    08. BRING IT TO JEROME (by Bo Diddley)

    BRING IT TO JEROME*(Ellas ‘Bo Diddley’ McDaniel) [Thanks to ‘idiootti’ for song i.d.]

    Bring it on home
    Bring it to Jerome

    All you pretty women
    Bring it into my home
    You don’t want to worry
    I won’t do you no wrong

    Bring it on ho-ome
    Bring it to Jerome
    Bring it on ho-ome
    Bring it to Jerome

    Look there over yonder
    What’s this mess I see
    Your man walkin’ down on me, baby
    You’re runnin’ after me

    uh-Bring it on home
    Bring it to Jerome, baby
    Bring it on ho-ome
    Bring it to Jerome

    All the light turned out in your bedroom
    What’d I say
    I’ll meet you, baby
    Can easy do that
    But please do what I say

    Bring it on ho-ome
    Bring it to Jerome
    Bring it on ho-ome
    Bring it to Jerome
    Mm, yeah!

    *B’side of ‘Pretty Thing’, Bo’s 3rd single, released in 1955 on Checker 827 - 7” 45 & 10” 78. Jerome Green was Bo’s maracas player.
    Bob Dylan and the Hawks (later, “The Band”) jam a version of this with just the “Bring it on home” line repeated over and over with Dylan improvising a few lines in two places. It’s titled “Bring It On Home” on the bootleg, there is no official release of this.
