David Bromberg is the master composer of pissed-off blues, and this is one I like, but cannot find. Anybody know it?

If it's the J Rogers song, here are the lyrics.

WHO'S LOVING YOU TONIGHT
Lyrics By: James A Lane (Jimmy Rogers)
Music By: James A Lane (Jimmy Rogers)

[Elvin Bishop]
You told me baby, once upon a time
If I'd be yours, you'd be mine
But that's all right
I know you lovin' another man, but that's all right
But now and then I wonder, who's loving you tonight?


[Pigpen]
You love another man, [but love her too]
I need you baby, I'm gonna get next to you
My, my, my, my, my, my love
I got to be next to you tonight
I want you now baby
Who's loving you tonight?


[Elvin Bishop]
You told me baby, that your love for me was strong
But I found out that you were doing me wrong
But that's all right
I know you love another man, but that's all right
But now and then I wonder, who's loving you tonight?


Played by Elvin Bishop with the Dead on 8 June 1969. He and Pigpen share vocals.

The song properly called "That's All Right." Jerry Garcia played it with Merl Saunders (a version is on the CD 'Keepers'). It is not the same song as "That's All Right (Mama)" by Arthur Crudup (even though 'Keepers' lists it as that). It's a Jimmy Rogers [real name James A Lane] song, covered by Junior Parker and many others. But to avoid confusion, I have left the title as "Who's Loving You Tonight" here

This is the version by Elvin Bishop and Pigpen."

Just for clarification, Jimmy Rogers was a Black bluesman who did his best work in the Chicago area in the 1950s.

Here's how Jimmy Rogers sang it. I pieced these lyrics together from several sound samples. It's probably incomplete.

Apparently Rogers recorded it several times, and didn't always use the same lyrics. That leads to some alternative phrasing, indicated by braces {--}.

THAT'S ALL RIGHT

You told me baby, once upon a time,
You said if I would be yours, you would sure be mine,
But that's all right.
{I know you don't love me no more, baby}
{I know you're loving some other man}, but that's all right.
Every now and then I wonder, who's loving you tonight?

...
Yes, baby, that's all right.
Every now and then I wonder, who's loving you tonight?

You told me, baby, your love for me was strong.
When I woke up, little girl, half of this big world was gone,
But that's all right.
{I know you don't love me no more}
{I guess I'll never be the same}, but that's all right.
Every now and then I wonder, who's loving you tonight?
