Lyrics

Well I remember Jessie Mae
And I remember, how she used to wail
Back in Junior's yard
It was so so long ago

Well I remember Mississippi John Hurt
His finger picking nails
All covered in dirt
Down in Avalon
Well it was so so long ago

You all gave it to me
I could feel it in my bones
I just needed to see
Past the rolling stones

R.L. Burnside in the afternoon
Jumper on the line
Well he taught me that tune
With a little white lightning
That was so so long ago

Now Junior Kimbrough’s Electric
Juke Joint
Junior I love you
All night long
Now the Juke Joint’s gone
'Cause that was so so long ago

You all gave it to me
I could feel it in my bones
I just needed to see
Past the rolling stones

Well I’ve got a mountain
So high to climb
Gotta use my rhythm
Gonna use my rhymes

But I should have stayed
On the road so long ago
But I should have stayed
On the road so long ago
