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?

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.

I live in MS. He used to come to town and play the casinos. My guitar teacher actually had pictures with him, and a guitar signed by him.

This opening guitar solo has to be up there with the greatest live Blues guitar solos ever recorded. May He Rest In Peace.

It is the reason I took up guitar. This very intro just blew me away at age 15. Still blows me away at 49.
