Lyrics (Transcript by Renwick M)

There’s a red house over yonder, baby
Aud:
Lord, that’s where my baby stay-ay-ay-ay
Lord, there’s a red house over yonder
Lord, that’s where my baby stay-ay-ay
Lord, I ain’t been home to see my pretty baby
Lo-ord, in about a ninety nine and one half da-ay *

Wait a minute somethin’s wrong
Lord, that key won’t unlock this door
Let me dig it more
Wait a minute somethin’s wro-o-ong
Lo-ord, that key won’t unlo-ock this doo-oor, yeah
Lord, I’ve got a bad feelin’-uh
Lord! That my baby don’t live here no mo-o-ore
She ain’t said a God damn thing about leavin’
But I’ve still got my guitar, it’s all right

Aud:

Yeah

Yes, I think I’ll go back there, over yonder
Way back over yonder across the hi-i-ill
Lord, I might as well go back over yonder, ba-by
Way back over yonder across the hill-uh

If my baby don’t love me no more
Lord, I know, good an’ well, her nappy headed1 sister will

sub-Saharan Africans hair and the short fuzzy ends of fibers on the surface of cloth called ‘naps’

Aud :
Jimi : That’s right, right. That’s one of two things we didn’t put together on that-uh, another LP,
that we’ve got a lot of straight compositions for
Aud : Yeah! Yeah! etc… Machine Gun!
Jimi :
Aud : Get on with the show!
Jimi : We’d like to entertain you for an error of five secs, a thing called Toon Up Jam
It’s so embarrassing, man, just standing here an’ tooning-up, man One… One, two, three…
