Terraplane Blues

cd cover: terraplane by scott ainslie(Robert Johnson)

And I feel so lonesome, you hear me when I moan.
And I feel so lonesome, you hear me when I moan.
Who been drivin’ my Terraplane, for you since I been gone?

I said I flash your lights, your horn won’t even blow.
(Somebody’s been running my batteries down here…)
I even flash my lights, mama—this horn won’t even blow.
Got a short in this connection, hoo-well, way down below.

I’m gon’ hoist your hood, mama–I’m bound to check your oil.
I’m gon’ hoist your hood, mama–I’m bound to check your oil.
I got a woman that I’m lovin’—way down in Arkansas.

BRIDGE:
Now you know, the coils ain’t even buzzin’
Little generator won’t get that spark.
All’s in a bad condition, you gotta have
These batt’ries charged, I’m cryin’
Please–please don’t do me wrong.
Who been drivin’ my Terraplane now,
For you since I been gone.

Mr. Highway man, please don’t block the road.
Mr. Highway man, please don’t block the road.
She’s regist’rin’ a cold one hundred
and I’m booked and I got to go.

Mmmmm—Mmmmmmmmmm.
Mmmmm——You hear me weep and moan.
Who been drivin’ my Terraplane
For you since I been gone.

I’m ‘on’ get deep down in this connection
Keep on tanglin’ with yo’ wires.
I’m ‘on’ get deep down in this connection
Keep on tanglin’ with yo’ wires.
And when I mash down on your little starter
Then your spark plug will give me fire.
