John Lee Hooker – Red House lyrics
There's a red house
Over yonder, that's where my baby stays
Lord, there's a red house over yonder
Lord, that's where my baby stays
I ain't been home to see my baby in
Ninety-nine and one half days

Wait a minute, something's wrong here
The key won't unlock this door
Wait a minute, something's wrong, Lord
Have mercy, this key won't unlock this door
Something's goin' on here

I have a bad bad feeling that my baby
Don't live here no more
Well, I might as well a go back over yonder
Way back up on the hill
That 's something to do

Lord, I might as well go back over yonder
Way back yonder cross the hill
'Cause if my baby don't love me no more
I know her sister will
