Song Lyric Sunday: “Walkin’ Through The Park”

Given the prompt “Avenue/Boulevard/Drive/Road/Street,” this song came to mind. It’s one of my favorite Muddy Waters songs, “Walkin’ Through The Park,” where he walks with his baby down the street, down the avenue, and through the park. This is a 1970 recording of the song, with Muddy sportin’ a pretty good Afro. Backing him are Pee Wee Madison (left handed) and Sam Lawhorn (right-handed), guitars; Carey Bell, harmonica; Pinetop Perkins, piano; Calvin Jones, bass; and Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, drums.

fritz5152, who posted the song, provided the lyrics:

I’m goin’ out walkin’
Walkin’ down along the street
I’m gonna walk her along beside me,
No she can’t be beat

I’m goin’ out walkin’,
Walking down through the park
I’m goin’ out walkin’,
Walking down through the park
I’m gonna walk in the moonlight,
Walking till the night gets dark

I’m goin’ out walkin’
Down on the avenue
I’m goin’ out walkin’
Down on the avenue
I’m gonna walk for so long
Till she won’t know what to do

Don’t you bother my baby,
No tellin’ what she’ll do
Don’t you bother my baby,
No tellin’ what she’ll do
My girl she may cut you,
She may shoot you too

And that’s Song Lyric Sunday for June 2, 2019.
