Howlin' Wolf - Oh! Red Lyrics




Oh Red, what should I do?
Oh Red, what should I do?
I'm sick an tired of askin' ya to sing them blues
Now Red, let's dance a while

Oh Red, let's dance a while
I'm sick an tired, tellin' ya to hold my hand
Oh Red, let's break 'em down
Oh Red, let's break 'em down

I'm sick an tired, tellin' ya to hold my hand
Now Red, you sweet to me
Oh Red, you sweet to me
But I'm sick an tired, tellin' ya to hold my hand

Oh Red, we gonna swing a while
Oh Red, we gonna swing a while
I'm sick an tired, tellin' ya to hold my hand

    Amen Brother!....I Can't Argue with ya there! ;)

  4. Sliptrail

    That is true. By the way in Taildragger Wolf says he don´t leave no tracks...but he left plenty great and everlasting ones. No tail can wipe them out!

  5. daddynap

    Only Just realised ....Today would have been Wolfs Birthday!...R.I.P big man.....

  6. daddynap

    You're welcome!... For Sure "The Wolf" does a great job on this one But definitely puts his mark all over It! :)

  7. Sliptrail

    Thanks, I know a few of the Hamfats´ songs but couldn´t place this one. I´m listening right now and there´s no mistaking the original "Oh Red"! "Red" and "ride" and "bed"... Say no more...Great stuff and interesting mix by Howlin with the jazzy elements still there.

  8. daddynap

    HI!...My Guess? a woman!...(A Redhead?)... this tune is actually based on one written by Charlie McCoy & recorded by the Harlem Hamfats around 1938?...pretty sure it's on youtube.... check it out! :)

    My English understanding, from reading, is that "red" refers to a person of mixed race//ancestry.

  9. Sliptrail

    I wonder who is he adressing? The little red rooster or is it perhaps a bottle of wine...Could it be the pianoplayer Billy "Red" Love?
