It's Bad You Know - R.L. Burnside

It's bad you know

It's bad you know

She'd asked me why
I just went on n' told her

(x 4)

The engineer blown the whistle,
The fireman he rang the bell.

(x 4)

It's bad you know

She'd asked me why
I just went on n' told her

She'd asked me why
I just went on n' told her

It's bad you know

It's bad you know

  • Tony Rio says

    After transcribing the lyrics obviously the song is about a train accident which makes sense to me. Especially when you consider R.L. Burnside's age and his blues roots which go back almost a Century. R.I.P. R.L. burnside . . . long live the blues.

    I tend to agree with the following interpretation:

    The engineer blown the whistle,
    The fireman he rang the bell.
