Killing Floor By Howlin' Wolf (aka Chester Burnett)


I should'a quit you, long time ago
I should'a quit you, baby, long time ago
I should'a quit you, and went on to Mexico
If I ha'da followed, my first mind
If I ha'da followed, my first mind
I'd'a been gone, since my second time
I should'a went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me
I should'a went on, when my friend come from Mexico at me
I was foolin' with ya baby, I let ya put me on the killin' floor
Lord knows, I should'a been gone
Lord knows, I should'a been gone
And I wouldn't've been here, down on the killin' floor

I'd like to add a second song by Mr. Burnett called Sittin' On Top of the World.

 

Sittin' On Top of the World (1957 recording)
From The Real Folk Blues (MCA CHD 9273)


One summer day, she went away
She gone and left me, she gone to stay
But now she's gone, and I can't worry
Because I'm sittin' on top of the world.
Worked all the summer, worked all the fall
Had to take Christmas, in my overalls
But now she's gone, and I don't worry
Sittin' on top of the world.
Goin' down to the freight yard, catch me a freight train
I'm gonna leave this town, work done got hard
But now she's gone, and I don't worry
Sittin' on top of the world.
