Isaiah I know you've probably heard this before....but I only recently heard this one....by Lonnie Johnson..."Careless Love"

Lonnie Johnson recorded this classic blues on December 17, 1927 in Chicago.

It was reissued on the LP "Lonnie Johnson, Volume Two: 1927-32" on the Matchbox Bluesmaster Series in 1987.

Love oh love oh careless love
Love, love oh careless love
You have caused me to weep
You have caused me to moan
You have caused me to lose my happy home

Don't never drive a stranger from your door
Don't never drive a stranger from your door
It may be your best friend knockin' on your door
Then it may be your brother, you will never now

Careless love, look how you carry me down
Careless love, look how you carry me down
You caused me to lose my mother and she's layin' in six feet of ground
Carless love I can't let you carry me down

Careless love, you drove me through the rain and snow
Careless love,you drove me through the rain and snow
You have robbed me out of my silver and out of all my gold
I'll be damned if you rob me out of my soul

You've worried my mother until she died
You've caused my father to lose his mind
Now **** you, I'm goin' to shoot you and shoot you four five times
And stand over you until you finish dyin'

anyway thought some of yall would like this....

Yeah, brother Sip, that went down real smooth, with a kick like a strong stallion at the end:


Careless love, you drove me through the rain and snow
Careless love,you drove me through the rain and snow
You have robbed me out of my silver and out of all my gold
I'll be damned if you rob me out of my soul

You've worried my mother until she died

Now **** you, I'm goin' to shoot you and shoot you four five times
And stand over you until you finish dyin'


Now that was a beauiful piece of folk poetry there! But, now, Sip, I never heard that particular song before... I only have heard that Mr. Lonnie Johnson is regarded as among the great masters of the idiom... I think I have one song by him called, BIG LEG WOMAN, and even though the song was recorded so long ago, it sounds very fresh... BTW, I heard that Slim Harpo, I'M A KING BEE, and I was floored! Bangin' piece a blues, brother(smile!)



Peace!
Isaiah
