Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low;
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve baby, to turn Uncle John from your door.

I woke up this morning, I had them Statesboro Blues,
I woke up this morning, had them Statesboro Blues.
Well, I looked over in the corner, and Grandpa seemed to have them too.

Well my momma died and left me,
My poppa died and left me,
I ain't good looking baby,
But I'm somewhat sweet and kind.

I'm goin' to the country, baby do you wanna go?
But if you can't make it baby, your sister Lucille said she wanna go.
(and I sure will take her).

I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen;
Well, I love that woman, better than any woman I've ever seen.
Well, now, she treat me like a king, yeah, yeah, yeah,
And she look like a dog gone queen.

Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
Wake up momma, turn your lamp down low.
You got no nerve babe, to turn Uncle John from your door.

I've said this before and will say it again, this is the best live album ever recorded!




It is difficult for me to pick "the best" for me.  Definitely in the top 10. maybe top 5. Extremely well  recorded!  GREAT MUSICIANSHIP!  

Dickey Betts' is heard here on guitar between the lyrics 'sister Lucille wants to go' and 'love that woman'. 
All else is Duane Allman playing slide guitar (in open E) like no one had previously nor has since - impeccably. 
Untouchable.




what a set BillG




Chuck Berry Maybelline
Peter Tosh John B. Goode natch :)
Ben Harper When It's Good
Muddy Waters Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
Streetsboro Blues Live
then the gentle landing with some live Dire Staits



Maybe the best track from the best live album from the best white blues band of the 70s.

i think you could be right

That opening riff always makes me smile knowing what's to follow! 
Lord, could that man play!
Had this album back in HS and wore it out. Keep thinking of replacing - buying the CD but not readily available and price high. Maybe I’ll spring for it yet - life is short.
This is STILL one of if not the best live blues/r&b/RnR albums ever recorded.  It never gets old.  gave it a 9, but that may be an underrating.
I woke up this morning and half them Senate seats were blue.
RBG is on a roll with this set. Just the right antidote. Can’t even go out to the ballpark. Who doesn’t miss popcorn, Cracker Jacks, and $15 beers.

Nice set of serious guitar slingers, Sunny Landreth, Adrian Belew, Dick Dale with Stevie Ray Vaughan (wow right!), and Greg Allman. What a treat.
 
Same set PLUS Jimi thrown in for good measure....LLRP!!

Serene set of guitarists. Thanks @Bill.
Nice set of serious guitar slingers, Sunny Landreth, Adrian Belew, Dick Dale with Stevie Ray Vaughan (wow right!), and Greg Allman. What a treat.
Please play more Allman Brothers!  Especially early Brothers! I love Warren and Derek, but Duane and Dickey were the best!
Love this guitar legends run Bill!
Well Merry Guitar Christmas!!

(Sonny Landreth to Adrian Belew to Stevie Ray Vaughn to Jimmy Hendrix to Duane Allman)
Yes sir!
What? 
Only one before me? 
For this? 
This band is to southern country blues rock what Mozart, Schubert, et al were to classical music.
