How Blue Can You Get?

November 4, 2010

I like blues music. No. That’s wrong. I love blues music. There is something about blues music that reaches the soul. I think it’s played from a different place. It comes out of the deep parts of the soul that people are no longer afraid to share with the world, and it comes out in amazing form. The thing is, sometimes a song like this is written, and you just have to laugh. This is B.B. King – How Blue Can You Get? Enjoy.

Been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
I’ve been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
Our love is nothin’ but the blues
Baby how blue can you get

My love is like a fire
Your love is like a cigaret
My love is like a fire
But baby yours is like a cigaret
I watch you step down on it baby and crush it
Tell me how, tell me how, how blue can you get

You’re evil when I’m with you
and you’re jealous when we’re apart
Yes you’re evil when I’m with you baby
Lord have mercy, you’re jealous when we’re apart
How blue can you get
Hey that’s a writing in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford
and you just said I want a Cadillac
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
You said Thanks for the snack
I let you live in my penthouse
You said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children
and now you wanna give ’em back

I’ve been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
Our love is nothin’ but the blues
Baby how blue can you get
