Additional comments and sources

Lyrics mostly coincide with Joe Jackson's original; some lyrics from Lonnie Johnson's cover are added, and possibly original lyrics.


The 1961 release is a live album recorded in 1957. The song was likely released as a single earlier, but it is difficult to find any documentation.
