You Need Love
Muddy Waters Lyrics


Well now, let me tell you people about a low-down thing or two
You know I just can't stand that low-down way she do, but hey
You gonna need
You gonna need my help, I say
Well, you know I won't have to worry
I'll have everything little girl, comin' my way

Well, you know you leave home in the morning, you don't come back
You don't come back until night
You won't won't cook me no food, and you still say you treat me right
But hey, you're gonna need,
You're gonna need my help, I say
Well, you know I won't have to worry
I'll have everything little girl, comin' my way

Oh, I ain't going to worry about her no more, man
All right, little walker

Well, you know you get up in the morning, babe with your face all
All full of frowns
You know I ask you, "what's the matter?" you say "I'm sorry"
"Puttin' you down" but hey

You gonna need
You're gonna need my help, I say
Well, you know I won't have to worry
I'll have everything little girl, comin' my way

Can't believe he didn't credit Led Zeppelin for writing this song 7 years later

Kurt Van Der Bogarde

@Brian Newell to be honest I doubt my mum has heard of any of them.

Brian Newell

Remember all yall, Willie Dixon was the first member of Led Zeppelin. He just didn't know it at the time. :-) Man wrote about a third of the band's tunes.

@John McNeill That's BS, though. Zep did some stuff, but things like You Need Love, they barely used anything. The songs aren't even comparable, really. And compared to their entire catalog? It's a very few songs.
Plus, all the folks they used music from should thank them. Nobody would have ever heard of "You Need Love" without Led Zeppelin. Dixon's family is thanking them right to the bank.

Pacfanweb

If by "a third of the tunes" you mean "Parts of 2", then you're correct. They barely used anything from "You Need Love". "I Can't Quit You Baby" was much more of a copy.

@pawgrespecter that man is in the rock and roll hall of Fame you ass clown
