I've Got A Mind To Give Up Living
B.B. King Lyrics


I've got a good mind to give up living, and go shopping
Instead
I say, I've got a good mind to give up living, and go
Shopping instead
To pick up me a tombstone, and be pronounced dead

When I read your letter this morning, that was in your
Place in bed
I read your letter this morning, that was in your place
In bed
And that's when I decided, that I would be better off
Dead

It read, there is no use you looking, or ever hoping to
Get me back
Oh, there's no use you looking, or ever hoping to get me
Back
Yes, because it's all over now, and baby you can bet on
That

All three versions are fabulous: BB's original, FM/Peter Green's tour d' force, and Bloomfield's/Butterfield's masterpiece.

Like the great Sonny Boy Williamson aka Rice Miller once said "The British boys want to play the blues so bad, and oh do they play it so bad". Peter Green , BB King, surely you jest.

And Butterfield's vocal is mesmerizing. Amist the good hearted bickering whether Green or King is better ( and I truly love them both) , I prefer the Butterfield Blues' version...

I still love Mike Bloomfield's guitar on the version he does with Butterfield Blues Band. Pretty amazing. Green's version is intense, though.

lalita vajra

pretty damn good, his 'prince' Peter Green, does a very soulful version. PG, reckon he soaked in B B Kingness...
