Friday Music: Wash My Trouble Down…


Seasick Steve singing and playing guitar. Jack White (The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, The Dead Weather) on drums. Alison Mosshart (The Kills, The Dead Weather) singing. John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin, Them Crooked Vultures) on bass. covering Mississippi Fred McDowell’s “Write Me a Few Lines”.

Yes, it IS awesome.

Write Me a Few Lines

Lord, when you get home, baby
Please write me a few of yo’ lines
Lord, when you get home, baby
Sit down and write me a few of yo’ lines

Lord, that-a be consolation
Oh Lord, mama to my worryin’ mind
Lord, I left my baby
Standin’ in her back door, cryin’

Lord, I left my baby
Standin’, Lord, in her back door, cryin’
Lord, I never felt so sorry, Lo’d
Honey, till she said goodbye

Lord, I’m goin’ down to the river
I’m ‘on sit down on the ground
You know I’m goin’ down to the river, baby
I’m ‘on sit down on the ground
I’m ‘onna let the waves of water
Lord, be to wash my trouble down
