  • Grayson Capps - Ike

    5:33

    Grayson Capps & The Stumpknockers - Rott 'N' Roll,
    Buy: Lyrics:
    Ike is a man
    He stays mostly at home
    He's got three dogs
    And a bucket full of bones

    He lends his place out
    To five-dollar whores
    And spends sunshiny days
    Upon his front porch

    Now he reads his paper
    He lays on his coach
    He drink that corn liquor whiskey
    Till the bottle runs out

    He puts his cane to the tracks
    He walks into the wind
    Ike tend to stay out
    While his women're in

    “Here we are
    Dirt from the river” he said
    “And we're rollin'
    On the flood
    We drink whiskey
    For our liver
    And stay stuck here
    Stuck in the mud”

    Now one of Ike's women
    Сame knockin' on my door
    The other night
    She said “I stay by Ike's house
    Do you have a light?”
    I gave her some matches
    I tried to shut the door. She said
    “No, baby, I need a candle
    So I can see the floor”

    She goes “A candle
    To light the way
    To light the way
    To something good”

    Now I told her I had a candle
    Somewhere's in my home
    She followed me in
    Asked me did I live alone
    “Yes, ma'am, I do” I says
    “I live here all by myself”
    And I pulled a little red candle
    Down off of the shelf

    “I appreciate that” she says
    In a snaggle-tooth grin
    “I bet you got yourself one pretty girlfriend”
    “Oh no, ma'am, I don't” I says
    As I look down at the floor
    It's strange how the Devil keeps pushing
    More and more

    “God damn!” she says
    “Do you like women?”
    “Yes, ma'am, I do.” I says “I like women”.
    She stroke a pose
    And looked at me sideways-like
    And she says
    “Well, do you want one
    Five-dollar woman
    Tonight?”

    Well here we are
    Dirt from the river
    And we're rolling
    On the flood
    We drink whiskey
    For our liver
    And stay stuck here
    Stuck in the mud

    I watched her as she walked home
    Down the street
    Flower-print polyester dress
    And no shoes on her feet

    Now Ike was on the railroad tracks
    He's looking up at the stars
    And she disappears in his house
    As the dogs begin to bark
    As the dogs
    Begin to bark

    “This fourth album by the Nashville-based native Alabaman and former New Orleanian plays out in the raw Southern milieu of his earlier work, and he again brings that world to vivid life. Supported by his band, the Stumpknockers, and singing in a gruff baritone, Capps spins out simmering backwoods story songs like “Arrowhead” and “Ike” that sound like a cross between Tony Joe White and Tom Waits. That’s when he’s not letting loose with the roadhouse-rocking fury of “Big Ole Woman” or “Big Black Buzzard.”

  • Axelle Red - No Right To Love

    2:45

    Lyrics:
    Standing here in front of you
    All tangled up in white and blue
    Your perfume burning in the air
    The kind of moment you would always swear
    It's close to perfect down the line
    I know you gonna be mine.
    Memories of a long dark night
    As I'm about to hold you tight
    You hear me sweet as a dove
    But I have no right to love
    My swinging sweet as a dove
    I have no right to love
    Cold steel rust 'n dusty floors
    Girls beging us to stop...
    Get much more
    A little boy an uncrowned king
    Today you want to teach love, everything
    I'd sign for this in a different world
    But I owe beauty, all these girls
    You hear me sweet as a dove
    But I have no right to love
    My swinging sweet as a dove
    I have no right to love
    ... I'll be forever passing through
    Without having known you

  • James Armstrong - Change In The Weather

    4:52

    Album: Blues Been Good To Me, ,
    Lyrics:
    There's a change in the weather
    There's a change in my heart
    There's a change in the weather, baby
    Because you broke my heart
    I won't see the sunshine again
    I'm living in the dark
    You took all the trust I had
    And gave it to someone new
    You took all the trust I had
    And gave it to someone new
    Now I'm standing alone in the rain
    Wondering what happened to me and you?

    Thanks to AmyLnnLee

    Born into a musical family in 1957 in Los Angeles, James Armstrong had blues music in his blood from the very start. His Mom was a blues singer, his Dad played jazz guitar. Armstrong formed his first band in the 7th grade, and by age 17 he was touring the country.

    James would start making waves on the local California blues circuit by his 20s, becoming the youngest member of Smokey Wilson’s band. In the 1980s, James was a founding member of the band Mama Roo and received his first recording contract for Crescendo Records.

    In the early 90s, James got plenty of exposure from his musical influences, including Albert Collins, and Sam Taylor. Shortly after that, he was discovered and signed by HighTone Records owner Bruce Bromberg, who had discovered and signed Robert Cray and Joe Louis Walker.

    Armstrong continues to tour extensively. He pays tribute to the past with the traditional blues, and his unique songwriting skills. Using both slide and pick, James’ guitar playing is some of the smoothest in the business. James regularly brings his vibrant and welcoming live shows to people around the globe.

    Album: Blues Ignited, Buy: Lyrics:
    Lonely nights and empty eyes
    Bleedin' heart wanderin' a starlet sky
    All alone, all alone by myself
    You know the woman I was lovin?
    yes the woman I was lovin,
    is lovin' someone else

    I pass my time down on the streets
    from place to place
    no one to meet
    All alone all alone by myself
    You know the woman i was lovin?
    yes the woman I was lovin
    is lovin someone else

    Midnight a walks down thru the night
    by myself I talk
    I don't know wrong from right
    All alone by myself
    You know the woman i was lovin?
    is lovin' someone else

    (piano solo 3:35 - 4:28)

    (guitar solo 4:29 - 5:22)

    That's my story
    I know it's been told and heard
    over and over
    I still don't believe a word
    All alone
    All alone by myself
    You know the woman I was lovin?
    yes the woman I was lovin
    You know the woman i was lovin???
    is lovin' someone else........

