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 »

You look like your high and lonesome
I believe ya want to rollin' drummer
A'fore ya do somethin' smart
A let's go boogyin' in the dark
You got me you know
A honey don't cha let me go

Told you once before
You don't know how to go
Before you do somethin' smart
Let's go boogyin' in the dark
You got me you know
A honey don't you let me go

Said it and I don't mean maybe
Ain't that lovin' you baby?
Honey, 'fore you get in a speed
Let's go rockin' with Reed
You got me you know
A honey don't cha let me go
