Charley Patton

Charley Patton (between April 1887 and 1891 – April 28, 1934), also known as Charlie Patton, was an American Delta blues musician. He is considered by many to be the "Father of the Delta Blues", and is credited with creating an enduring body of American music and personally inspiring just about every Delta blues man (Palmer, 1995). Musicologist Robert Palmer considers him among the most important musicians that America produced in the twentieth century. Many sources, including musical releases and his gravestone, spell his name “Charley” even though the musician himself spelled his name "Charlie." more »

Baby saddle my pony, saddle up my black mare 
I'm gonna find a rider, baby, in the world somewhere 

Hello central, what's the matter with your line? 
Come a storm last night, tore the wire down 

Got a brand new Shetland, man, already trained
Just get in the saddle, tighten up on your reins 

And a brown-skinned woman like somethin' fit to eat 
But a jet black woman, don't put your hands on me 

Took my baby, to meet the mornin' train 
And the blues come down, baby, like showers o' rain 

I got somethin' to tell you when I get a chance 
I don't wanna marry, just wanna be your man
