Fenton Robinson (23 September 1935, Greenwood, Mississippi — 25 November 1997, Rockford, Illinois) was a blues singer and exponent of the Chicago Blues guitar.

His signature song, “Somebody Loan Me a Dime” was covered by Boz Scaggs, but attributed to Scaggs himself, resulting in legal battles. The nationwide distribution of Robinson’s own version of the song was aborted by a freak snow storm hitting Chicago. In the 1970s he was arrested and imprisoned for vehicular manslaughter. Paroled after nine months, he continued playing in Chicago clubs, and later taught guitar.
He died of complications from brain cancer.
