When I first came to town people I was walkin ' down Pennsylvania Avenue.
I heard a lot people talking 'bout the White House. I decided I'd drop in there that night. And when I got there I said man what's shakin'. They said look man you can't come in here this where the President hang out. What you want. I said look man, I'm John Lee Hooker, I sing the blues. They said the President don't have time for the blues. I said look man everybody got to have the blues sometime don't matter where you from or where you at.
I decided to make a run for President. I know everyone got the blues cause I'm in touch wilt 'em when I sing the blues it's my life.
I got the number one record in Detroit. He's called Boom Boom. It tells a tremendous story these lyrics are something else. Every time you hear Boom Boom, that's a dollar change. I don't need yo money cause I finance my own campaign. I ain't for sale. I keep a fat bankroll in my pocket baby, big as a hay bale.
