Rattlesnakin' Daddy > Main Riff and Verse

In this lesson series we will learn the tune Rattlesnakin' Daddy written by Blind Boy Fuller.  I begin with a demonstration of the song and then I slow down the main riff so you can learn it.  Pay special attention to the bassline and above all take your time and enjoy.

Loop 0:00 Run-Through of Rattlesnakin' Daddy

 

I woke up this morning about half past four

Half past five I want to rattle some more

 

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all night long

 

Rattle in the morning and late at night

Don't get my rattle I don't feel right

 

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all night long

 

I got a range in my kitchen, bake bread nice and brown

Get my rattlensnake daddy, turn my dumper upside down

 

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all night long

 

--- Solo ---

 

Old folks rattle and the young ones too

Ain't no body rattle like the way I do

 

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all night long

I'm a rattlesnakin' daddy, wants to rattle all night long
