Subject: Old blues song done by Foghat in the 70's
From: cjmatin@swbell.net
Date: 03 Aug 97 - 10:54 PM

The 70's/80's group Foghat recorded an old blues song on one of their early albums called "I Just Wanna Make Love To You." I have long since lost the vinyl and haven't had a chance to purchase the CD. I was wondering if anyone knew the original artist/composer and had the lyrics handy

Thanx

I believe this was written by Willie Dixon and performed by Muddy Waters. Another possibility is John Lee Hooker. Sorry I can't be more sure of it, I don't have a copy.

On Foghat's albums, they credit Willie Dixon. Lots of others have recorded it.

14 years for the answer. That's got to be a record.

I Just Wanna Make Love To You
(Willie Dixon)

i don't want you to be my slave
i don't want you to work all day
i don't want you to be sad and blue
'cos i just wanna make love to you
love to you, love to you

i don't want you to drive my car
i don't want you to go too far
i don't want you to be true
'cos i just wanna make love to you
love to you, love to you

i can tell by the way that you switch and walk
i can tell by the way that you treat your man
i can't love you baby it's a crying shame

i don't want you to be true
i don't want you to be blue
i don't want you make no sacrifice
i just wanna make love to you

i don't want you to be my slave
i don't want you to work all day
i don't want you to be sad and blue
'cos i just wanna make love to you
love to you, love to you
love to you, makin' love to you

love, love, love
makin' love
love to you
love to you
love to you
makin' love
makin' love

Here's the Muddy Waters version:

I Just Want To Make Love To You
(Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon)

I don't want you to be no slave
I don't want you to work all day
I don't want you to be true
I just want to make love to you

I don't want you to wash my clothes
I don't want you to keep my home
I don't want your money too
I just want to make love to you

Well I can see by the way that you switch and walk
And I can tell by the way that you baby talk
And I know by the way that you treat your man
I wanna love you baby, it's a cryin' shame

I don't want you to bake my bread
I don't want you to make my bed
I don't want you cause I'm sad and blue
I just want to make love to you

by Willie Dixon

Here's the Foghat version:

I Just Wanna Make Love To You
(W. Dixon)

I don't want you, cook my bread,
I don't want you, make my bed,
I don't want your money too,
I just wanna make love to you.

I don't want you, be no slave,
I don't want you, work all day,
I don't want you to be sad and blue,
I just wanna make love to you.

I can tell by the way that you baby talk,
I can see by the way that you switch and walk,
I can tell by the way that you treat your man,
But I could love you baby, it's a cryin' shame.

I don't want you, wash my clothes,
I don't want you, keep a home,
I don't want you to be true,
I just wanna make love to you.

I don't want you, be no slave,
I don't want you, work all day,
I don't want you to be true,
I just wanna make love to you.

I don't want you, keep a home,
I don't want you, wash my clothes,
I don't want you to be true,
I just wanna make love...
