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 »

I got a Eldorado Cadillac
Wit's a spare tire on the back
I got the charge account at Goldblatt
But I ain't got you

I got a tavern and a package store
Don't matter where I go
You keep the ring in my nose
But I ain't got you

I got a tavern an'a package store
I hit the numbers, four-forty four
I got a mojo and don't you know?
I'm all dressed up, no place to go

I got a-women to the right of me
I got a-women to the left of me
I got a-women's all around me
But I ain't got you

I got a-women on the right of me
I got a-women to the left of me
I got a-women all around me
But I ain't got you
But I ain't got you
But I ain't got you
But I ain't got you
