Lyric for the day

Well my mama she didn't 'low me, just to stay out all night long, oh Lord
Well my mama didn't 'low me, just to stay out all night long
I didn't care what she didn't 'low, I would boogie-woogie anyhow

When I first came to town people, I was walkin' down Hastings Street
Everybody was talkin' about, the Henry Swing Club
I decided I drop in there that night
When I got there, I say, "Yes, people"
They was really havin' a ball!
Yes, I know
Boogie Chillen'!

John Lee Hooker

No-one can play the boogie like John Lee. No definitive structure, maybe one chord but man he was good.
He was quoted 'I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks'