    Toronto blues harpist David Rotundo heard James Cotton perform at the El Mocambo in 1991. “He blew one note on the harmonica that hypnotized me...” The next day, Rotundo went out and bought a harmonica. “…and I’ve been playing the blues ever since.” Obsession with the blues led Rotundo on a diesel-fuelled roots tour of blues epicentres of the United States including - New Orleans, Clarksdale, Austin, Memphis and Chicago with little more than his wits and a bag full of harmonicas. I wanted to hear and experience the real thing.” He returned to Canada with a visceral perception of the blues and a deep knowledge of blues history. After making the stories his own, he earned the right to tell them. Rotundo has developed his own language of the blues, honing the technique that gives the voice power and authenticity.

    Lyrics:
    If I ever leave you baby... you can say I told you so
    And if I ever hurt you... you know I hurt myself as well

    Is that anyway for a man to carry on
    Do you think I want my loved one gone
    Said I love you
    More than you'll ever know
    More than you'll ever know

    When I wasn't making much money
    You know where my paycheck went
    You know I brought it home to ya baby
    And I never spent a red cent yeahhhh

    Is that any way for a man to carry on
    Do you think I want my loved one gone

    I know I know I know that I can be
    A part of you that no one else could see... yeah

    But I got to hear you say,
    I got hear ya say
    its alright

    I'm only flesh and blood
    But I could be anything that you demand
    I can be king of everything or just a tiny grain of sand

    Now tell me
    Is that anyway for a man to carry on
    Do you think that I want my loved one gone
    I love you... more than you'll ever know
    I said I love you I love ya I love you
    Heyyah don't want nobody else I don't need nobody else

    Lyrics:
    What can a poor man do, you know when the blues keep bothering him around
    What can a poor man do, you know when the blues keep bothering him around
    Give him a half pint of good liquor, and sit down and drink it all down
    You know, sometimes I feel, I feel like drinkin' me some gasoline
    You know, sometimes I feel, I feel like drinkin' me some gasoline
    Strikin' me a match and blow myself up in steam
    I feel I'm gonna move on back down south,
    you know where the water tastes like cherry wine
    I feel I'm gonna move on back down south,
    you know where the water tastes like cherry wine
    Because this crap of whiskey and water tastes to me like turpentine


    'A forefather of the Blues, Buddy Guy is a seven-time Grammy Award winner, holding five No. 1 albums under his hat, who helped bridge the gap between the Blues and Rock -n-Roll. A master Bluesman, Buddy Guy is still heavily active writing, recording, and touring at 81 years young. Never slowing down, Buddy Guy returns on June 15, 2018, with his new album'

    Lyrics:
    Do I move you, are you willin'
    Do I groove you, is it thrillin'
    Do I soothe you, tell the truth now
    Do I move you, are you loose now
    The answer better be (Yes, yes)
    That pleases me
    Are you ready for this action
    Does it give you satisfaction
    Are you hip to what I'm sayin'
    If you are then let's start swayin'
    The answer better be (Yes, yes)
    That pleases me
    When I touch you do you quiver
    Form your head down to your liver
    If you like it let me know it
    Don't be psychic or you'll blow it
    The answer better be (Yes, yes)

    Your love is king, crown you in my heart
    Your love is king, never need to part
    Your kisses ring, round and round and round my head
    Touching the very part of me, it's making my soul sing
    Tearing the very heart of me, I'm crying out for more

    Your love is king, crown you in my heart
    Your love is king, you're the ruler of my heart
    Your kisses ring, round and round and round my head
    Touching the very part of me, it's making my soul sing

    I'm coming on, I'm coming
    You're making me dance, inside

    Your love is king, never need to part
    Your kisses ring, round and round and round my head
    Touching the very part of me, it's making my soul sing
    Tearing the very heart of me, I'm crying out for more

    Touching the very part of me, it's making my soul sing
    I'm crying out for more, your love is king
    This is no blind faith, this is no sad and sorry dream
    This is no blind faith, your love, your love is real

    Gotta crown me with your heart

    Album: Sweet Little Angel, B.B. King Cover Buy: Model: Paula Almeida Lyrics: I've got a sweet little angel
    I love the way she spreads her wings
    Yes, got a sweet little angel
    I love the way she spread her wings
    Yes, when she spreads her wings around me
    I get so hot and everything
    You know, I ask my baby for a nickel
    And she gave me a twenty-dollar bill
    Oh yes, I asked my baby for a nickel
    And she gave me a twenty-dollar bill
    Well, you know I ask her for a little drink of liquer
    And she gave me a whiskey still
    Oh yeah, if my baby quit me
    Lord, I do believe I would die
    Oh yeah, if my baby should quit me
    Lord, I do believe I would die
    Lord, if you don't love me, little angel
    Please tell me the reason why
    (This version's lyrics are a bit different - If you hear the correct lines please write in the comments)

    John Littlejohn's stunning mastery of the slide guitar somehow never launched him into the major leagues of bluesdom. Only on a handful of occasions was the Chicago veteran's vicious bottleneck attack captured effectively on wax, but anyone who experienced one of his late-night sessions as a special musical guest on the Windy City circuit will never forget the crashing passion in his delivery.

