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 »

Don't say nothin' if you don't know what you're talkin' about
Don't say nothin' if you don't know what you're talkin' about
Don't worry that 'bout your friend, knew just what you got

Don't start to tell your business, tellin' it to your friends
Don't start tellin' your business, to your friends
Gonna tell ya right now, that's where your troubles begin

If ya don't believe me, try it for yourself
If ya don't believe me, try it for yourself
If ya tell your friends, they go on an'tell someone else

When you're doin' alright, your friends are jealous of you
When you're doin' alright, your friends they jealous of you
They-a tell a lie on ya, try to break your heart in two
