​Down At The Landing

This song is by John Lee Hooker and appears…


(John Lee Hooker)

When I was down at the landing people, Lord, waiting with my head hung down
Lord, I was down at the landing, with my head hung down
I could see everybody's baby gettin' on board, Lord, but I couldn't see mine, Lord, I couldn't

I said "Lord have mercy, where could my baby be"
I said "Lord have mercy, people, where could my baby be"
I could see everybody's ba, ba, ba, ba, baby, Lord, but I can't see mine

This big boat kept on rollin', big boat kept on rollin' along
Lord, but it did, Lord, the big boat, the big boat people. big boat kept on rollin' along
I was standin' there wonderin', with my head hung down

I believe I'll call to the cargo, yes, yes, yeah, I'm gonna see if my baby's down
Oh, call to the cargo, see if my baby's down
My baby she might have got hung up people, Lord, if she could make it down
