Elmore James – Shake Your Moneymaker – Lyrics of sexual liberation.

elmore james

Elmore was a genius on the slide guitar. This song ‘Shake Your Money Maker’ has all the exuberance of great Chicago Blues.

While Britain was prim and proper the black Americans had a lively, free sexuality. It fuelled the sixties liberalisation!

“Shake Your Moneymaker”
Shake your moneymaker
Shake your moneymaker
You got to shake your moneymaker, yeah
Shake your moneymaker
You got to shake your moneymaker
And then…

I got a gal that lives up on a hill
I got a gal that lives up on a hill
Says she’ll let me roll her
But I don’t believe she will

She won’t shake her moneymaker
Won’t shake her moneymaker
I want to roll her I keep beggin’
She won’t shake her moneymaker
Won’t shake her money maker
She won’t…

[break]

I got a girl, but she just won’t be true
I got a girl, but she just won’t be true
Won’t let me do the one good thing I tell her to

She won’t shake her moneymaker
Won’t shake her moneymaker
Won’t shake her moneymaker
She won’t shake her moneymaker
Won’t shake her moneymaker
She won’t…

I'd like to hear from you...
