Come On In My Kitchen

Lyrics: Robert Johnson
Music: Robert Johnson

Robert Hunter sang this in a performance on 31 October 1998. Also played by Jerry Garcia with Doug Sahm and Leon Russell in 1972. These are the lyrics Hunter sings:

When a womanís in trouble, everyone puts her down
She look for her good man, Lord he canít be found
Come on in my kitchen
'Cause itís going to be raining outdoors

The woman I love, split with my best friend
That joker got lucky, stole her back again
You better come on in my kitchen
Because itís going to be raining outdoors

Wintertime's coming, there's gonna be snow
Can't hold on long, babe, there's nowhere to go
Come on in my kitchen
'Cause itís going to be raining outdoors

You better come on in my kitchen
Because itís going to be raining outdoors

The woman I love's gone away, I know she ain't coming back
I took her last nickel from a [?] sack
Come on in my kitchen
'Cause itís going to be raining outdoors
The lyrics Leon Russell sang with Jerry Garcia and Doug Sahm were:
The woman I love, left with my best friend
Some joker got lucky, stole her right back again
You better come on in to my kitchen
Because itís going to be raining outdoors

Now the woman I love, gone across the sea
Oh little girl, won't write to me
You better come on in to my kitchen
Because itís going to be raining outdoors

The woman I love, left with my best friend
Some joker got lucky, stole her right back again
You better come on in to my kitchen
Because itís going to be raining outdoors

I go up on a mountain, high as I can be
Some other man got my little girl, the blues got me
You better come on in to my kitchen
Because itís going to be raining outdoors

The woman I love, left with my best friend
Some joker got lucky, stole her right back again
You better come on in to my kitchen
'Cause itís going to be raining
I think it's gonna be raining
I think it's gonna be raining outdoors
