Annotationen

Ronnie Hawkins, der kanadische Rockabilly Sänger und seine Backingband The Hawks, die später The Band werden. Die Aufnahme dieses Rock-'n'-Roll-Klassikers von Bo Diddley ist bemerkenswert, weil sie wie ein späterer Garagerock-Track klingt. Robbie Robertson spielt seine Gitarre mit viel Verzerrung und macht aus einem frenetischen Voodoo Party-Hit eine panisch überdrehte und fieberhafte Raserei. Die dunkle Stimmung wird später vom Psychobilly wieder aufgegriffen.

Lyrics

I walk 47 miles of barbed wire I use a cobra-snake for a necktie I got a brand new house on the roadside Made from rattlesnake hide I got a brand new chimney made on top Made out of a human skull Now come on take a walk with me, child And tell me, who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Tombstone hand and a graveyard mine Just 22 and I don't mind dying Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? I rode around the town, use a rattlesnake whip Take it easy child, don't give me no lip Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Night was dark, but the sky was blue Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew Heard a bump, and somebody screamed You should have heard just what I seen Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Arlene took me by my hand And she said ooowee boy, you know I understand Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love? Who do you love?
