Blues standard since Willie Cobbs, who indeed worked it out consistently. Although the guitar part, title and Cobbs' vocal line are clearly there since Bo's original. Settled in court. (see also Hey Bo Diddley). On the sideline Little Walter's Up The Line made school with Bacon Fat, Robben Ford, John Hammond, Omar & The Howlers, Paul Orta, Rod Piazza and Roomful Of Blues. Willie Cobbs's is not to be confused with Bo Diddley's You Don't Love Me. Indeed, it's complicated.
