Right Next Door
Robert Cray Lyrics

I can hear the couple fighting right next door
Their angry words sound clear through these thin walls
Around midnight I heard ‘em shout "Unfaithful one"
And I knew right then the axe was gonna fall
It's because of me, It's because of me

I heard him shout "Who is he", she mumbled low
He said "Baby, don't you lie to me no more"
And I'm listening through these thin walls silent o' shame
As she called out my name I was right next door

It's because of me, It's because of me
Because of me, It's because of me

Oh, she was right next door and I'm such a strong persuader
She was just another note on my guitar
She's gonna lose the man that really loves her
In the silence I can hear their breaking hearts
At daybreak I can hear him pack, say goodbye
I can hear him slam the door and walk away
Right next door I can hear that woman start to cry
I should go to her, but what would I say

It's because of me, It's because of me
Because of me, Young heart

CHORUS (twice)

If Robert Cray isn't on your list of Great Blues Players, then your list needs work as it's incomplete, enough said.


@Maxine Huirama - That blues lick that goes with "say goodbye" is so perfect. That's song-writing, as well, I guess. 2:18