    In 1956, B.B. King recorded Sweet Little Angel (RPM Records 468). According to King, I got the idea for 'Sweet Little Angel' from Robert Nighthawk's 'Sweet Black Angel', though I later discovered that the song had been recorded by someone before Nighthawk. At the time 'black' was not a popular word, as it is now. Instead of using the old title, I changed it to 'Sweet Little Angel'—and that was a pretty big record for me.[6] King's version, which included a horn section, was a stylistic shift for the song and it became a hit, reaching number eight on the Billboard R&B chart.[7] In 1957, he re-recorded Sweet Little Angel for his first album Singin' the Blues. Both versions prominently feature B.B. King's guitar work, with his note-bends sounding almost like a lap steel in places.[8]

  • Blue Stew - Bringing Home The Blues

    6:08

    Album: Stumbling Blocks and Stepping Stones - Scenes from AMC's Mad Men, Buy the complete series:
    For lyrics turn on captions.
    California-based Blue Stew serves up 12 tasty tracks on Destination: The #Blues (Main St. Records). The band has been playing a mix of blues styles since 1994. The material ranges from the Elmore James-inspired Chicago blues of Don't You Want a Man Like Me to the jazzy Keep Moving Along, with great Hammond B-3 organ from Jim Calire and tasty tenor sax work by Steve White. In addition, there are cuts with boogie piano, ballads and acoustic guitar, as well as the CD's only cover, a slow, almost ominous version of Leiber and Stoller's Love Potion Number Nine. These guys have honed their chops at Southern California clubs and as openers for groups including Duke Robillard, Little Feat, The Blasters, Roomful of Blues and others. It sure shows in this fun mixture of blues, roots and jazz.

    Months go by, I wounder why, I'm left here on my own
    could it be my destiny, is to live this life alone
    these dark and rainy days have turned me cold

    I need you to try to understand darlin'
    I wasn't born with a silver spoon
    Oh no
    (incomprehensible) everything that I've got babe
    Oh I've got it from paying my dues

    Time to get rid of my heartache
    And try to find someone to love
    Yeah
    Oh it's time to get rid of my heartache babe
    And I try to find someone to love
    I know it's been a long rocky road babe
    But you know I had my fun
    Oh I had my fun baby

    West Coast blues guitarist Kirk Fletcher has logged time with everyone from the Fabulous Thunderbirds to Charlie Musselwhite, but he kicked off his solo career with I'M HERE AND I'M GONE. The album shows a guitarist who has assimilated the innovations of artists like B.B. King and Buddy Guy and channeled them into something contemporary, with traces of funk and R&B adding some extra groove juice.

  • Chris Jones - Long After Youre Gone

    7:05

    Album: Smoke And Noise, Lyrics:
    I heart you're goin' on a joumey
    And your route is laid out plain
    Goin' where the sun shines every day
    No more heartache, no more pain
    Don't you pack those bags too full my friend
    Make sure you're travellin' light
    But take enough of my love with you
    To keep you warm at night
    And I could be singin' this song
    Long after you're gone
    And I could be singin' this song
    Long after you're gone
    I hope that journey takes you everywhere
    That you ever wanted to go
    Hope the bad bits go past real quick
    And the good times toll real slow
    And I could be singin' this song
    Long after you're gone
    And I could be singin' this song
    Long after you're gone
    Now the heavens are weeping
    And I will not be sleeping tonight
    Pray to that unseen star
    That no matter where you are
    You're gonna be alright
    ‘Cause we're all on some kind of joumey
    Tomorrow I could be leaving too
    But where I end up going
    I'll take a little piece of you
    You could be singin' this song
    Long after I'm gone
    And I could be singin' this song
    Long after you're gone
    Someone will be singin' this song
    Long after you're gone
    Long after you're gone

    Jones was born in Reno, Nevada. At the age of five, he began playing the guitar. A few years later, he decided to become a professional musician and when he was 11 years old, he got admitted to a program at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, Maryland. There he discovered the idol of his younger years, Johann Sebastian Bach, to whom he dedicated his Sonata in D. For this sonata, Jones was awarded the conservatory's Young Composer of the Year award.

    Shortly thereafter, he discovered the blues and started listening to Robert Johnson, James Taylor and Little Feat.

    In 1976, Jones joined the U.S. Army and was stationed in Adenine's, Germany. During this time, the foundation for his musical career in Europe was laid. Over the following decades, he played guitar on albums of artists such as Sara K., Allan Taylor and Reinhard Mey. He toured and recorded solo and with the blues harmonica musician Steve Baker.

  • Workshy - Its Too Late

    3:59

    It's Too Late... ♡
    by Carole King
    cover by Workshy

    Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time
    There's something wrong here
    There can be no denying
    One of us is changing
    Or maybe we've just stopped trying

    And it's too late baby, now it's too late
    Though we really did try to make it
    Something inside has died and I can't hide
    And I just can't fake it

    It used to be so easy living here with you
    You were light and breezy
    And I knew just what to do
    Now you look so unhappy
    And I feel like a fool

    And it's too late baby, now it's too late
    Though we really did try to make it
    Something inside has died
    and I can't hide it
    And I just can't fake it

    There'll be good times again for me and you
    But we just can't stay together
    Don't you feel it too
    Still I'm glad for what we had
    And how I once loved you

    But it's too late baby, now it's too late
    Though we really did try to make it
    Something inside has died and I can't hide
    And I just can't fake it

    Don't you know that I...
    I just can't fake it
    Oh it's too late my baby
    Too late my baby
    You know
    It's too late my baby...

