Happy Birthday

James Mathis "Jimmy" Reed
Born September 6, 1925 Dunleith, MS. Onetime Hoosier (lived in Gary and worked in the mills; I told ya, we claim everybody).

Died August 29, 1976 Oakland CA.

Dark sun glasses,
Sharkskin suit, standing in the
Broken glass of east Dubuque
On a Sunday morning.
A Sunday morning.
Jimmy Reed is the King of Rock and Roll.
