Big Boss Man
Jimmy Reed Lyrics


Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call
Well, you ain't so big, you're just tall, that's all

Got me working, boss man, working 'round the clock
I want me a drink of water, but you won't let Jimmy stop
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain't so big, you just tall, that's all

Well, I'm gonna get me a boss man, one gonna treat me right
Work hard in the day time, rest easy at night
Big boss man, can't you hear me when I call?
Well, you ain't so big, you're just tall, that's all

Saw him in Tulare Ca around 1959 OR 60. He was wearing a Lime Green Suit. Some things you never forget.

Man there wouldn't be much music today if it weren't for these old bluesmen. I wish they would've received the credit they deserved

JImmy had epilepsy. Mama Reed would help him remember lyrics. Listen to "You Got Me Dizzy" and you can hear her in the background telling him the lyrics.
