Jimi Hendrix - Red House - Woodstock 1969

On August 15, 1969, the Woodstock music festival opens on a patch of farmland in White Lake, a hamlet in the upstate New York town of Bethel.

Promoters John Roberts, Joel Rosenman, Artie Kornfield and Michael Lang originally envisioned the festival as a way to raise funds to build a recording studio and rock-and-roll retreat near the town of Woodstock, New York. The longtime artists’ colony was already a home base for Bob Dylan and other musicians. Despite their relative inexperience, the young promoters managed to sign a roster of top acts, including the Jefferson Airplane, the Who, the Grateful Dead, Sly and the Family Stone, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival and many more.


There's a Red House over yonder

That's where my baby stays

There's a Red House over yonder, baby

That's where my baby stays

Well, I ain't been home to see my baby,

in ninety nine and one half days.

'Bout time I see her,

Wait a minute something's wrong here

The key won't unlock the door.

Wait a minute something's wrong baby,

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 here no more.

That's all right, I still got my guitar

Look out now . . .

I might as well go on back down

go back 'cross yonder over the hill

I might as well go back over yonder

way back over yonder 'cross the hill,

(That's where I came from.)

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

I know her sister will!
