MY REAL GONE ROCKET
(Jackie Brenston)
JACKIE BRENSTON (CHESS 1469, 1951)
Recorded at SUN, 706 Union, Memphis Tennessee

You heard of my mighty rocket, it was really great
I'm a real gone daddy and I'm really straight
A real gone daddy and I travel day and night
With my real gone rocket, I know everything's all right
When you see my rocket come pulling in
Don't ask me where I'm goin', just as me where I've been
I'm a real gone daddy, love the life I live
With my real gone rocket, I sure get a wonderful thrill
Blow your horn man, blow!

When I cruise through your town, like the great North-Western
You can tell everybody, that was mighty Jackie Brenston
I'm a real gone daddy, love the life I live
My baby and I, we sure get a wonderful thrill

If you see a long yellow streak of all fine smoke
That's my rocket pulling out, that's all she wrote
I'm long gone baby, know the reason why
I'm long gone baby, no time to say goodbye
