Robert Johnson - I'm A Steady Rollin' Man Lyrics




I'm a steady rollin' man
I roll both night and day
I'm a steady rollin' man
I roll both night and day
But I haven't got no sweet woman
Boys to be rollin' this way

I'm the man that rolls
When icicles hangin' on the tree
I'm the man that rolls
When icicles hangin' on the tre
And now you hear me howlin', baby
Down on my bended knee

I'm a hard workin' man
Have been for many years I know
I'm a hard workin' man
Have been for many long years I know
And some cream puffs usin' my money
Ooh well babe, that'll never be no more
You can't give your sweet woman
Everything she wants in one time
You can't give your sweet woman
Everything she wants in one time

Well boys, she get ramblin' in her brain
Some other man on her mind

I'm a steady rollin' man
I roll both night and day
I'm a steady rollin' man
I roll both night and day
But I haven't got no sweet woman
Boys to be rollin' this way

    I'm a steady rollin' man, I roll both night and day
    I'm a steady rollin' man, hmm, I roll both night and day
    But I haven't got no sweet woman, hmm, boys, to be rollin' this-a way
    I'm the man that rolls, when icicles hangin' on the tree
    I'm the man that rolls, when icicles hangin' on the tree
    And now you hear me howlin', baby, hmm, down on my bended knee
    I'm a hard-workin' man, have been for many years, I know
    I'm a hard-workin' man, have been for many long years, I know
    And some cream puff's usin' my money, ooh well, babe, but that'll never be no more
    You can't give your sweet woman everything she wants in one time
    Ooh, you can't give your sweet woman, everything she wants in one time
    Well, boys, she get ramblin' in her brain, hmm, some monkey man on her mind
    I'm a steady rollin' man, I roll both night and day
    I'm a steady rollin' man and I roll both night and day
    Well I don't have no sweet woman, hmm, boys, to be rollin' this-a way

    Wings Unfurl

  8. Raj Onetwo

    Got here after hearing Peter Green - we are lucky and privileged to hear the original here
    It can’t get any better than this
    Real raw blues
    Hope America will never forget these men ❤️😘😘

  9. KATIKEI LOLMODOONI

    Well but only worried with the signs associated with his photo.

  11. Splaticus Blah

    George Thorogood does a cover of this on slide guitar.

  12. JOHN PALMER

    The original is not primitive, it's probably the most sophisticated performance there is of this blues song.

  13. Bruce Cauvet

    Now, this is Robt. Johnson!

  14. Dennis Rash

    I'd pay a stupid amount to hear this man play the gospel blues.

    dronus

    You already have...

    Dennis Rash

    I mean in person not through speakers...

  15. johnatan QUINDE ramos

    The best blues of the hystori is and sr. robert johnson....R.I.P

  16. In the corner

    Paganini was the first

    Poowawa TV

    almost but not quite

  17. Moonlingth RYB

    Nada que ver lo que dicen yankee de mierda Robert era un Super artista que tropezó en una carretera de mistério el fue y sera la Influencia Que lleva El Nombre Del DeltaBlues La música negra aguante Robert Johnson

  18. King KB TV

    1:50 just imagine that look he gave that jealous man when he said that

  19. Joey Trimble

    This man was the truth

  20. ChaosTrident

    Has anyone played with the theory that "crossroads" could of been a figure-ation on guitar neck. Meaning ... Two pictures he makes it very noticable of the finger pattern first third finger up down and second finger and pinky is in down and up figure. Hence crossing the pattern. Learning by patterns is how I learned. Mabee this is how he came up with the tasty-est rock-blues ever!Just a thought. If Elvis was "The King" then Robert was god....and they broke the mold.

  21. Walt Kowalski

    If there's a prophet for what became rock n roll, Mr. Johnson is it. Truly impressive.

    invader dibb

    That credit goes to chuck berry

  22. ssurfcity

    About as heavy as it gets.

    Michael Williams

    ssurfcity this is demonic but dope as fuck

  23. Johny Grasa

    Its amazing how smooth he sounds.

    Michael Williams

    Johny Grasa that's all he knows how to do is be smooth brotha

  24. Bill Hyder

    Truly a bucket list item.!!!!!!

