Jimmy Reed

Mathis James "Jimmy" Reed (September 6, 1925 – August 29, 1976) was an American blues musician and songwriter, notable for bringing his distinctive style of blues to mainstream audiences. Reed was a major player in the field of electric blues, as opposed to the more acoustic-based sound of many of his contemporaries. His lazy, slack-jawed singing, piercing harmonica and hypnotic guitar patterns were one of the blues' most easily identifiable sounds in the 1950s and 1960s, and had a significant impact on many rock and roll artists who followed, such as Elvis Presley, Billy Gibbons and the Rolling Stones. more »

If you gotta cry, baby, little girl, cry before I go
You gotta cry, baby, little girl, cry before I go
There ain't nothin' you can say, a-make me stay another day

Your my lovin', whoa, I was so green
I gave ya all of my lovin', whoa, I was so green
Well, now I know the score, Jimmy Reed, got to split the scene

Watch you cryin', baby, give me a reason I shouldn't go
Watch you cry, baby, give me a reason I shouldn't go
If it makes any sense to me, baby, I'll come walkin' back in that door
