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'm leavin', mama cryin' won't make me stay
I'm leavin', your cryin' won't make me stay
You should have thought when you were doin' these things, one day you would had-a pay

I'm sittin' around cryin', honey, cryin' my heart out
I'm sittin' around here, baby, woman, cryin' my heart out
Though I'm just a country boy, woman, I don't know what it's all about

That's why I'm leavin', the cryin' won't make me stay
That's why I'm leavin', woman, the cryin' won't make me stay
You should have thought when you were doin' these thing, one day you would had-a pay
