Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“See See Rider”, also known as “C.C. Rider”, “See See Rider Blues” or “Easy Rider”, is a popular American 12-bar blues song, originally recorded by Gertrude “Ma” Rainey in 1924.

The song uses mostly traditional blues lyrics to tell the story of an unfaithful lover, commonly called an easy rider: “See see rider, see what you have done,” making a play on the word see and the sound of easy (Wikipedia).
