The wind blows through the valley
It's warm and hard and wild
It gets all up inside the trees
And shakes the leaves all night
They shake up through the mountains
They shake up to the sky
Shake up to the moon above
And then it starts to shine

Lord, it makes me tremble
Lord, it makes me tremble
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Baby, shakin' and shakin', shakes

Well, a fault runs through the valley
As long as it is mean
It starts to tear into the earth
And gets all in between
It shakes up through the mountains
It shakes down to the sea
It shakes up to the volcano
And then it starts to scream

Lord, it makes me tremble
Lord, it makes me tremble
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes

There's a woman in this valley
She's sweet as she is rough
And when she starts to dance that way
She shakes the boys all up
She shakes it through the mountain
She shakes it through the night
She shakes it like a hurricane
She gives a blind man sight

Lord, it makes him tremble
Lord, it makes them tremble
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Baby, she's shakin' and shakin', shakes

Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes

Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes
Shakin' and shakin', shakes

Yeah, baby!
Shakin' and shakin', shakes!

Just turned it up!  Covering one of my favorite bands Los Lobos.  Saw her play this 2 years ago and she rocked!!!!

Saw her in London a couple of years ago and it was really superb. Last year I moved to Berlin (Germany) and looking forward to seeing her again at the end of July in Berlin. Hope that her health problems have been resolved. Keep on rocking Bonnie!
How about playing "Angel from Montgomery"? 

No guitar work, but her vocals are outstanding. 
I saw Bonnie sing with Steely Dan in the SF Bay Area quite a few years ago.  That's when I gained a lot more respect for her musical talent
Solid version, but I like Los Lobos version better.  Great cut, too.
Fun tune as only Bonnie could do it, and a nice guitar rave-up.
I think it's hilarious how many complaints there are that this was/is overplayed. I listen to RP a lot and this is the first time I've noticed it.

Segue into Wicked Rain by Los Lobos... both are Cesar Rojas songs... well done!

I got a KICK outta that when it popped up on my Pandora station!
Just can't tolerate anything she's put out.....
I missed this song, until now. Thanks for playing it!
Way, way overplayed!
Bland song by LL not improved by BR.

{#Yes} It's a toe tapper. I like this version. Prefer, as previous listener did, the Los Lobos version. Still, it alerted me to her new album which I will sample. Thanks.

 
"Dig in Deep" is a solid BR album.  I bought it to prepare for her concert here in Santa Cruz in February.  I've submitted "I Knew," from the album.  It would be a great, bluesy addition to the RP playlist, but so far, it only has one vote!

Would any loyal BR fans please click the "Submissions" tab above and vote for another song here in RP from the Red Queen of Blues?

Please stick to the Los Lobos version.
Bonnie's version is vanilla, made worse by the "mullet" ending.
two days in a row. wow.
Wonder Woman  : )

This song gets heavy rotation on RP.  Goes back to the promo they had of the little kid saying: "Some songs I like. Some songs I don't like."

 
Yea it seems to be getting more air then other new tunes out there.  Would like to hear more off this album.
Jeez, how many times has this been played already this week? ENOUGH!!

Nowhere near as good as the LL original, IMHO.

Bonnie does Los Lobos...WHO KNEW?

 
Seen her play half a gig with them.  She could easily be part of the band.  Great slide solos, fit right in
it's the new Tuesday afternoon song {#Dancingbanana_2}
oh Yeah
I generally like Bonnie Rait's work, but can't abide this song.  Yuck!
{#Bananajumprope} she been doin this for years and like so many others just gets better!
Add this to the list of good Los Lobos covers ... thinking of Robert Plant Angel Dance ... any others?
