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 gonna move, way out on the outskirts of town
I'm gonna move, way out on the outskirts of town
Baby, no I don't want nobody, woooo, always hangin' 'round

You know I'm gonna buy my groceries
And bring 'em home everyday
I'll never stop that grocery boy
And keep him away

That's why I'm gonna move, way out on the outskirts of town
Well then I won't have nobody
Always hangin' 'round

May seem funny, honey
Funny, funny can be
If we have any children
I want 'em to look all like me

That's why I'm gonna move, way out on the outskirts of town
Well then I won't have nobody
Always hangin' 'round
