Dust My Broom

    Added 01/14/19
ZZ Top (1979)-(Cover)
Words & Music by Elmore James (1959). From The Album "Degüello"
"Dust My Broom" is a blues song originally recorded as "I Believe I'll Dust My Broom" by American blues artist Robert Johnson in 1936.
“I believe I’ll dust my broom”, as both a phrase and a song, has been a blues staple for 75 years. Versions of the song’s melody and iconic phrase “I believe I’ll” have been around even longer. The phrase “dust my broom”, while it has been subject to minor debate, means to leave and not come back. Perhaps unsurprisingly as blues staples go, the widely popular “I Believe I’ll Dust My Broom” was an original Robert Johnson tune, first recorded during his “San Antonio” session in the winter of 1936.