  • Tino Gonzales - Catch Me When I Fall

    10:33

    Album: Tequila Nights
    Born in the Southside of the Bluestown Chicago in 1951, Tino Gonzales, grew up with the sounds of Latin, Blues, R & B, Jazz, and Soul. All have contributed to his musical foundations. Having served his apprenticeship with a wide range of blues, pop and jazz greats he eventually set off on his solo career in 1985.
    His music encompasses all of his varied cultural and musical influences resulting in a unique sound that can not easily be labeled in terms of conventional categories – but if one had to sum it up in one word it would have to be passion!

    Album: Fire On The Floor (2016)
    Lyrics:
    One, two, three
    He plays so sexy to me
    Three, four, five, six
    Kit's got some brand new licks
    Six, seven, eight
    Down by the snake at the lake
    There's this joint that's ready to blow
    Every hound in the band's gotta sound
    Howling away it must be judgment day
    They run it down like a cat in a hole
    That's the way they do it
    That's the way they roll
    They call it jazz, man
    The bass pocket is point
    They call it jazz, man
    The trumpet's jumpin' the joint
    They shake it down, down, down
    Like voodoo from a crow
    That's the way they do it
    That's the way they roll
    Checkers and dice
    Rule the back of the room
    Cisco on ice
    Always a reasonable price
    Women in heels, heels, heels
    In any every color she feels
    This joint's gonna blow your mind
    The drums be breaking a sweat
    The man is as hot as a high roller's bet
    The sticks click like time on a clock
    When you think it's over
    They're just beginning to rock!
    They call it jazz, man
    The bass pocket is tight
    They call it jazz, man
    The trumpet's blinding the light
    They shake it down, down, down
    Like fire in a hole
    That's the way they do it
    That's the way they roll

    Album: Rhythm & Blues 2013
    Lyrics
    i've been .. so bad, since she's been gone
    i've tried to take comfort
    in some old sad song
    cause i feel a little better
    no one someone hurts the way i do
    yeah! when i'm this far down
    all that makes me happy is the blues

    all they talk on TV
    they shout about something
    nobody listen
    nobody say nothing
    seem like my old guitar
    is the only face i find the truth (yeah)
    this all world is going crazy,
    all that makes me happy is the blues

    i'd love to hear that sweet Memphi's song
    and that good old funky rock n roll
    oh when i need some healing
    the only thing i turn to
    all that makes me happy is the BLUES

    Album: Live At The Narrows
    Lyrics:
    I remember you
    You were full of broken bones
    I tried to bring you cigarettes
    You said just leave me alone
    I remember you
    You were locked in a padded room
    I tried to teach you solitaire
    You just hollered at the moon
    I remember you
    I remember you

    I remember you
    We were Bonnie and Clyde
    We thought we'd go down in history
    I guess we changed our minds
    You're a hundred worlds away now
    I’'m sure it’s for the best
    You're practically a stranger now
    But you stand out from the restCause I remember you
    I remember you

    I remember you
    You told the stories of your scars
    We kept each others secrets
    And slept in empty cars

    I remember you
    I showed you how to kiss
    I let you shoot my hats off
    ‘Cause I knew you wouldn'’t miss
    And I remember you
    I remember you

    I remember you
    We would’'ve died intertwined
    We talked in tongues of a kinship
    We could only deny
    Now you think you're anonymous
    A masked face without a name
    But I know you're one of us
    Underneath you're still the same
    And I remember you
    I remember you

  • The Black Circles - Bad Luck

    9:39

    Album: From The Top, Lyrics:
    If bad luck was money
    I'd be a rich man
    If I ever had good luck
    I could count it on one hand
    You know I've seen the rich of riches
    yeah and I've seen the poor
    But if there is one thing now, I have never once doubted
    Doubted in my life before

    If envy and jealousy
    were my one way ticket in
    I'd been missing that last train home
    Because I know where I've been
    Oh I've seen the dark of darkness
    And I've turned away the light
    Because if there is one thing I hate
    Now is living without fire

    If bad luck was money
    Now I'd be a rich man
    If I ever had good luck
    I could count it on one hand
    And now I've seen the darkness
    And now I've turned away the light
    Because that is the one thing I have never ever, doubted
    Never doubted
    That I've never doubted in my life

    Thanks to youorangeu2 for the lyrics

    The way your acting lately makes me doubt
    You have always been my baby, baby
    Seems the flame in your heart has gone out

    Well a fellow is a creature
    Who has always been strange
    Just when you think you're his
    He's gone and made a change

    Is you is or is you ain't my baby
    Has my baby found somebody new

    Or is my baby still my baby too

    7:43

    Album: No Surrender , Albert King Cover
    Lyrics:
    If you're down and out and you feel real hurt
    Come on over to the place where I work
    And all your loneliness I'll try to soothe
    I'll play the #Blues for you

    Don't be afraid come on in
    You might run across some of your old friends
    All your loneliness I gotta soothe
    I'll play the blues for you

    I got no big name and I ain't no big star
    I play the blues for you on my guitar
    All your loneliness I'll try to soothe
    I 'll play the blues for you

    As he grew up in the L.A. area, Daniel was heavily influenced by the blues greats Albert KIng, B.B. King, and Albert Collins. As a kid, Daniel would hang outside clubs like the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach to hear these blues legends perform and wait for a glimpse of them through the curtains. After cutting his teeth in South Central L.A. blues clubs with “Mighty Mouth” Delmar Evans, who worked with the Johnny Otis Show, Castro backed other great artists from Otis’ band, including Pee Wee Crayton and Little Esther Phillips. He also recorded and toured with many other artists including legendary Small Faces singer-bassist Ronnie Lane.

