Who Do You Love - Bo Diddley

Who Do You Love

Bo Diddley

(Ellis McDaniel, Checker 842, 1956)

I walked forty-seven miles of barbed wire
I use a cobra snake for a neck tie
I got a brand new house on the road side
Made from rattle snake hide
I got a brand new chimney made on top
Made out of a human skull
Now come on take a little walk with me Arlene
And tell me who do you love
Who do you love? Who do you love?
Who do you love? Who do you love?
Who do you love?

Tombstone head and a graveyard mind
Just twenty-two and I don't mind dyin'
Who do you love? Who do you love?
Who do you love? Who do you love?

I rode around the town, used a rattle snake whip
Take it easy Arlene, 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
Hit a bump and somebody screamed
You should've 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
She said, a-ooh-wee Bo, you know I understand
Who do you love? Who do you love?
Who do you love? Who do you love?
