Here’s another classic blues tale involving triumph over adversity. Originally performed by Guitar Slim, this song has been covered by the likes of T-Bone Walker, Billy Boy Arnold, Ike Turner, Lazy Lester, and James Cotton (both on his Take Me Back album and with Muddy Waters and Johnny Winter on Breakin’ It Up, Breakin’ It Down).
“Now the day that I first met you,
You seemed such a sweet little thing.
But after a while you got so bad,
You know it was a cryin’ shame.
But I done got over it,
Lord I done got over it.
Well I done got over it,
I done got over it at last.”
– Well I Done Got Over It, Guitar Slim
