"Come On In My Kitchen" as written by Woody Payne and Robert Johnson....
Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm-mmm

You better come on in my kitchen
Well, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors
Ah, the woman I love, took from my best friend
Some joker got lucky, stole her back again
You better come on in my kitchen
It's goin' to be rainin' outdoors

Oh, she's gone, I know she won't come back
I've taken the last nickel out of her nation sack
You better come on in my kitchen
It's goin' to be rainin' outdoors
Oh, can't you hear that wind howl?
Oh, can't you hear that wind would howl?
You better come on in my kitchen
Well, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors

When a woman gets in trouble, everybody throws her down

Lookin' for her good friend, none can be found
You better come on in my kitchen

Babe, it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors
Wintertime's comin', it's gon' be slow
You can't make the winter, babe, that's dry, long, so
You better come on in my kitchen, 'cause it's goin' to be rainin' outdoors

    General CommentYes, Shawn. This is my favorite of Bob's songs. I don't entirely agree with you corporal. Yes, of course the metaphores were a necessity. But I don't think that he's immitating a woman. But trying to re-entice the local slut, who was with his friend, then with him, & then ran off with another fella. "Come inside 'fore it rains" is his excuse to get her back in his house. She's in trouble with everyone else (maybe for being such a ho) & no one wants to give her sanctuary. She ain't got no more friends. Except Robert , of course.

    General CommentCrooked Still does a great "watered down" version from a girls perspective, however, none compare to the original "King of the Blues!"

    General CommentMusic back then was much more subtle than today. They couldn't just straight out say: "Cum on into my pussy." They had to be creative and use metaphors. And that was the genius of old time blues musicians like Johnson. For the line "Come on into my kitchen," he immitates a female voice and it's of course a metaphor.
