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.

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.
