WHO DO YOU LOVE

Latest update on 26/02/2013

Artist: Bo Diddley
Author: Ellas McDaniel
Label: Checker
Year: 1956

Lyrics partly indebted to Muddy Waters ("I have a tombstone hat and a ball and chain"). Rhythm & melody come from a ring game tune (never underestimate children's abilities to carry on traditions), while Bo's beat is pure fife & drum shave and a harcut.