    Album: Sing Your Own Song, , Scenes from the movie Elevataor To The Gallows by Louis Malle - Buy:
    Lyrics:

    It was a dark and stormy night
    And the rain came pouring down
    It was a dark and stormy night
    And the rain cams pouring down

    Searching for my baby
    But my baby can not be be found

    I walk the streets past midnight
    Until the break of day
    I walk the streets past midnight
    Until the break of day

    Looking for my baby
    And the love he took away

    I saw his car pass by
    And he was with another girl
    I saw his car pass by
    And he was with another girl

    He broke my heart in two
    People, you know just how I feel

    (( instrumental ))

    They said he killed a stranger
    But I knew that was just a lie
    They said he killed a stranger
    But I knew that was just a lie

    Because he swore to kill my husband
    And stay with me til the end of time

    Thanks to Josh Headrick

    Blue Largo was formed by guitarist Eric Lieberman and vocalist Alicia Aragon in 1999.Blue Largo has always been a traditional 1940’s / ‘50’s era blues band, specializing in covers by such artists as Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, Louis Jordan, T Bone Walker and Julia Lee. Eric never considered himself a songwriter, but has rather always focused on paying tribute to the great artists whom he loves so much. However, he jotted down a few ideas over the years, which he and Alicia revisited when they decided to record their current album, and lo and behold, “Sing Your Own Song” contains seven original songs, which the band is most proud of and excited about! These original songs deal with life’s big issues…….. the challenges, despair, hope, perseverance, and ultimately prevailing! Music wise, the record contains everything from Louisiana swamp grooves to gospel, rhythm and blues, jump blues, sensual ballads and lowdown acoustic country blues, and Blue Largo is ready and rearing to bring it all to their live shows.

    For his feature debut, twenty-four-year-old Louis Malle brought together a mesmerizing performance by Jeanne Moreau, evocative cinematography by Henri Decaë, and a now legendary jazz score by Miles Davis. Taking place over the course of one restless Paris night, Malle’s richly atmospheric crime thriller stars Moreau and Maurice Ronet as lovers whose plan to murder her husband (his boss) goes awry, setting off a chain of events that seals their fate. A career touchstone for its director and female star, Elevator to the Gallows was an astonishing beginning to Malle’s eclectic body of work, and it established Moreau as one of the most captivating actors ever to grace the screen.

    Cajun moon
    Where does your power lie
    As you move
    Across the southern sky
    You took my babe
    Way too soon
    What have you done
    Cajun moon

    Someday babe
    When you want your man
    And you find him gone
    Just like the wind
    Don't trouble your mind
    Whatever you do
    'Cause Cajun moon
    Took him from you

    Cajun moon
    Where does your power lie
    As you move
    Across the southern sky
    You took my babe
    Way too soon
    What have you done
    Cajun moon

    When daylight fades
    The night comes on
    You can hear the silence
    Of this song
    Don't trouble your mind
    Whatever you do
    'Cause he got me
    Like he got you

    Cajun moon
    Where does your power lie
    As you move
    Across the southern sky
    You took my babe
    Way too soon
    What have you done
    Cajun moon

    Lame such a lame excuse for lust
    With some big time loosin’

    When I used you for my pride, Yah don’t ya know I done love wrong
    I said I done love ya... oh I done love wrong
    When I used you for my hunger, Oh I said I done... I done love wrong

    How numb, how numb I was
    How I really didn’t know
    How I took love for granted
    From such a precious soul
    When you needed me, oh when ya needed me Daddy
    I turned away
    Feelin’ selfish, selfish to the bone
    I left you hurtin’... Oh I left you hurtin’ and alone

  • Slow Blow Fuse - The Bottle

    7:48

    Album: Slide On In, The tune sounds very similar to SRV's version of Tin Pan Alley - still a very cool take on this classic melody. Lyrics:
    Let me tell you people,
    Something that's been going on.
    It's not a story about love and hate, It's not a story about right or wrong.

    Look a' here, look a' here

    I'm just standing here with that bottle in my hand. And I don't know where I been.

    Listen to me people, what I tell you is the truth. I can't live without that woman. Baby, I can't live without you!

    Look a' here, look a' here

    I'm just standing here with that bottle in my hand. And I don't know where I've been, and I don't know a whole lot else.

    I've spent my last nickle,
    and my courage don't go no more. Can't you see me driftin' and driftin', Lord, from door to door? And if you see me runnin',
    runnin' through town, make sure you catch me when I fall, baby, the fall - I'm going down.

    Look a' here, look a' here

    I'm just standing here with that bottle in my hand, yes I am.
    'Cause I don't know where you've been, and I don't know who I am.

    Album: Hard To Love, Buy: Lyrics:
    Oh babe, I know I've been bad to you (x2)
    Oh baby, you know I took your love and broke your heart in two
    I've never been no good always been the trouble kind( x2)
    I tried to warn you when we met
    but you already made up your mind
    I'm a force of nature babe, you can't stop this train
    Poison arrow to your heart and a bullet in your brain
    Nothing you can do will save me I was born to be alone
    Need the lord above to
    have mercy on my soul
    Oh babe, I've been so bad I'm an evil hearted woman
    And I don't deserve no good man
    Oh babe, I know I done you wrong Oohoo,
    I know I know I done you wrong
    Taste like sugar on your tongue but I'm rotten to the bone
    You know I taste like sugar on your tongue
    but I'm rotten to the bone
    I'm an evil hearted woman and I don't deserve no good man
    No, I don't deserve no good man.

