Lyric for the day
C C Rider, see what you done done
C C Rider, you see what you done done
You C C Rider, you see what you done done
You done made me love you and now your man done come
Big Bill Broonzy - CC Rider
The song is likely to be traditional in origin. Ma Rainey's version became popular during 1925, as "See See Rider Blues." It became one of the most famous of all blues songs, with well over 100 versions. I like Mitch Ryder's version nearly as much as Big Bill's. An 'easy rider' in the Blues world was an unfaithful lover, so CC originated from 'see, see rider, see what you have done'
