Hi all,

I'm sorry if I chose the wrong category for this...

Can anybody tell me who is this? Sounds to me like Blind Willie Johnson, but it sounds too "good" to be him.
It's recorded on a phone. I can't find anything from what I understand the lyrics say.

Thank you very very much in advance.

C'mon be my baby,
C'mon be my baby,
I'll buy you diamonds,
I'll buy you diamond rings,

...and then I can't make it out


Try this: Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl

There are lots of recordings of Good Morning, School Girl. Wikipedia says the song was first recorded by pre-war Chicago blues vocalist and harmonica pioneer John Lee "Sonny Boy" Williamson in 1937. A variety of artists have recorded versions of the song, usually calling it "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl".

After many hours of searching, I found it! It's Mississippi Fred McDowell...and it's Good Morning, Little Schoolgirl!

Things is, I knew that song by Muddy Waters, but I never searched for it now. I was just browsing McDowell (from the beginning I suspected it was him or Blind Willie Johnson), was listening to one of his records and it suddenly came up.

Much thanks to everyone for this one. I love this song.
