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 »

High and lonesome, be on your merry way
High and lonesome, be on your merry way
Well now, you're back a-wanting me and I'm not gonna let you stay

Well now, ya went 'round the corner, now
Come back soon
Still gonna meet me you just, waitin' 'til noon

I'm high and lonesome
Be on your merry way
Well now, you packed up, want to leave me
And I'm not gonna let you stay

Well now, tell me, tell me baby, now now
What's wrong with you?
Don't treat me darlin', like you, like you used to do

I'm high and lonesome
Be on your merry way
Well now, you're packed up want to leave me
And I'm not gonna let you stay
