Leads the man around by her apron strings
If it wasn't for powder and that store bought hair
That woman of mine wouldn't have gone nowhere
Nowhere

I've got the St. Louie blues, I'm blue as I can be
That woman of mine got a heart like a rock in the sea
If she'd a been all right she wouldn't have gone so far from me

Take Out Some Insurance

recording of 1961

from Jimmy Reed at Carnegie Hall (Suite Beat 3001), copyright notice

If you leave me, baby, say you won't be back
That would be the end of me, 'cause I'd have a heart attack
You better get some insurance on me, baby, take out some insurance on me, baby
'Cause if you ever, ever say goodbye, I'm gonna haul right off and die

Darlin', how I love you, long as I got breath
If we part, I know sweetheart, it would worry me to death
You better get some insurance on me, baby, take out some insurance on me, baby
'Cause if you ever, ever say goodbye, I'm gonna haul right off and die

Don't get no sick and accident, 'cause I'm healthy as can be
Now, if ya got any sense, you'd take the hint and get a Penn Life1, on me
You don't know me, baby, like I know myself,
I couldn't live if you should give your love to someone else
Better get some insurance on me, baby, take out some insurance on me, baby
'Cause if you ever, ever say goodbye, I'm gonna haul right off and die

Tell it all over myself
You, itty, bitty, pretty li'l thing
And I'm into somethin' else

'Cause you somethin' else
Yeah, you somethin' else
Yeah, you pretty li'l thing
I'm into somethin' else

When I first met you baby
Nothin' but a child
You done made me love ya baby
Ya 'bout to drive me wild

'Cause you somethin' else
Aww, you somethin' else
Yeah, you pretty little thing
I'm into somethin' else

Honey, you ain't no stallion
But you still look fine
Itty, bitty, pretty li'l thing
'Bout to drive me outta my mind

'Cause you somethin' else
Aww, you somethin' else
Yeah, you pretty little thing
I'm into somethin' else

You Upset My Mind

soundclip


by Jimmy Reed / Ewart Abner
recording of 19

from Classic Recordings (Tomato 71660), copyright notice

I'm in love wit'cha baby, tryin' a-keep from cryin'
Now, I'm in love wit'cha baby, I'm tryin' a-keep from cryin'
Oh, you know I love you girl, oh you upset my mind

Well now, tell me if you love me, let me know in time
Now, tell me if you love me, let me know in time
Oh, you know I love you baby, girl, you upset my mind

I 'member when I'd takin' you by the arm,
An' we never stop a-walkin', till I walked ya home
Oh, I got to see ya baby, I don't even have a dime
I'm gonna walk to ya baby, girl, you upset my mind
