I Can't Be Satisfied

soundclip


by McKinley Morganfield a.k.a. Muddy Waters
recording 1948

from Muddy Waters on Chess 1948-1951, Vol. 1 (Vogue 600052), copyright notice

Well I'm goin' away to leave
Won't be back no more
Goin' back down south, child
Don't you want to go?
Woman I'm troubled, I be all worried in mind
Well baby I just can't be satisfied
And I just can't keep from cryin'

Well I feel like snappin'
Pistol in your face
I'm gonna let some graveyard
Lord be your resting place
Woman I'm troubled, I be all worried in mind
Well baby I can never be satisfied
And I just can't keep from cryin'

Well now all in my sleep
Hear my doorbell ring
Looking for my baby
I couldn't see not a doggone thing
Woman I was troubled, I was all worried in mind
Well honey I could never be satisfied
And I just couldn't keep from cryin'

Well I know my little old baby
She gonna jump and shout
That old train be late man, Lord
And I come walking out
I be troubled, I be all worried in mind
Well honey ain't no way in the world could we be satisfied
And I just can't keep from crying

__________
Note: Muddy recorded this song for the Aristocrat label, the forerunner of the famous Chess label, for the first time in April 1948. The song was created from two other songs Muddy recorded with Alan Lomax in 1941/1942 on the Stovall plantation for the Library of Congress, "I Be's Troubled" and "I Be Bound To Write To You". The record, with "I Feel Like Going Home" on the flip side, was in instant hit and the 3,000 78's sold out in little over a day. The record rose tot the no. 11 position on both the "Juke Box" and "Best Seller R&B" charts. Muddy was 33 when he finally broke through.
