Default Gave you all my money...go get some more

Hi. About 2 months ago I was listening to a KBOO [Portland Oregon] show called Blue Monday and heard part of a song--the male singer sang something like "I gave you all my money. What more you want me do?" and then a female chorus (2 or 3 voices) chimed in "Go get some mo', go get some mo', go get some mo'."
That is how I remember it at least.
I had to pull over I was laughing so hard. Not that often a blues song makes me bust out laughing like that.
Since then I've tried and tried to find the song/artist/record--any info--but keep coming up blank.
If anyone recognizes this, please PLEASE email me any info you can--feel free to email me directly at jozierabyor@comcast.net .
You will make me so happy!
Thank you so much.

Hi Jozie,

Could it be a cover version of 'Driftin' Blues' by Sam Cooke?
Maybe the arranger added the responses ("Go get some mo')
for humor sake! Write to the radio station that played. They should know!
Then let us know too... My best to you, Helen

Anyway, here are the lyrics to Driftin Blues...

I'm driftin'
I'm driftin'
Like a ship out on the sea
I'm driftin'
I'm driftin'
I'm driftin'
Like a ship out on the sea
No, I ain't got nobody
In the world to care for me

If my baby would only take me back again, back again
If my baby would only take me back again, back again

I know I'm a good for nothing
And I haven't got no friends
Listen to me, honey
I gave you all my money
Tell me tell me tell me tell me
What more can I do
Didn't I give to u all my money?
Now tell me what more can I do!

I'll realize you're a good little girl
But it seems that you won't be true

Seems like I got to tell you
Baby, bye bye
Bye bye, baby
Listen to me
I know you gonna miss me
This time you gonna be
The one to cry

The question was posted nine years ago, I'm pretty sure the person who posted it is long gone.

Thank you, Helen. I did try at the time contacting the radio station. It's a relatively small community station that no longer has a blues show. In any case, show hosts provide most (or all?) of their own selections.

But I'll bet you are right about Driftin' Blues. Now to try to track down the specific arrangement!

And to Janszoon--hi there! The rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Thanks to everyone--
Jozie

Wow! I think this is the only time I've ever seen that happen! Welcome back!
