Guilty
The Blues Brothers Lyrics


Yeah baby, yeah I've been drinkin'
And I, I shouldn't come by, no
But I found myself in trouble
And I had nowhere else to go
Got some whiskey from the barman
I got some cocaine from my friends
I gotta keep on movin'
Til I'm back in your arms again
Guilty, yes I'm guilty
And I'll be guilty for the rest of my life
How come baby, how come I never do what I'm supposed to do
How come everything I try never turns out right?
You know how it is with me baby
You know I just can't stand myself
And it takes a whole lot of medicine darling
For me to pretend that I'm somebody else

Yeah baby,
yeah I've been drinkin'
And I, I shouldn't come by, no
But I found myself in trouble
And I had nowhere else to go
Got some whiskey from the barman
I got some c-c-n - from my friends
I gotta keep on movin'
Till I'm back in your arms again
Guilty,
yes I'm guilty
And I'll be guilty
for the rest of my life
How come baby,
how come I never do
what I'm supposed to do
How come everything I try
never turns out right?
You know how it is with me baby
You know I just can't stand myself
And it takes a whole lot of medicine darling
For me to pretend that I'm somebody else

Well, ...

Watched a documentary on John Belushi this morning. This song plays at the end of it. Such a brilliant actor. Gone too soon.

Ken Ricklin

Saw a Blues Brothers show in Columbia, MD in 1980. Belushi knocked this song out of the park. If we had any inkling as to how this described John's life, I think we would've been in tears.

Adam Randall Hall

did Belushi actually play the piano live for this? To my knowledge he could play but it's still a mystery because the live visual performance of this was either never recorded, or archived

@fozzaKalabbula John could sing and like you said was one hell of a frontman. He was a decent musician in regards to other instruments including the keyboards and the drums

Dude, this is Paul motherfucking Shaffer, I love my man Belushi, but this is absolutely top class musicianship, which he didn't have. Hell of a frontman, amazing actor, incredible human being, but let's be fucking real :D

From what i understand i feel like belushi may have committed suicide later had he not o.d.
His demeanor in real life portrayed a depression. The fact that he could sing such sadness and project it into you, had serious drug problems had to be underliners for something major.

Adam Randall Hall

Well i can certainly say in ways yes. His last 24 hours are the most important piece to answering that. Belushi hated heroin and was scared of needles. I'm sure when he arrived in L.A. it was everywhere. So for him to wind up doing enough of it to even kill a healthy man, that says something. I've tried putting myself in his shoes a little but prior to his death he was in LA to pitch a movie he was writing called ''Noble Rot'', a passion project of his that was shelved of course when he died. But if you read the script the character he's playing he's trying to identify with a kind of a post-party depression early 30's weed only kinda guy and was excited to do it. Instead they said no! We want you to be in this movie National Lampoon (Animal House) was making called the Joy of Sex where he would wear a diaper in a scene. That's a big fucking oof right there. Prior to that John was on and off cocaine. Got out of hand on the blues brothers, got clean and did a movie clean called continental divide (1981)then neightbors (1981) where again there's a cocaine budget AND he doesn't like the script because it sucks cocks. Even when he got clean it was inevitable for him to be put on a set where they feed him mountains of it literally. So when he tells a strange heroin dealer in LA, i'm afraid to do it myself can you inject speedballs into my arm for me? That was a cry for help like please fucking kill me. Mellow me out i don't wanna entertain these people anymore. And for good reason, he had so many good points the morning he never woke up.
