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 »

My baby told me, says, "You don't want me no mo' "
My baby told me, says, "You don't want me no mo' "
Well, I'm tellin' you baby and I can't stand to see you go

But you woke up this mornin',
Packed ev'thing an' leave
I'm standin' there shaken,
Like a leaf upon a tree

My baby told me,
Says, "Ya don't want me no mo' "
Well I'm tellin' you baby
But I can't stand to see you go

You better get a hold to yourself, baby,
Hide an'close the door
Before you make your daddy pull,
Out his .44

You know you told me,
Says you don't want me no mo'
Well I'm tellin' you baby,
That I can't stand to see you go
