Six Silver Strings
B.B. King Lyrics


Six silver strings, baby
Are all tied to me
I'm not the man, darling
That I'm supposed to be

I can't see you when I want you, baby
I have to see you when I can

Six silver strings
That are holding me
Six silver strings
Just will not set me free

I still can't see you when I want you, baby
See you when I want you, darling
I have to see you when I can

I'm calling on you, baby
Have a little mercy on me
Baby, please have a little pity on me

Hold your string
And I'll do anything for you, baby
Six silver strings
Make me your perfect man

I still can't see you when I want you, baby
See you when I want you, darling
I have to see you when I can

Hold your string
And I'll do anything for you, baby
Six silver strings
Make me your perfect man

And I still can't see you when I want you, baby
See you when I want you, darling
I have to see you when I can

(Six silver strings)
Baby, that's all I have
(Six silver strings)
Baby, are holding me
(Six silver strings)

George Scombulis

Bullshit... She was named after the cook with "crazy legs" who was the object of affection -- and attraction -- of two gents who started a fight over her that started a fire in the barn in Twist, Arkansas. The dudes were fighting over a cook, Lucille Green, according to several biographical accounts including Charles Sawyer's work.
