This is a blues standard written and first recorded by Ma Rainey, whose version hit #12 in 1925 as "See See Rider Blues." The "C.C. Rider," also known as "See See Rider" or "Easy Rider," is a blues cliché for the sexual partner, although originally it referred to the guitar hung on the back of the traveling bluesman.
Ma Rainey was a vaudeville star in the early 1900s, singing in tents at travelling shows. In 1923, she started recording for Paramount Records, becoming, along with Bessie Smith, one of the first female blues artists to find a wide audience.
