Ten Years After - "Good Morning Little School Girl" - Winterland 1975




Sonny Boy Williamson I recorded "Good Morning, School Girl" in 1937 during his first recording session for Bluebird Records. The song is an uptempo blues with an irregular number of bars. Although identified with Chicago blues, a write-up in the Blues Hall of Fame notes "it was a product of Sonny Boy’s west Tennessee roots and his pre-Chicago ensemble work".


The melody has been traced to “Back and Side Blues”, a 1934 blues song recorded by Son Bonds. "Good Morning, School Girl" features Williamson's vocal and harmonica with accompaniment by Big Joe Williams and Robert Lee McCoy (also known as Robert Nighthawk) on guitars.

Good morning little schoolgirl

Can I go home, home with you?

Good morning little schoolgirl

Can I go home, home with you?

Tell your mama and your papa

I won't bore you, yeah

Baby, I won't bore you all night long

Yes, I do

Wrong , wrong, wrong

Baby, I want to ball you every night
