I Gave Up Everything For You 'Cept The Blues
Joe Bonamassa Lyrics


Put down that two pack habit yesterday
Threw that show glass just to watch it break
My whiskey bottle turned upside down in the drain
Those wild women that's a whole another thing

I gave up everything, baby
I gave up everything for you
I got nothing left to lose
I gave up everything for you, 'cept the blues
Went on a diet, yeah I'm eating good
Gave up the things you said I should
Fit as a fiddle girl I lost ten pounds
So why am I so damn down?

Gave up everything, now
I give up everything for you
I got nothing left to lose
I gave up everything for you, 'cept the blues

Put out the reefer, no more getting stoned
Trade in my fast car for a motor home
Took all my demons, put 'em in a sack
How come I still fell there's a monkey on my back

I gave up everything, baby
I gave up everything for you
I got nothing left to lose
I gave up everything for you, 'cept the blues

I had the good life in the days I was king
Ain't nothing left now but the same old blues I sing

Gave up everything, baby
I gave up everything for you
I got nothing left to lose
I gave up everything for you, 'cept the blues

This song has been played in my house over 5000 times. It never gets old. Joe, you are my favorite musician on the planet. Just amazing. PS..when you did this "LIVE" at the Chicago Theater on 4/16/2014, I had goose bumps. My wife and I were rockin the aisle. Old people love this stuff too. LOL

My ex-wife's last words as she left "And the neighbors hate you, too, because you play that F'in song so loud ALL THE TIME" :)

A true journeyman. I don't think there's a more rounded total guitarist/musician on Earth. Have you seen his acoustic guitar work? He's the whole package...journeyman!
