Interesting sideline with deeper roots: this here blues pattern (and sometimes lyrical content) were already evident in Riot In Cell Block #9 (another Leiber & Stoller effort), Josh White's Evil-Hearted Man ('44), Big Bill Broonzy's Evil-Hearted Me ('37) (see there), Lightnin' Slim's I'm Evil, Johnny Guitar Watson's Gangster Of Love ('57), Muddy Waters' Hoochie Coochie Man, I Just Want To Make Love To You and Evil (B-side of I Live The Life I Love), even in Ray Charles' hit It Should've Been Me ('57) and Willie Mabon's Chess cuts I Don't Know and follow-up I'm Mad (both '53).
