Ninety Nine
Sonny Boy Williamson Lyrics


Darling you know exactly what happened, last year just about this time
Yes you know exactly what happened, last year just about this time
You asked me for one hundred dollars, and I didn't have but ninety nine

Yes I'm in love with the little girl, just because she's so nice and kind
I'm in love, I'm in love with the little girl, just because she's so nice and kind
I was so sorry when she asked me for one hundred dollars,
I couldn't give her but ninety nine

Yes my baby taken sick on July twenty-nine
Yes the one I love she taken sick on July twenty-nine
Her doctor billed her four hundred dollars,
And I didn't have but three hundred and ninety nine

Maybe the best blues song of all time. It's amazing how many different rhythms Sonny Boy Williamson could pull off. This one just makes me want to jump. So good!

Ding Dong

lorenzo stortoni

Agreed!

Obese Rubber duck

So catchy:D

Brian Smith

This is amongst my top five blues records of all time. A Chess master - the sound of that band is to die for. Sonny Boys vocal is so moving and his harp rivals (if not equals) that other master, Little Walter. Thanks for uploading.

Ben W-King

This is how good playing straight into a mic can sound.

Philharpo
