Art and Lyrics: Terraplane Blues

Robert Johnson, Terraplane Blue 2001. Stephen Bess
Watercolor, pencil, and ink on paper



Terraplane Blues
"And I feel so lonesome you hear me when I moan (x2)

Who been drivin my terraplane for you since I've been gone

I'd said I flashed your lights mama your horn won't even blow

I even flash my lights mama this horn won't even blow

Got a short in this connection hoo-well, babe, its way down below

I'm on hist your hood momma mmmm I'm bound to check your oil (x2)

I got a woman that I'm lovin way down in Arkansas..."
