Epic Songs for Monday

Muddy Waters, "My Life Is Ruined".

This is history, it's a song that influenced so many artists, including Eric Clapton who chose it for the soundtrack of hi recent documentary, "Life in 12 Bars".

"All last night, man I laid in my bed all alone
Rollin' and' tumblin', just me and myself alone
The landlady tried to call, I was too evil to answer the phone

Since you been gone, oh man how my poor heart burns
Since you went away baby, oh how my poor heart burns
You don't come back to me, I believe my body will rot

Please, please come and go with me
Down on my knees begging, Please come and go with me
I wanna take you to a place, honey where we're all good"
