FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Come On In My Kitchen’ (Robert Johnson) Larkin Poe

Robert Johnson

Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues musician and songwriter. His landmark recordings in 1936 and 1937 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that has influenced later generations of musicians. Although his recording career spanned only 7 months, he is now recognized one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.

As a traveling performer who played mostly on street corners, in juke joints, and at Saturday night dances, Johnson had little commercial success or public recognition in his lifetime.

Larkin Poe is an American roots rock band originally from north Georgia, currently based in Nashville, Tennessee, and fronted by sisters Rebecca Lovell (born January 30, 1991) and Megan Lovell (born May 12, 1989). Featuring strong southern harmonies, heavy electric guitar riffs, and slide guitar, they are often touted as “the little sisters of the Allman Brothers

Again, superb version. Recorded outside even harder for getting sound depth. Great voice and great slide guitar playing.

“Come On In My Kitchen”

You better come on in my kitchen
It’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors

When a woman gets in trouble
Everybody throws her down
Lookin’ for your good friend
None can be found
You better come on in my kitchen
It’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors

The woman I love, took from my best friend
Some joker got lucky, stole her back again
She better come on in my kitchen
Baby, it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors

Mama, can’t you hear that wind howl?
Oh how the wind do howl

You better come on in my kitchen
Baby, it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
The woman that I love, I crave to see
She’s up the country, won’t write to me
Then, you better come on in my kitchen
Goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors

I went to the mountain, far as my eyes could see
Some other man got my woman,
Lonesome blues got me
But she better come on in my kitchen
‘Cause it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors

My mama dead, papa well’s to be
Ain’t got nobody to love and care for me
She better come on in this kitchen
‘Cause it’s goin’ to be rainin’ outdoors
