    General CommentHmm this song was originally done by John Coltrain I do believe. Van Morrison covered it, and so did Aerosmith, and probably a bunch more. Good song, I am yet to hear The Door's version of it.

    General CommentNope, not Van Morrison or Coltrane. It's hard to say who wrote it because it was plagiarized from other traditional blues songs (not uncommon at all). It was first performed by Big Joe Williams, then popularized by Muddy Waters. And yes, the Doors covered it. Actually, lots of bands covered it in the 60's and 70's, it was a good live tune. Off the top of my head, Ted Nugent, Them, Budgie, and AC/DC also covered it.

    My InterpretationI guess Jim had broken up with Pamela again and this reflects that.
