Help me find who did this song first (50's blues)

Hi,

As far as I can recall, this is how the song went. Read on.

I have been confronted with this musical mystery for more than fifteen years. Basically I last heard it maybe twleve years ago, and since lost the tape, which was originally recorded from an old open reel I got at a flea market near Montreal. I only remeber the words that I sing there: "My baby said she loved me, never told me the reason why". The song was a late fifties blues, with a horn section doing the main melody(which I play on guitar). The singer had a voice a bit like B B kind would have had, I think, fifty years ago.

Can somebody please, please help me find who did the original song?

Thank you. This would definitely make my Christmas merry.

No one? Not even a little clue? Come on all you blues fans tell me you haven't heard something similar (I'm not talking about the chord structure, it's a blues, I mean the main riff).
I'll check youtube for B B King's early stuff.

Played a lot of Blues myself, never with a sloppy drummer, but I cant help with this lyrics... hard to say.

But anyway nice lyrics play the song!!

As well, the tape itself can change from batch to batch. Ah the charm of analog... how quaint Do I miss it? Like a fish misses a hemorrhoid.

For a moment I had hope there, however I can assure you that the voice I heard was most definitely NOT Louis Armstrong's. But thank you anyway!
I will give the song a listen though...
went on grooveshark.
Nope. Not that.

I love sloppy blues! I love it! Keep drumming man - don't let those tight drumming friends put you down . I can't play either but I still play and record my own badly played music.

I've did some more researching lately and found that Wilbert Harrison has a similar voice to what I remember. I don't know his songs, but by listening to "Let's work together" I could really hear him singing the original song.
