On his originals he did. A lot of his songs are covers, though.

Yes he did.

But like all blues artists, he covered many, many of his songs.

Well a lot of his songs were covers. Like "Texas Flood," one of his biggest songs. Its just the way of the blues, to take another musicians song, and just make it completely your own.

Did he write Dirty Pool and Tin Pan Alley? I think those are my two favorite songs of his lyrics wise.

Tin Pan Alley was written by Robert Geddins. I remember reading in his biography that he heard the song on a jukebox in a bar and asked the guy if he could use his tape recorder to record it or something like that.
