How Blue Can Tou Get
B.B. King Lyrics


I've been down hearted baby, ever since the day we met
I said I've been down hearted baby, ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues, baby, how blue can you get?

You're evil when I'm with you, baby, and you're jealous when we're apart
I said you're evil when I'm with you, baby, and you're jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get baby, the answer is right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford, but you said: "I want a Cadillac"
I bought you a ten dollar dinner, and you said: thanks for the snack
I let you live in my penthouse, you said it just a shack

I gave seven children, and now you wanna give them back
I said I've been down hearted baby, ever since the day we met
Our love is nothing but the blues, baby, how blue can you get?

I've been down hearted baby
Ever since the day we met
I said I've been down hearted 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, baby
And you're jealous when we're apart
I said You're evil when I'm with you, baby
And you're jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get baby
The answer is right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford
But you said: "I want a Cadillac"
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
And you said: "thanks for the snack"
I let you live in my pent house
You said it just a shack
I gave you seven children
And now you wanna give them back

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

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?

$10 in 1949 is is equivalent in purchasing power to about $108.8 in 2020

This is the simplest way to calculate it
FV = PV(1+ I)^ N

Present Value(PV)= $10
Average inflation rate (I)= %3.42
Number of years(N)= 71 years

FV= $10 × (1 + .0342)^71= $108.8

Morgan Freeman should need to do a movie as B.B. King for win an oscar for best actor in a lead role

Bill Atnip

@davidtheguitarman lol cant be serious suppose you have never heard of the. Beatles or Rolling Stones either

Divanshu Kumar Mahajan

Morgan Freeman is eighty-fucking-two. At that age, it's not impossible to put on and burn off a lot of fat, but it's super hard, too much of an inconvenience.
Then again, fat suits are always an option.

I cant help but to wonder what a 10 dollar diner would be like in the time in which he wrote this song.

The song was not originally written by B.B King, it was written in 1949 so if you account inflation 10 dollars back then would be about 100 dollars today.
