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 »

Mother had a welfare rent
We lived in a freezin' up house
The only time we saw some meat
Was when we chopped 'em out

Hand me down clothes
Had holes in and out
Now I am a rich man
So happy I could shout

Over the hump, no more bump
Over the hump, no more bump
Now I am a rich man
No more bump for me

I once saw a woman, I thought that I could date
She backed to look at me and asked about my gig
I bought her a sweater, not knowin' what she think
She threw it back at me, now, now I can buy a mink

Over the hump, no more bump
Over the hump, no more bump
Now I am a rich man, no more bump for me

(I hear ya Jimmy)

I was twenty-one, went to buy a beer
The bartender looked at me, an' said "tramp get out-a here"
I took back my money, wiped the sweat from my face
Now I am so angry, I think I'll buy the place

Over the hump, no more bump
Over the hump, no more bump
Now I am a rich man, there's no more bump for me

(I hear ya fine)
