    It's Caldonia (made famous by BB King and others)

    "...Walkin' with my baby, she got great big feet
    Long lean and lanky, ain't had enough to eat
    But she's my baby
    And I love her just the same

    Caldonia, Caldonia
    What make your big head so hard..."

    OK, next question (keeping with the blues lyrics idea)...

    "...went down to the bus station and looked upon the wall
    My money was to light people, couldn't go nowhere at all..."

    Please give the next line of the song, the song name and the artist.

    Can we revive this? Was too hard, I guess.
    It's "I'm a Bluesman (understand)?" by B.B. King

    Hi good to see ya mmcquain - think I've met you some place else? :)

    Let's see if we can get this thing going again, I think it's fun!

    So here's my question: who is the bluesman who in the late sixties/early seventies shared an appartment with Mike Bloomfield and learned to play blues guitar from him?

    Modern bluesman - used to be in a gospel group at the time - give it another shot, you still have a couple hours. :dude:

    hint: it wasn't in Chi-town, but in SF.

    Time's up. Too hard, I guess. It was Joe Louis Walker.
    Hey folks, I'd really like to play this game with y'all.

    O.K. next one should be easy: who was Hudson Whittaker?
