Gary Moore - "Red House" - Live 2004 (Amazing Guitar Performance)


Gary Moore performing at The Wembley Stadium an amazing "Red House" cover by Jimi Hendrix.



The Strat Pack: Live in Concert is a film of a September 24, 2004, concert featuring Joe Walsh, Gary Moore, Brian May (playing the Sunburst Stratocaster, in the opening set, rather than his signature guitar Red Special ), Hank Marvin, David Gilmour, Mike Rutherford and many more, marking the 50th Anniversary of the Fender Stratocaster guitar.


"Red House" is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and one of the first songs recorded in 1966 by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. It has the musical form of a conventional twelve-bar blues and features Hendrix's guitar playing. He developed the song prior to forming the Experience and was inspired by earlier blues songs.


"Red House" was first released on the British edition of Hendrix's debut album Are You Experienced in May 1967 (for the American album release, previously released Experience singles were used in its place). A second similar take was eventually released in the US in July 1969 on the American Smash Hits compilation.


The song was a fixture of Hendrix concerts throughout his career. Although the lyrics and basic structure were followed, his performances usually varied from the original recording. Many were recorded and continue to be released officially for the first time, including on Miami Pop Festival (2013) and Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival (2015). "Red House" has also been performed and recorded by a variety of blues and other artists.





Lyrics


Ah yeah!

There's a red house over yonder,

That's where my baby stays

Lord, there's a red house over yonder

Lord, that's where my baby stays

I ain't been home to see my baby

In ninety nine and one half days


Wait a minute, something's wrong here

The key won't unlock this door

Wait a minute, something's wrong, lord, have mercy

This key won't unlock this door,

Something's goin' on here

I have a bad bad feeling

That my baby don't live her no more


Well, I might as well go back over yonder,

Way back up on the hill

That's something to do

Lord, I might as well go back over yonder,

Way back yonder cross the hill

'Cause if my baby don't love me no more

I know her sister will

Yeah
