From Four Until Late > Performance and Introduction Breakdown

In this first lesson we will learn the introduction to this classic Robert Johnson tune which set it up so nicely. Take your time and learn the chords and watch your tempo. I especially like the use of the walkdown in the song as it is used for the intro and the ending. Focus on your tempo and be mindful to brush the strings rather than picking them. I think you will find this tune a fun challenge to play and sing, despite its simplicity.

I hope that you enjoy it.

From four till late

I was wringing my hands and cryin'

I believe to my soul that your daddy's Gulfport bound

From Memphis to Norfolk is a thirty-six hour ride

From Memphis to Norfolk is a thirty-six hour ride

A man's like a prisoner and he's never satisfied

 

A woman is like a dresser

Some man is always rambling through its drawers

A woman is like a dresser

Some man is always rambling through its drawers

It's 'cause so many men wear an apron overhaul

 

From four until late

She get with a no-good bunch and clown

From four until late

She get with a no-good bunch and clown

 

Now, she won't do nothin'

But tear a good man's reputation down

When I leave this town, I'm 'onna bid you fare, farewell

When I leave this town, I'm 'onna bid you fare, farewell

 

And when I return again

You'll have a great long story to tell
