I Shiver
Robert Cray Lyrics


I get the blues in the mornin'
So bad, I scare myself
My hair is turnin' gray so fast
I'm worried about my health

And I shiver all over, I shiver all over
I shiver all over, 'cause I ain't got you, hmm

I'm burnin' with a fever
My stomach's twisted up in knots
My blood's pressure's runnin' up so high
I know it's gonna stop my heart

And I shiver all over, I shiver all over
I shiver all over, 'cause I ain't got you, hmm

I've got spots all over my body
I wear shades 'cause my eyes are red
I got a headache that just won't go away
It's a wonder that I'm not dead

I got spots all over my body
I wear shades 'cause my eyes are red
I got a headache that just won't go away
It's a wonder that I'm not dead

My doctor looked at my condition
He said, "Oh, Bob, you look all a mess
There ain't a thing that I can do about you
But you can sure use a whole lot of rest"

And I shiver all over, I shiver all over
I can't even sleep at night, 'cause I ain't got you, hmm
I ain't got you

No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no

"I Shiver"

I get the blues in the morning.
So bad, I scare myself
My hair is turning gray so fast,
I'm worried about my health,

And I shiver all over,
I shiver all over,
I shiver all over,
'Cause I ain't got you!
Mmmmm...

I'm burning with a fever.
My stomach's twisted up in knots.
My blood's pressure is up so high
I know it's gonna stop my heart.

And I shiver all over,
I shiver all over,
I shiver all over,
'Cause I ain't got you!
Mmmmm...

I've got spots all over my body,
I wear shades 'cause my eyes are red
I've got a headache that just won't go away.
It's a wonder that I'm not dead.

I've got spots all over my body,
I wear shades 'cause my eyes are red
I've got a headache that just won't go away.
It's a wonder that I'm not dead.

My doctor looked at my condition,
He said oh, Bob you look a mess
There ain't a thing I can do about you
But, you sure can use a lot of rest.

And I shiver all over,
I shiver all over,
I can't even sleep at night,
'Cause I ain't got you!
Mmmmm...

I ain't got you!
No!
No, no no no
No, no no no
No, no no no,
I shiver all over,

I wanted to share what Robert once told me about his music style and when he did I felt so silly for not seeing it before. It was in the mid 80s also and he was hot and touring on a regular basis. I would talk to artists at a concert pavilion in columbia md because I was assigned to the area where they would unload from the bus and hit the stage. Robert replied when I asked why I thought he was so different and had such an unusual style. He said it was due to the music he grew up listening too. Sure the blues greats were present but his parents had a taste for Soul Music and when he named the various artists he was influenced by I got it. He learned most of his stuff using Mel Bay Books just as I did back then but figured out how to be as melodic as the Soul music he had heard. At 23 I was shocked and just as he said that he took the stage.....Had I been a reporter he may not have been so candid but I cherish that moment.

He deserves millions of dollars for playing like that.

I saw him in San Diego Street Scene. When he played this song, we all lost it. It was so hot, and everyone was feeling frisky, they needed to hose us down. Good memory with my Boo!

Carl Kandutsch

His guitar is extremely disciplined. He never wastes.a.single note and every note.expresses tje.mood.of tje.song. RC never shows off.

Antonio Avanzato

I saw him tonight in Tucson and had the good fortune to meet him for the second time and not only is he one of the best guitarist, but his voice range is incredible. He’s also a down to earth gentleman.
