Riley B. King
Robben Ford Lyrics


He's a king without a castle or crown
And every night he lays his body down
In a different town
But one thing stays the same
Everybody knows his name

People may laugh or cry
As his stories are told
To tell the truth like this
A man must be bold
And the people are glad
For the things he shares
Everybody knows he cares

By the light of the moon
Over the ocean
Riley B. King
Is the king of the emotions
He's royal blue
Like the deep blue sea
Riley B. King

Out of the darkness
And into the light
To fight the peaceful
Warriors fight
Such a beautiful sight
And the way you feel
Watchin' him with Lucille

The heart of a man
Is open wide
And he closes his eyes
And he looks inside
To a love of the world
And a song he might sing
A little something from B.B. King

By the light of the moon
Over the ocean
Riley B. King
Is the king of emotions
He's royal blue
Just Like the deep blue sea
Riley B. King

The stars look down to guide him
Down the miles of road ahead

A silver form of memories
Of his life sincerly

He's a king without a castle or crown
And every night he lays his body down
In a different town
But one thing stays the same
Everybody knows his name

By the light of the moon
Over the ocean
Riley B. King
Is the king of emotions
He's royal blue
Like the deep blue sea
Riley B. King
Riley B. King
Riley B. King
Riley B. King
