Don't Start Me Talkin'
Sonny Boy Williamson Lyrics

Well, I'm goin' down to Rosie's, stop at Fannie Mae's
Gonna tell Fannie what I heard her boyfriend say

Don't start me talkin', I'll tell her everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', 'cause somebody's got to go

Jack give his wife two dollars, go downtown and get some margarine
Gets out on the streets, ol' George stopped her
He knocked her down and blackened her eye
She gets back home, tell her husband a lie

Don't start me talkin, I'll tell everything I know
I'm gonna break up this signifyin', somebody's got to go

She borrowed some money, go to the beauty shop
Jim honked his horn, she begin to stop
Said, take me, baby, around the block
I'm goin to the beauty shop, where I can get my hair sot

Don't start me talkin', I'll tell everything I know
Well, to break up this signifyin', oh, somebody's got to go

After Trumpet Records folded, on August 12, 1955, Sonny Boy Williamson II had his first recording session for Checker Records. "Don't Start Me Talkin'" was recorded at these sessions. Backing Williamson ( vocals and harmonica ) were Otis Spann on piano , Muddy Waters and Jimmy Rogers on guitar , Willie Dixon on bass , and Fred Below on drums . [

Gerry Tenney

Thanks for list of "sidemen". Quite a group.

Sinclair Cole

Who could be giving thumbs down on this. Can't imagine.


Someone musically challenged, perhaps?

Benny Robles

Sonny boy. The harmonica legend.!! Nobody can beat him.!!

Mysterious J 123

Very soulful voice.

Bob Aldo

Rice Miller ("Sonny Boy Williamson") was a blues genius. And his backing musicians at Chess/Checker were great - together producing blues classic after blues classic..
