Never Make A Move Too Soon
B.B. King Lyrics


Three days of snow in Birmingham
Thought you would wonder where I am
Rang our number all night long
It's no comfort on the telephone
Ran out and caught a midnight flight
Thought a little love would make everything all right
The landlord said, "You moved away"
And left me all your bills to pay"
Look out baby, you might have made your move too soon
Left me with a Keno card
This life in Vegas sure ain't hard
I ran it up to about fifty grand
Cashed it in and held it in my hand
That kind of word can get around
And make a lost love come up found
I hear you knocking baby at my door
But you know you ain't living here no more
It's too bad
I think you made your move too soon

I've been from Spain to Tokyo
From Africa to Ohio
I never tried to make the news
I'm just a man who plays the blues
I take my lovin' everywhere
I came back, and they still care you know
One love ahead
One love behind
One in my arms and one on my mind
It's one thing baby
I never make my move too soon

I've been from Spain to Tokyo
From Africa to Ohio
I never tried to make the news
I'm just a man who plays the blues
I take my lovin' everywhere
I come back, you know they still all care
One love ahead and one behind
One in my arms you know, one on my mind
And it's one thing people
I never make my move too soon

If you don't pat you feet and rock you head back and forth on this jam, then you don't have any soul in you at all!

@Williestean Carr Not only driving to fast, with your feet on the gas,... trying going in your driveway, car with it's own will, continues through the gate, into the kitchen and the dining room. .. wiped out everything in it's path .. .door, stove fridge, oven, cabinets.... That's what I did!!!!
