Done Somebody Wrong

Done Somebody Wrong
by Elmore James
Copyright 1960 (renewed) by Arc Music Corp.

The barrel-house told me, my baby caught that train 'n gone
The barrel-house told me, my baby caught that train 'n gone
It was all my fault, I musta' did somebody wrong.

Everything that happens, you know I am to blame.
Everything that happens, you know I am to blame.
I'm gonna find myself a doctor, perhaps my luck will change.

Ah, my mamma she told me, these days will surely come.
I wouldn't listen to her, had to have my fun.
The barrel-house told me, my baby caught that train 'n gone.
But it's all my fault, I musta' done somebody wrong, oh yeah.

The barrel-house told me, my baby caught that train 'n gone
The barrel-house told me, my baby caught that train 'n gone
It was all my fault, I musta' did somebody wrong. Oh play the blues...

I believe Elmore James began this song by singing, "The bell has tolled, my baby done caught that train and gone."

My score:

I think on the Fillmore set Gregg says "The bell has tolled" as was posted. Ellmore James clearly sings "The bell done toned, my baby caught that train and gone" repeat "Was all my fault musta done somebody wrong", later Gregg uses "perhaps" whereas James uses "maybe" i.e. "I'm gonna find me a doctor, maybe my luck will change" I listen to both, everyday..through a bose in a Cadillac. The rest has some variances but minor ones, I guess...or else I haven't obsessed as much about those as the ones in this discussion. What i find interesting is the riff usage that DA uses of Elmore's.. Elmore was awfully talented, DA cleaned it up, pumped it through that 50 and a grail (or two) and changed the face of music. Wail on Skydog !

Must of done somebody wrong. "I wonder who..." you can hear that being said in the background, after Duane (i think) introduces it on the filmore east conert. I love the transition from harmonica to guitar on that filmore version. perfect.

I am almost certain that Gregg was saying the Bell Man told me at the '06 Wanee Festival.

I STAND CORRETED ...SORRY BOUT THAT ...iT'S "bARREL HOUSE" ON MOST LYRICS YOU FIND ON ELMORE JAMES SITES

My score:

The Actual Elmore James lyrics are " The bell just toned" but Gregg sings " The bell has tolled"

I've seen the lyrics represented both ways, but my vote goes to "The bell has tolled".

I don't think Barrell House is the correct words. Simply because a barrell house in olden times was a term for a watering hole. It doesn't make sense when used in this context.
