And he told me... I didn't know nothing about how to play no guitar at all. He said "Hey, go home. Take my advice. You go home. You get that.. straight. You know what I'm talking about? Put that pick down. You think I'm scolding you? You a grown man, Hubert - listen to me!" I went home, man. I went to my basement. And I'm going to tell you something... I was thinking about what Wolf said. He said "Hey, put the pick down." I put the pick down, man. I put the pick down and started using... fingers, you know what I mean? - Hubert Sumlin, on how Howlin' Wolf introduced him to fingerpicking.

When the Levee Breaks: mislabelled song on JSP collection
« on: February 01, 2015, 11:39:49 AM »
Hey everyone,

I was just listening to the JSP boxset "When the Levee Breaks: Mississippi Blues Rare Cuts," and absolutely fell in love with track 23 on CD D, which is almost certainly not Good Boy Blues by Arthur Petties, as JSP says it is.

Does anyone know what the song actually is? It's sung largely in falsetto and the lyrics are:

I wonder who's got my sweetie x 2
And she's got her Alabama Jelly x 2
I'm gonna buy me a pistol x 2
Just as long as I am tall x 2
If I don't get the woman I love x 2
Don't want no woman at all x 2
Gonna write her a letter x 2
I'm gonna mail it the (???) x 2
When this North wind blows x 2
It's going to blow the (???) everywhere x 2
I'm going to Louisiana x 2
I'm going to get me a new girl x 2
I'm going to call her Susie Ann x 2

Which is way different from Good Boy Blues. http://weeniecampbell.com/yabbse/index.php?topic=235.0

Thanks for any help.

If you use the search at the top Brad & punch in the song title & etc you'll probably find the JSP thread where we talked about it but this is Sunny Southern Blues by Big Road Webster Taylor. I actually play this song!

Thanks! Looks like the thread you're referring to is no longer saved here. Glad it's still in the collective knowledge.

Best

I agree Brad, isn't it an odd, pretty song?

I searched for 'Sunny Southern Blues' & that found another thread where I answered this for someone else, ha! It looks like the JSP thread is still there too if you want to check it out but I don't think there'd be any more info. Webster Taylor only has one other song or something like that

odd.. I searched for the same thing. I will blame this on me being bad at the Internet.

thanks again.
