Monday Morning Blues; Help Yourself (Not the Tom Jones song!)

Jimmy Reed • Help Yourself

Seriously, this song could come straight out of a Dharma talk! Actually, it sort of reminds me a little of the Buddha's last words. The irony of this song is that he (Jimmy Reed, not Buddha...) was a drunk, and usually recorded drunk, so I had some trouble making of the last verse. The chorus and first verse are good, though!

You can help yourself, baby
All you gotta do is try sometimes
Then you won't have to go around, baby
Honey, worrying other people's minds

Well, now, you know my doctor told me
He said, "Jimmy, you can help yourself
You don't have to go around, baby
Worrying everybody else."
