MandolinPaul Sail On (8) Sail On, by Sonny Boy Williamson? 11 Jun 20


I regularly perform this song that I learned from a Muddy Waters recording, called Honey Bee. The first verse goes:


Sail on. Sail on my little honey bee. Sail on.
Sail on. Sail on my little honey bee. Sail on.
I don't mind you sailing but please don't sail so long.


I'm sure I've seen it done by Sonny Boy Williamson and called Sail On, but can't find it anywhere. Frankly, I'm looking for it because I already do a bunch of Muddy songs, and would like to attribute someone else.

Has anyone seen this anywhere, or am I imagining things?
