My singing comes from my experience. My own experience. My own thing. I got my feelin’s for everything. I never had no one teach me nothin’. I never went to school for music or nothin’. I taught myself to sing and to blow harmonica and even to play drums by watchin’ other people. I can’t read music but I know what I’m singing. I don’t sing like nobody but myself.

But I still can’t believe that you didn’t tell me.
