(d. johnson/j. walker/c. cawte/s. turner)

Got a robert johnson photograph that you didn't know exists
Even got his autograph, let you have it for a kiss
I'm a liar baby but I only lie for you
There is nothin' in this world I wouldn't do for you

I met memphis minnie lola(? ) and she taught me all I know
Told me how to sing the blues when that lonesome whistle blows
I'm a liar baby but you know it's just for fun
Don't know minnie lola(? ) so put away your gun

Well I've lied about my name and lied about my age
Told so many damned lies and you know I've got away
Well I've lied around the world and I lied about the news
So it's me you'll belive when I've lied about the blues

- guitar solo -

Me and john lee hooker played a muddy water song
Working on the chain gang in the alabama sun

I'm a liar baby but I only lie for you
There is nothin' in this world I wouldn't do for you
I'm a liar baby but you know it's just for fun
Don't know minnie lola(? ) so put away your gun

Lying about the blues
(repeat to fade)
