So Glad I’m Living

It seems pretty obvious that this song is about a guy who loves being with his woman.  He reflects on the time that he spent with her and that makes him cry hmmm.  Muddy Waters was born McKinley Morganfield on April 4, 1915, in Issaquena County, Mississippi.  Waters grew up immersed in the Delta blues, and was first recorded by archivist Alan Lomax.  In 1943, he moved to Chicago and began playing in clubs.  A record deal followed, and hits like “I’m Your Hoochie Coochie Man” and “Rollin’ Stone” which made him an iconic Chicago blues man.  He was a major inspiration for the British blues explosion in the 1960s, and was also ranked number 17 in Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

My baby’s long and tall,
Shaped like a cannon ball
And every time she loves me,
Oh, you can hear me squall
I cried hmmm, hmmm,
I believe I change my mind
Ah, she said, ‘I’m so glad I’m livin’”,
I said, “Hmm baby, I’m so glad you’re mine”
My baby loves me,
I know she loves me right
She lets me lay down,
And I love her all night
I cried hmmm, hmmm,
I believe I change my mind
Ah, she said, “I’m so glad I’m livin’”,
I said, “Hmmm baby, I’m so glad you’re mine”
My baby…
My baby love me,
She love me with a thrill
I don’t believe,
She tryin’ to get nobody killed
I cried hmmm, hmmm,
I believe I change my mind
Ah, she said, “I’m so glad I’m livin’”,
I said, “Hmmm baby, I’m so glad you’re mine”
