About I'm Tore Down

"I'm Tore Down" or "Tore Down" is a blues song first recorded in 1961 by Freddie King (who was then known as "Freddy" King) for Federal Records. Pianist Sonny Thompson, who played on several early King songs, is credited as the songwriter. When Federal released it as single in 1961, with the instrumental "Sen-Sa-Shun" as the B-side, it reached number five on Billboard's Hot R&B Sides singles chart. Federal parent company King Records included the song on King's first album Freddy King Sings (1961). In 1971, King recorded a longer version for his Shelter Records album Getting Ready... As a popular tune with guitarists, it has been recorded by many blues and other musicians. Freddie King's brother and bandmate, Benny Turner, also recorded this song (with special guest Otis Clay) and it appears on his 2017 release My Brother's Blues - a tribute to Freddie.

Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this
When my baby can't be found

Well, I went to the river
To jump in
My baby showed up and said
'I will tell you when'

Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this
When my baby can't be found

I love you baby
With all my heart an' soul
A love like mine will never grow old
I love you in the mornin' 
And in the evenin', too
But ev'rytime you leave me
I get mad with you

Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this
When my baby can't be found

I love you, baby with all my might
A love like mine is out of sight
I'll lie for you if you want me to
I really don't believe your love is true

Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this
When my baby can't be found

A-well I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I'm tore down
I'm almost level with the ground
Well, I feel like this
When my baby can't be found.