  25. Bill Hyder

    Take a trip down the Mississippi. You get the vi be. Clarksdale Mississippi will truly bring it home.

  26. vtwintora

    that was awesome

  27. Paul West

    This is the genesis of rock and roll. Without this stuff there would be no Elvis, and therefore no Beatles.

    Poowawa TV

    @Brazilian Atlantis elvis' ripped off rock and roll was straight up blues sung for years, what johnson played was a collection of delta and other styles, inevitably this man affected the people you claim could not have heard him, please think, trying to help you

    Brazilian Atlantis

    @Sepulcher "why are people fascinated with Robert Johnson?" Honestly, it's largely because of a Ralph Macchio movie.

    Brazilian Atlantis

    @Poowawa TV "nearly all of them heard blues" And nearly all of them didn't hear _his_ blues because he was little-known to anyone until the '60s. That's why the list of '50s rock and rollers who'd even heard of Robert Johnson in the '50s that you're about to make (or Carter is about to make or Michael is about to make) is going to be _very_ short. Go.

    Creighton the Histoman

    elvis got a few of his songs from a guy named Arthur crudup, who was a blues singer from the mississippi delta, and this man was around, playing shows when johnson was alive, and there is some similarity in playing styles between both men. Crudup was playing the blues in the 20s, and 30s and 40s. But, yes, Johnson was more influential in the 60s, not the 50s.

    sam autio

    Leadbelly too

  28. Fred M

    There are no more than 3 picture's of the man.....But he was A genius.

    Dyssekt DGE

    There's 0 pictures of a lot of geniuses.

    Conspiracy Theorist

    there are only 2 pictures of robert

    Michael Williams

    Fred M I saw only two. where's the third

    Quis Ut

    then whose the fuck are those pics on the slideshow

    THANATOS FANATICOS

    Yes , Blues music was being funded by various resources at this point. To have one photograph in a common life was an accomplishment and vanity item. A lot of these blues pioneers where also semi affluent I assume.

  29. Mickey Hay

    proper blues

  30. Jamesridleychuck Hill

    I thoroughly enjoyed him. music man James chuck Hill

  31. Jamesridleychuck Hill

  39. Christian Inkster

    Thanks for uploading. Fascinating to learn about music like Robert Johnson's and how it influenced so many like Clapton, etc we take so much for granted today.

    Joshua Wilkie

    Na BRO!_!I-i!_! Mr Robert Johnson is highly appreciated thus having the upmost respect from every HELL Blues Guitarist I know.)' The Man Mr Robert Johnson was not just a innovator of, but an instigator of a lot of what we know as the Blues Today,(''. Check "Keith Richards Blues" another HELL youtube site clarifying hence backing up all I say.
    All my best wishes sent your way.\'.

    Thanks Tommy. Glad you liked it.

  41. tommy bassham

    Very creative slide show to go with this wonderful piece of music. I think Mr. Johnson would be proud of your tribute to him!

  42. wilson mcphert

    There are only about 3 photos of him. I used high res versions and cropped and manipulated them to seem like a lot more. However I did use others which looked like him to make the video stretch out, and hopefully make it interesting, not just the usual static photo of him.

  43. Thrawn6211

    The only pictures in this video that I have seen before are the one of him with the suspenders and cigarette and the publicity photo of him. I didn't know there were so many others.

  44. Blues Student

    looks like the tune of Stop Breaking Down which is in open A tuning :D

  45. 12Radius

    Makes me want play me gibson

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET SWEET ROBERT...THANX FOR COMIN ALONG IN MY RIDE...LUVS 4 EVER...U AN ME AN THE DEVIL MAKE 3...WITH THE THUNDER AN LIGHTNIN AHEAD AN CORTEZ AT OUR HEELZ...

  48. RickGibbonsOfficial

    Great performer, but I dislike how this guy gets so much buzz when no one knows about Blind Willie Johnson, whom I prefer musically.

  49. macpony2571780

    Once you get an ear for the origional version after hearing it so electrified by other artists you realize how much nicer it is in it's pure form

  50. Ben Pilch

    @wilsonmcphert Cheers for that, almost got me hyped! :P

  51. wilson mcphert

    @MetalAndRockGuru

    It's actually a painting heavily cropped from the larger one at 2.13.