    Oh.. she got some ways
    Check it up

    Woman’s got ways
    To make a man lose his mind
    So when you ain’t thinking straight
    And you’re walking half blind

    While she leaves you around
    In a haze and a daze
    It’s a crime and a pity
    But a woman’s got ways yeah
    You know, a woman’s got ways

    Woman’s got charms
    And a sweet soothing voice
    But when she gets a hooks in you
    Boy, you ain’t got much choice

    She’ll take your time and your money
    And leave you half crazed
    But you will love every minute
    Cause a woman’s got ways... yeah
    You know a woman’s got ways

    When God made woman
    He makes fools out of men
    When you make one mistake buddy
    You’ll soon make it again.. yeah

    Woman’s got something
    That every man craves
    And it gives her the power
    To make us all slaves

    That ‘s the rule of the game, son

    You can’t beat the system, buddy,

    Guitarist, singer, and songwriter Johnnie Bassett grew up with blues music all around him in his native Florida. His unique ability to combine jump blues and Delta stylings gave his playing a distinctive sound. The self-taught guitarist recalled seeing Tampa Red, Arthur Big Boy Crudup, and other classic blues artists at fish fries in his grandmother's backyard. Bassett cited Aaron T-Bone Walker as a major influence, as well as B.B. and Albert King, Tiny Grimes, and Billy Butler.

  • Rene Marie - I Wanna Be Evil

    4:45

    Lyrics
    Prim and proper, the girl who's never been kissed,
    Well I'm tired of being pure and not chased!
    Like something that seeks its level,
    I wanna go to the devil!

    I wanna be evil,
    I wanna spit tacks!
    I wanna be evil
    And cheat at jacks!

    I wanna be wicked,
    I wanna tell lies!
    I wanna be mean
    And throw mud pies

    I want to wake up in the morning with that dark brown taste,
    I wanna see some dissipation in my face!

    I wanna be evil,
    I wanna be mad!
    But more than that,
    I wanna be bad!

    I wanna be evil
    And trump an ace,
    Just to see
    My partner's face!

    I wanna be nasty,
    I wanna be cruel!
    I wanna be daring,
    I wanna shoot pool!

    And in the theater I want to change my seat,
    Just so I can step on everybody's feet!

    I wanna be evil,
    I wanna hurt flies!
    I wanna sing songs
    Like the guy who crie-ie-ie-ie-ie-ies!

    John Lyons grew up on a farm in South Haven, MI, but moved to Zurich, Switzerland, in 2001. He is a very eclectic songwriter, a very expressive guitarist, and quite the observer of the human condition. For his third album, “Sing Me Another Song,” he lets his storyteller’s soul run free on thirteen original songs that draw from everyday life that all listeners can relate to, mostly dealing with themes of love, loss, and hope for a brighter day further on up the road.

    Collezione Italiana CD 2
    Lyrics:
    Autumn in New York, why does it seem so inviting?
    Autumn in New York, it spells the thrill of first nighting
    Glittering crowds and shimmering clouds in canyons of steel
    They're making me feel, I'm home.

    Its autumn in New York that brings the promise of new love
    Autumn in New York is often mingled with pain
    Dreamers with empty hands, may sigh for exotic lands
    Its autumn in New York, its good to live it again.

    Autumn in New York, the gleaming rooftops at sundown
    Autumn in New York, it lifts you up when you're run down
    Jaded rose and gay divorcees who lunch at the Ritz
    Will tell you that its divine.

    This autumn in New York transforms the slums into Mayfair
    Autumn in New York, you'll need no castle in Spain
    Lovers that bless the dark on benches in Central Park
    Greet autumn in New York, its good to live it again.

    Fades away


    Well-known for his role in Chicago blues, Sumlin performed with Howlin’ Wolf from 1955 until the singer’s death in 1976, after which he continued performing with the late blues legend’s band under the moniker The Wolf Pack and released a string of solo albums to varying degrees of success.

    His playing style, characterized by sudden bursts of noise, start-stop patterns and use of sustain, was achieved without the use of a traditional guitar pick and was a formative influence on the style of The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards. His frequent use of abrasive, shattering noise also inspired rock icons like Jimi Hendrix to experiment with guitar tone.

    Lara Price is a survivor…

    Born in the war torn country of Vietnam in 1975 and abandoned at birth, Lara became a part of the controversial “Operation Baby Lift”, a mass evacuation of orphans from South Vietnam to the United States. As 90 percent of the orphaned babies did not survive, her journey out of Vietnam to her new home was nothing short of a miracle. Indeed, Lara is truly a survivor in every sense.

    Price discovered the power of music at the tender age of 6, when she started taking piano lessons in England with legendary 80’s music innovator Howard Jones. At the age of 12 she found her singing voice. Price was influenced and encouraged by her junior high and high school choir teacher, Blake Olmstead. She continued her vocal studies operatically with Dr. Lynn Berg at BSU. She arrived in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1997 to pursue her dream of singing in a band. By 1998, Price began running her own blues jam at JJ’s Blues in San Jose, and was featured in an inspiring article about blues jams in the September issue of the Blues Revue Magazine.The journey of Lara’s blues band (The Lara Price Band) includes tours across the United States and China. It also includes five CD’s that Price has produced, co-written, and is featured playing drums, guitar, and back up vocals. Lara and her band have shared the bill with R&B legends, Etta James, James Brown, Buddy Guy, Leon Russell and many more.

