“Travelling Riverside Blues,“ sometimes called “Mudbone” or “Mud Bone,“ is a blues song written and recorded in Dallas, Texas by the bluesman Robert Johnson. Johnson’s June 20, 1937 recording has a typical 12 bar blues structure (though as is common in downhome blues of this era, the length of each verse is in fact thirteen-and-a-half bars of 4/4), played on a single guitar tuned to open G, with a slide. It was first released on the 1961 compilation LP King of the Delta Blues Singers. The song has proved popular with more recent blues musicians. The song is well known for the following lyrics: “I want you to squeeze my lemon until the juice runs down my leg.“ Read on...
