"I'm Walkin'" is a 1957 song by Fats Domino, written together with Dave Bartholomew.

The single was Fats Domino's third release in a row to reach number one on the R&B Best Sellers chart, where it stayed for six weeks. The single also continued Fats Domino's crossover appeal when "I'm Walkin'" peaked at number four on the pop singles chart.[1] The song was featured in The Blues Brothers movie, during the scene in which the orphanage kids help spread the word of the band's revival concert.
