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'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?

B.B. KING
DESCANSE EN PAZ, MAESTRO, HOY EN EL DÍA DEL MAESTRO, DESCANSE EN PAZ, VERDADERO MAESTRO Y VIRTUOSÍSIMO DE LA GUITARRA. YA ESTÁS CON JIMI HENDRIX Y PACO DE LUCÍA IMPROVISANDO... LLORO. SE VAN LOS MUY GRANDES. VERDADERA PÉRDIDA. VERDADERA. 

GRACIAS POR TOOODO TU TALENTO Y TU ALMA VOLCADA EN TODA TU MÚSICA, GRAN REY B.B. KING.

Y así es, era un espectáculo verlo tocar, no sóló por su música, sino por su expresión gestual y corporal. Vaya con Dios.

“B.B. King no toca con los dedos sino con los surcos de su cara. Marcado por el tiempo, cada vez que estira una cuerda o rasguea los melancólicos acordes menores del blues, su rostro se estremece, se deforma, se amplía, se despliega. Cierra los ojos, ensancha la boca, arquea las cejas con los síntomas patológicos del blues: la música más auténtica y con más verdad del mundo, junto al flamenco.”
Lino Portela. El País.

my music teacher made us listen through 30 mins of his songs.
he died 4 days ago (last thursday) and his songs are great
i feel guilty for not knowing him sooner.
this world needs people like him, and its getting impossible every year.
i feel so guilty.

yes i copied and pasted this. but it needs to be shown

i would pay alot for google to change its logo for this.

Nobody plays this song better than BB King; even more so at the Cook County jail. You can hear the inmates yell "yeah" in the background when a lyric talks to them. Great stuff.

you gotta check the Sing Sing Prison performance as well

NANCY VETTER amen🙏BB King🎩 live💚

He's all about the setup.  He builds his solos like a good suspense novel or a good prizefighter in a title bout.  He takes you up, but not too quick, then sets you up and in one note kills it.  He would do his vocals the same way.
