“Don’t You Lie to Me” (sometimes called “I Get Evil”) is a blues song recorded by Tampa Red in 1940. It became a standard of the blues, with recordings by various artists. The song was also interpreted by rock and roll pioneers Fats Domino and Chuck Berry.

Original song
“Don’t You Lie to Me” was recorded by Tampa Red approximately mid-point in his prolific recording career, representing the transition from his earlier hokum recordings to his later early Chicago-blues combo style. This was the same period when he began playing the electric guitar and recorded his best known blues classics, including “It Hurts Me Too”, “Love with a Feeling”, and “Anna Lou Blues”, the B-side of “Don’t You Lie to Me”

Albert king’s versions
In 1962, Albert King recorded “Don’t You Lie to Me” as “I Get Evil” (Bobbin 135), which was included on his first album The Big Blues. King’s version uses an Afro-Cuban style rhythm, which he would later use for his 1967 hit “Crosscut Saw”. Later, King with Stevie Ray Vaughan recorded it live for television in 1983, which is included on Albert King with Stevie Ray Vaughan in Session. In 1977, B.B. King recorded the song for his King Size album. Gary Moore recorded it using both titles “Don’t You Lie to Me (I Get Evil)”, which follows Albert King’s version, for his 1992 After Hours album.
