"Tribute to a Friend" as written by and Jimmy Reed....
All lyrics spoken:
Now listen, I want to tell ya sump'em.
I'm gonna play this one for a old friend of mine.
A old friend called, Sonny Boy William.
He's done passed on the other side, now, but
Wherever he's at, I know he is swingin'.
And I know he enjoyin' hisself,
And Sonny Boy, this is for you from, Jimmy Reed!

I know that they been scratchin' their back an'
Clippin' their toenails an' gettin' buck bare-feeted
And all that ole kinda jive. But ladies and gentleman,
I wouldn't have you to do none of that for me.
I just want you to sit back and relax and cool it an'
Take it easy, an'listen at me play these blues.

Well now, I guess I'll play this for a old friend a mine,
Oh man, Sonny Boy William. He is passed on now,
But wherever he at, I know he enjoyin' hisself, an'this,
I'm playin' for, my friend which for have passed on,
Mr. Sonny Boy William. And Mr. Sonny Boy, this is for YOU
