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 »

Wake up at daybreak, I just can't sleep at night
I wake up at daybreak, I just can't sleep at night
I'm rollin' an'that's because, my baby got me uptight

I'm like a tumblin' weed, baby, I tumble 'cause I'm all alone
I'm like a tumblin' weed, baby, I tumble 'cause I'm all alone
You know I'd feel better, baby, if ya called me on the phone

Don't you say a word, baby, long as I know you're on the line
Don't say nothin', baby, I'm gonna say on the line
Let me do all the talkin', I've got so much on my mind

I hear ya!

I wake up at daybreak, I just can't sleep at night
I wake up at daybreak, I just can't sleep at night
I keep rollin' an' cryin', because my baby got me uptight

Like a tumblin' weed baby, I tumble 'cause I'm all alone
I'm like a tumblin' weed baby, I tumble 'cause I'm all alone
I would feel much better, if ya'd call me on the phone

Don't say a word, baby, as long as you on the line
Don't say nothin' , baby, just stay on the line
Let me do all the talkin', now honey, I've got somethin' on my mind
