Lyrics of Come On In My Kitchen

You'd better come on in my kitchen
babe it going to be rainin outdoors
Ah the woman I love
took from my best friend
Some joker got lucky
stiole her back again
You'd better come on in my kitchen
babe it going to be rainin outdoors
Oh-ah she's gone
I know she won't come back again
I've taken the last nickel
out of her nation sack
You'd better come on in my kitchen
babe it going to be rainin outdoors
When a woman gets in trouble
everybody throws her down
Lookin for her good friend
none can be found
You'd better come on in my kitchen
babe it going to be rainin outdoors
Winter time's comin
its gonna be slow
You can't make the winter babe
thats dry long so
You'd better come on in my kitchen
babe it going to be rainin outdoors

'Come On in My Kitchen' is a blues song by Robert Johnson. Johnson recorded the song on Monday, November 23rd, 1936 at the Gunter Hotel in San Antonio, Texas - his first recording session. The melody is based on a hit record by the string band the Mississippi Sheiks, 'Sitting on Top of the World', (1930) . The Sheiks in their song state that 'now she's gone but I don't worry, cos I'm sitting on top of the world' and so celebrate having come to terms with the loss of a woman, but Johnson evokes an altogether darker mood, with his own lyrics telling a more unresolved and anguished story. His different musical arrangement on slide guitar (in open tuning, commonly thought to be open G) is based on Tampa Red's solo instrumental recording of the same tune with the title 'Things 'Bout Coming My Way No. 2'. This had been a hit for Tampa Red in 1936, and the song had provided earlier hits for him and Georgia Tom and for Kokomo Arnold in 1935.

Johnson's recording was released on the Vocalion label (no. 03563) as a 'race record' - cheap records for the black consumer market. The song was among those compiled on the 'King of the Delta Blues Singers' LP in the 1960s. (A slower alternate take was also later found and released on CD collections; this version also has ten extra lines of lyrics.)
