Lyric "Jackson Blues"

Now when I left out of Jackson
My baby was standin' in her do'
Now when I left out of Jackson
I rode that *M&O

Now, my baby like the Chevrolet
But I believe I'll buy a V8 Fo'
She say, 'Is he too fast
To try to hold in the road?'

Well, I'm goin' back to Jackson
Good old Jackson, Tennessee
I can't do no good up here
I've gotten the jinx on me

A-yon' come my baby
I can tell by the way she walk
I wouldn't know her so well
But I can tell by the way she talks

Oh, now tell me baby
Sweet, now wha'cha want me to do?
You think that I can love you
And be yo' little doggie?

Well, mother told me, an' told me
My father he sat down an' cried
She say, 'You too young-a-man, son
To have them many women on yo' side

Sonny Boy Williamson

Alex or Aleck Miller (né Ford, possibly December 5, 1912– May 24, 1965),[4] known later in his career as Sonny Boy Williamson, was an American blues harmonica player, singer and songwriter.[5] He was an early and influential blues harp stylist who recorded successfully in the 1950s and 1960s. Miller used various names, including Rice Miller and Little Boy Blue, before calling himself Sonny Boy Williamson, which was also the name of a popular Chicago blues singer and harmonica player. To distinguish the two, Miller has been referred to as Sonny Boy Williamson II.
