Ram Jam - Black Betty


In 1977, the rock band Ram Jam—which included former Starstruck and Lemon Pipers guitarist Bill Bartlett—re-released an edit of the Starstruck recording of the song with producers Jerry Kasenetz and Jeff Katz under Epic Records. The song became an instant hit with listeners, as it reached number 18 on the singles charts in the United States and the top ten in the UK and Australia. 





Lyrics

Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Black Betty had a child, bam-ba-lam The damn thing gone wild, bam-ba-lam Said it weren't none of mine, bam-ba-lam The damn thing gone blind, bam-ba-lam I said oh, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam

Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam She really gets me high, bam-ba-lam You know that's no lie, bam-ba-lam She's so rock steady, bam-ba-lam And she's always ready, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam

Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam She's from Birmingham, bam-ba-lam Way down in Alabam', bam-ba-lam Well, she's shakin' that thing, bam-ba-lam Boy, she makes me sing, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam Whoa, Black Betty, bam-ba-lam
