Lyrics and Music: McKinley Morganfield (aka Muddy Waters), Mel London, & Ellas McDaniel (aka Bo Diddley)
Original artist: Muddy Waters
   
The Muddy Waters song “Mannish Boy” is almost identical to the Bo Diddley song “I’m A Man”. Bo Diddley had a chart success with this in 1955, and it seem the record company decided to cash in by releasing a similar record. At the time, Bo Diddley did not seem to object -- He was given a shared writing credit -- but Bo Diddley later claimed sole authorship.
