Cover Version

“Blues With A Feeling” (written by Rabon Tarrant) A3 track included on the album “The Paul Butterfield Blues Band”

Blues with a Feeling” is a blues song written and first recorded by Rabon Tarrant with Jack McVea and His All Stars in 1947, as the B-side of “Slowly Goin’ Crazy Blues”. Although the original release was commercially unsuccessful, the song later became an important hit for Little Walter, with whom it is usually identified.

Walter transformed the tune from Tarrant’s jump blues-oriented style to a Chicago blues harmonica classic. It became an important piece for blues harp players and a variety of musicians have recorded their own renditions.

Released on Elektra Records ( EKL 294) in October 1965

Lyrics :

Blues with a feelin’
That’s what I have today
Blues with a feelin’
That’s what I have today
I’m gonna find my baby
If it takes all night and day

What a lonesome feelin’
When your by yourself
What a lonesome feelin’
When your by yourself
When the one that you’re lovin’
Have gone away livin’

Girl you know I love you baby
I wanted the reason why
You only left me baby
Then you left me here to cry
Blues with a feelin’
That’s what I have today
I’m gonna find my baby
If it takes all night and day
