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

Reading all of these great comments about this classic from the great man makes me almost as happy as the song, itself. Good for each and every one of you!

Riding in the car with my 84 yr old grandma and she is singing every word to this song right now. Lol it makes me happy to know his music touches her this way. R.I.P KING OF BLUES”

@Barbara Richmond I will and I do. She's currently in the ICU on a ventilator from a heart attack and pneumonia. Only my mom can be back there with her at the time. I asked her to please play some of his music to her and sometimes, its the only thing she responds to lol... I can't stop crying and it devastates me sometimes knowing I may not get to see her jamming to her favorite blues artist again.

Barbara Richmond

Sean, Cherish your. Grandma every day and let her know that you love her in words and deeds.
Say the words 💕

Just like I’ve always heard.” If you don’t like the BLUES, 4 real you got a hole in your SOUL!” The groove is smooth! Go BB!

Barbara Richmond

Joe Ann, Doesn't hurt to have those Houston Texas Boys called The Crusaders backing you up!
