I Don't Know (Willie Mabon song)
"I Don't Know" is a 1952 recording by Willie Mabon and His Combo on Parrot Records (blues label) and Chess Records. The single was considered by many to be extremely influential on the development of U.S. R&B throughout and beyond the 1950s. Mabon's first and only chart hit, it reached number one on the U.S. R&B chart in December 1952.. The lyrics were derived from a Cripple Clarence Lofton tune.
Freddie King covered the song on his 1969 album "My Feeling for the Blues".
