. Ακούμε την εκδοχή του σ’ ένα πολυακουσμένο τραγούδι του Willie Dixon. Και στη συνέχεια το εμβληματικό, δικό του “Luther’s Blues”.

Here’s the great blues guitar player & singer
Luther Allison, from the time he was recording for Motown. We hear his version of a very popular Willie Dixon’s song. And then his own, emblematic “Luther’s Blues”.

I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
Keep everything in the farm yard upset in every way
The dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Watch out strange cat people
Little red rooster’s on the prowl
If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
I had no peace in the farm yard
Since my little red rooster’s been gone

Well, my mama called me Luther
And my daddy calls me son
Yes, my mother called me Luther
And my daddy calls me son
Yes, you know my woman called me a fool
And you know she’s the only one
Yes, I don’t know why she treat me so bad
You know I’ve been so sweet and kind
Yeah, I don’t know why you wanna treat me so bad, baby
You know I’ve been so sweet and kind
Yeah, you know if you don’t stop doin’ me
The way you doin’ me, baby
I’m gonna, I’m gonna
[Incomprehensible] my poor, my
Yes, time has been my teacher
Baby and time has been my enemy too
Hey I said, time, time has been my teacher
You know time has been my enemy too
You know I found the way
To make you happy, baby
But you know you found another man
To make you happy too
Yeah, you are strain on my heart
You think I’m a fool, you want that piece of wood
I don’t know you makes me do you like that
Oh, that’s what you think, I just have a livin’ to make, baby
You don’t know what you’re talkin’ about
What trash, you don’t know me?
Yeah, fair enough, go on, fair enough
I don’t care how much you care, fair enough
I’ma do it to you anyway
I’m gonna, yeah, I’m oh yeah
I’m gonna squeeze, I’m gonna squeeze
And the whole world gonna know about it
Make your mind now, come on now
You might as well get in the groove
Come on, come on, squeeze