    5:50

    Album: Saving All My Love, Tom Waits cover Buy: Lyrics:
    Well she's up against the register with an apron and a spatula,
    Yesterday's deliveries, tickets for the bachelors
    She's a moving violation from her conk down to her shoes
    Well, it's just an invitation to the blues
    And you feel just like Cagney, she looks like Rita Hayworth
    At the counter of the Schwab's drugstore
    You wonder if she might be single, she's a loner and likes to mingle
    Got to be patient, try and pick up a clue
    She said How you gonna like 'em, over medium or scrambled?
    You say 'anyway's the only way', be careful not to gamble
    On a guy with a suitcase and a ticket getting out of here
    It's a tired bus station and an old pair of shoes
    This ain't nothing but an invitation to the blues
    But you can't take your eyes off her, get another cup of java
    It's just the way she pours it for you, joking with the customers
    Mercy mercy, Mr. Percy, there ain't nothing back in Jersey
    But a broken-down jalopy of a man I left behind
    And the dream that I was chasing, and a battle with booze
    And an open invitation to the blues
    But she used to have a sugar daddy and a candy-apple Caddy
    And a bank account and everything, accustomed to the finer things
    He probably left her for a socialite, and he didn't 'cept at night
    And then he's drunk and never even told her that her cared
    So they took the registration, and the car-keys and her shoes
    And left her with an invitation to the blues
    Cause there's a Continental Trailways leaving local bus tonight, good evening
    You can have my seat, I'm sticking round here for a while
    Get me a room at the Squire, the filling station's hiring
    And I can eat here every night, what the hell have I got to lose?
    Got a crazy sensation, go or stay? now I gotta choose
    And I'll accept your invitation to the blues

    6:33

    Album: #Blues for Schuur, Buy: Lyrics:
    Some people say - that the songs I sing are blue
    And maybe what they say, what they say…
    Just might be true
    But let me tell you – this is the way I really feel
    And everything I do
    It’s not fake – it’s really real

    And I’m not ashamed to sing the blues
    Oh-ooh-oh… I’m not ashamed to sing the blues

    Some people say - that the blues are really dumb
    They just don’t know… they don’t know where I’m coming from
    And I just wanna tell you - It’s the way I feel inside
    ‘Cause love and happiness - will put tears in your eyes

    And I’m not ashamed to sing the blues
    NO-ooh-oh… I’m not ashamed to sing the blues

    Guitar solo

    And I’m not ashamed to sing the blues
    NO-ooh-oh… I’m not ashamed to sing the blues

    Some people say - that my songs are just too sad
    I don’t think so, when I think about the fun I’ve had
    Livin’ and lovin’, failin’ and achievin’
    Then laughin’ and cryin’ – Ooh…
    Leavin’ and-a grievin’

    And I’m not ashamed to sing the blues
    Gonna say it again - I’m not ashamed to sing the blues
    No-no-no…. no… not me… (scat…)

    Vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur is as eclectic as she is brilliant. A longtime disciple of Dinah Washington and other legendary jazz singers of the '40s and '50s, Schuur has built a stellar career by embracing not only the jazz of her parents' generation, but also the pop music of her own youth during the late 1950s and '60s. In a recording career that spans nearly three decades - and includes two Grammy Awards and three Grammy nominations - Schuur's music has explored nearly every corner of the 20th century American musical landscape.

    Myers was born in Laurel, Mississippi. He acquired juvenile cataracts at age seven and was left legally blind for the rest of his life, despite corrective surgery.] He could make out shapes and shadows, but could not read print at all; he was taught Braille.

    He acquired an interest in music while a schoolboy in Jackson, Mississippi, and became skilled enough at playing the trumpet and drums that he received a nondegree scholarship from the American Conservatory of Music (formerly the American Conservatory School of Music) in Chicago. Myers attended school by day and at night frequented the nightclubs of the South Side.

    There he met and was sitting in with Jimmy Rogers, Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, Little Walter, Hound Dog Taylor, Robert Lockwood, Jr., and Elmore James. Myers played drums with Elmore James on a fairly steady basis from 1952 until James's death, in 1963, and is credited on many of James's historic recordings for Chess Records. In 1956, Myers wrote and recorded what was to be his most famous single, Sleeping in the Ground, a song that has been covered by Blind Faith, Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, and many other blues artists; it was also featured on Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour show on Sleep.

