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 woman�s in trouble, everyone puts her down
She look for her good man, Lord he can�t be found
Come on in my kitchen
'Cause it�s 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 it�s 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 it�s going to be raining outdoors

You better come on in my kitchen
Because it�s 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 it�s 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 it�s 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 it�s 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 it�s 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 it�s 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 it�s going to be raining
I think it's gonna be raining
I think it's gonna be raining outdoors
