Little Red Rooster by Keith Richards & James Cotton (LIVE)


Keith Richards & James Cotton performing “Little Red Rooster” during rehearsals for the Hubert Sumlin Benefit concert.

This is some damn good blues! Everyone in that room is phenomenal! So much give and take and push and pull going on between everyone. So many conversations all at once on a classic. AMAZING!

Lyrics:
I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day
I am the little red rooster
Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the farm yard upset in every way

The dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl
Watch out strange cat people
Little red rooster’s on the prowl

If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
If you see my little red rooster
Please drive him home
Ain’t had no peace in the farm yard
Since my little red rooster’s been gone

Songwriters: Dixon Willie
