Downhearted aka How Blue Can You Get
B.B. King Lyrics


I've been downhearted baby
Ever since the day we met
I said I've been downhearted baby
Ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues, woman
Baby, how blue can you get?

You're evil when I'm with you
And you are jealous when we're apart
Yes, I said you're evil
You're so evil when I'm with you, baby
And you are jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get, baby?
The answer's is right here in my heart

I gave you a brand-new Ford
You said I want a Cadillac
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
You said thanks for the snack
I let you live in my penthouse
You said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children
And now you want to give them back
Yes, I've been downhearted baby
Ever since the day we met
I said our love is nothing but the blues
Baby, how blue can you get?

I gave you a brand new Ford, you said I want a Cadillac.
I bought you a 10 dollar dinner, you said thanks for the snack.
I let you live in my penthouse, you said it was just a shack.
I gave you seven children, and now you wanna give 'em back!

Some of the greatest lyrics ever written in my opinion. Whether you've experienced it or not, you just feel something in your soul when he sings it.
