Ghetto Woman
B.B. King Lyrics


She`s a ghetto woman, waitin for her man to come home
Oh poor ghetto woman waitin for her man to come home
She`s just a ghetto woman waitin for her man to come home
To come home

A rat run cross the floor, a roach turn up the wall
Everything is noisy around her, that don`t seem to bother her at all
Cause she`s a ghetto woman, sittin there all alone
She`s just a ghetto woman waitin for her man to come home
To come home

Yes, the tv`s on, radio blastin` the news
Somebody down the hall, playin the low down dirty blues
My ghetto woman, she`s all alone
She`s just a ghetto woman, waitin for her man to come home
To come home

'Cause she`s a ghetto woman, said she`s a ghetto woman
Oh, ghetto woman, what`s on your mind
Sometimes I look in your face, can`t help but cry.

"Riley B. King"






He's a king without a castle or crown

And every night he lays his body down

In a different town

But one thing stays the same

Everybody knows his name



People may laugh or cry

As his stories are told

To tell the truth like this

A man must be bold

And the people are glad

For the things he shares

Everybody knows he cares



By the light of the moon

Over the ocean

Riley B. King

Is the king of the emotions

He's royal blue

Like the deep blue sea

Riley B. King



Out of the darkness

And into the light

To fight the peaceful

Warriors fight

Such a beautiful sight

And the way you feel

Watchin' him with Lucille



The heart of a man

Is open wide

And he closes his eyes

And he looks inside

To a love of the world

And a song he might sing

A little something from B.B. King



By the light of the moon

Over the ocean

Riley B. King

Is the king of emotions

He's royal blue

Just Like the deep blue sea

Riley B. King



The stars look down to guide him

Down the miles of road ahead



A silver form of memories

Of his life sincerely



He's a king without a castle or crown

And every night he lays his body down

In a different town

But one thing stays the same

Everybody knows his name

lyrics: Robben Ford

She's a ghetto woman, waitin for her man to come home
Oh poor ghetto woman waitin for her man to come home
She's just a ghetto woman waitin for her man to come home
To come home

A rat run cross the floor, a roach turn up the wall
Everything is noisy around her, that don't seem to bother her at all
Cause she's a ghetto woman, sittin there all alone
She's just a ghetto woman waitin for her man to come home
To come home

Yes, the tv's on, radio blastin' the news
Somebody down the hall, playin the low down dirty blues
My ghetto woman, she's all alone
She's just a ghetto woman, waitin for her man to come home
To come home

Cause she's a ghetto woman, said she's a ghetto woman
Oh, ghetto woman, what's on your mind
Sometimes i look in your face, can't help but cry.

One of the most underrated songs ever by BB King.

James Cross

This is a classic.I was fortunate to have met him. He was a true gentleman and a grate bluesman

PJ KICKS

OMG I remember being a little kid in my mom's Oldsmobile Cutlass Sierra, listening to this tape and I knew the words my sister and me thought old things were funny but now we appreciate it so much now that we go back and listen to things like this. RIP Mr. B.B. King.

@Charles Manley​ couldn't have said it better myself. It's kinda sad this emotion and kind of music wave is lost to this new generation. Certain songs will bring back strong memories for myself especially the blues

Charles Manley

Sometimes I here song that I haven't heard in awhile and be like damn I remember doing this or that. Music like this brings back the emotions and all when you reminisce over it. You can truly travel through time with good music.

His voice, no one can sing the blues like him. I grew up listening to him and my mom dancing in the floor!! Good and sad memories.
