Red House

One of my favorite blues tunes. Written by Jimi Hendrix. Performed by so many blues artists since then... Jeff Beck, Eric Gales, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert King, Buddy Guy.
One of my favorite versions is done by Eric Johnson / Mike Stern.

Well there's a red house over yonder
That's where my baby stays
Lord there's a red house over yonder
Oh that's where my baby stays
I ain't been home to see my baby
In ninety-nine and one half days
Wait a minute, something wrong here
My key won't unlock this door
Wait a minute, something wrong here
Lord have mercy this
key won't unlock this door
(something wrong here)
I gotta bad, bad feeling
My baby don't live here no more
(That's ok, I still got my guitar...look out!)
Well I might as well look back over yonder
Way back up over the hill
Lord I might as well go back over yonder
Way back yonder across the hill
Even though my baby don't love me no more
I know her sister will

You've really created a mood with the photo and the lyrics lean into gloomy with a smile.

the disappointment inherent in the lyrics is well represented by the gloom of your image....certainly the song is a great platform for flashy guitar riffing..
