If I Had Possession

I needed a song that I could play slide guitar on and this was perfect. We all loved the groove the minute we started playing it. This was a wrap in two takes.

If I had Possession

Lyrics

If I had possession, over judgment day

If I had possession, over judgment day

Lord the men that I'm lovin' would 

Have no right to pray

And I went to the mountain, far as my eyes could see

And I went to the mountain, far as my eye could see

Oh somebody got my baby and the lonesome blues got me

And I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long

Lord I rolled and I tumbled, cried the whole night long

And I woke up this mornin', my biscuit roller gone

SOLO

Had to fold my arms and, slowly walked away

Had to fold my arms and I, slowly walked away

I said in my mind, "Yo, trouble gon' come some day"

And now run here baby, get down on bended knee

Oh now run here baby, get down on bended knee

I wanna tell you all about the, way they treated me

Did you know..?

Robert Leroy Johnson (May 8, 1911 – August 16, 1938) was an American blues singer and musician. His landmark recordings from 1936–37 display a combination of singing, guitar skills, and songwriting talent that have influenced later generations of musicians.

The song may bear relation to "Minglewood Blues", recorded January 30, 1928 by Gus Cannon's Jug Stompers. Parts of the tune and harmonica accompaniment are similar to "Rollin' and Tumblin'". The earliest recorded version is "Roll and Tumble Blues" by Hambone Willie Newbern (Okeh 8679), recorded March 14, 1929.Other bluesmen recorded their own versions—such as "If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day" by Robert Johnson in 1936,"Brownsville Blues" and "The Girl I Love, She Got Long Curly Hair" by Sleepy John Estes, "Goin' Back to Memphis" bySunnyland Slim, "Banty Blues" by Charley Patton, and "Rollin' Blues" by John Lee Hooker.