  • SmokeHouse - Cadillac In The Swamp

    6:05

    Album: Cadillac In The Swamp, Buy Album: Lyrics: Ah now let me tell y'all something here
    Now now this ain't no lie
    Y'all come on over here
    And let's sit by the fire
    Way down south
    Where the beatles and cottonmouth breed
    I seen something down there y'all
    That took my breath away
    I saw a black Cadillac
    Cruising real slow
    Way down the swamps
    Where man dare go
    The windows went down slowly
    There set a chauffeur with no head
    Well I set there trembling y'all
    Never been so damned scared...
    (CHORUS)
    Whoa oh that Cadillac yeah
    Whoa oh down in the swamp
    Ah Lord
    Thick fog rolled in
    I could barely see the lights
    And that old ghost Cadillac y'all
    Faded into the night
    I ran home and told my daddy
    Just what I seen
    He reached for his knife people
    Never saw him look so damned mean
    He said look a here boy
    It was back in '52
    It was late one night
    Your mammy saw it too
    (CHORUS)
    well your mammy got so scared
    She packed up and moved away
    And she swore to the Lord
    She'd never come back to stay
    It was about three days later
    I went hunting that night
    And I found yo mama dead boy
    Tire tracks right across her back
    So my daddy grabbed his shotgun
    He said boy show me them tracks
    Now whatever you hear
    Just don't look back
    (CHORUS)
    He went down them swamps
    With that old big dick hound
    About 20 minutes later
    That old hound began to sound
    Five shots rung out
    I was froze in my tracks
    And I thought about what daddy said y'all
    So I didn't look back
    That old hound kept running
    With his tongue hung to the ground
    That old ghost Cadillac ya'll
    No where to be found
    (CHORUS)
    I said hey daddy
    What happened to that old hound?
    He said that old Cadillac boy
    Done done road him down
    That Cadillac killed yo mammy
    And it's going to get me
    So you get out of these swamps boy
    And set yourself free
    That ghost Cadillac
    You better hide
    That ghost Cadillac ya'll
    Headless chauffeur inside
    That ghost Cadillac
    Patrolling them swamps
    That ghost Cadillac
    Blood stains in the trunk
    Have mercy
    Have mercy
    Yeah lord.

    A swampy groove runs through the music. The song writing is superb and very humorous at times. Powerhouse harp playing and great musicianship all around. Hypnotizin' Boogie Blues, that's what it is. Very enjoyable and bluesy to the core.

    Album: Eb Davis Bluesband ‎– Good Time Blues
    LYRICS:
    now what you gonna do,
    when I leave and turn my back on you?
    what you gonna do? what you gonna do,
    when I leave and turn my back on you?
    you'll be standing around, screamin' and cryin'
    but there ain't a thing that you can do
    you walk on around in a day just about to go out of
    your head you walk on around in a day (daze?)
    just about to go out of your head
    you might even began to wonder wonder
    if you would be better off dead
    I treated you so kind better than any man should
    no matter what I do for you it still didn't do me no good
    what you gonna do? what you gonna do,
    when I leave and turn my back on you?
    you'll be standing around, screamin' and cryin'
    but there ain't a damn thing that you can do
    I went out and work all day
    you stayed home and beg
    bring you all my money but you still talk out of your head
    what you gonna do? what you gonna do,
    when I leave and turn my back on you?
    you'll be standing around screamin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin, cryin.

    To me the Blues means to put it very simply the truth. Because it is a music that tells the truth of a people and their feelings, thoughts, struggles, and joys.My music comes from the heart, brain, and the soul. The heart because when I sing it I feel exactly what I'm singing and expressing. The brain because I try and have the know how to bring across to my audience what I'm conveying. The soul because something that I cant truly feel or understand then I will not do it. I put all three into every performance, no matter how small or large. Eb Davis
    Eb Davis was born in 1945 in the Delta town of Elaine, Arkansas and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. In the sixties he moved to New York where he spend many years performing before moving to Germany.
    In 2008 EB Davis was inducted into the Blues Hall of fame as an official Blues Ambassador to the state of Arkansas. He was also in 2008 voted by The Deutsche Rock music Verein as the best R&B singer in Europe.

    Album: Mike Griffin & The Unknown #Blues Band Live

    If you are an artist and want to be featured on the channel see this link:
    Towering overhead at 6'10, you could easily make a case that there's no bigger blues musician than Big Mike Griffin.

    Big Mike comes from a proud tradition of journeyman blues musicians. He has performed on stages across North America and Europe; every place from juke joints and roadhouses to Turner Field and Riverfront Stadium.

    Big Mike has also been a biker for more than 30 years. His love of both music and motorcycles spawned a new type of Motormusic that has been widely accepted as a new and exciting form of #BluesRock.

    Born and raised in Lawton, Oklahoma, Big Mike was introduced to music at an early age. My Dad played so there was always a guitar or fiddle laying around the house. It seems like I've been playing as long as I've been alive. Later, he began listening to blues artists like T-Bone Walker, Paul Butterfield, and Mike Bloomfield. His blues education was further enhanced by late night highway trips to Texas to catch legends like Freddie King, Albert King, and Albert Collins.

    The sky is cryin....Can't you see the tears roll down the street
    The sky is cryin....Can't you see the tears roll down the street
    I've been looking for my baby
    And I wonder where can she be
    I saw my baby early one morning....She was walking on down the street
    I saw my baby early this morning....She was walking on down the street
    You know it hurt me, hurt me so bad
    It made my poor heart skip a beat
    I've got a real real real real bad feelin
    That my baby she don't love me no more
    I've got a real real bad feelin that my baby don't love me no more
    You know the sky, the sky's been cryin
    Can you see the tears roll down my nose

    Lay your cards on the table baby
    I wanna see your cheating hand
    Lay your cards on the table woman
    I wanna see your cheating hand
    I got all the aces woman
    Only pair you got is you and your other man

    I go to work in the morning
    And I'm gone all the day
    Soon as I leave the house
    You break out the cards and you wanna start to play
    But I've got the deck marked woman
    And I know what's in your little hand
    So tell me right now little darlin'
    Is it me or your other man?

    You think you're playin' with the straights
    But I've got the cards you need
    I've given you everything a woman could ever want
    Treating you like a queen
    But you don't realize he's a joker
    And with a joker you can't play
    Work my hands to the bone for you baby
    And loved you each and every day
    You did me wrong
    And now, baby now I'm gone away

    Some naked women dancin' drunk with a bottle of wine
    they 're crossing down the highway
    you know some naked women dancin drunk with a bottle of wine
    I can smell their scent from far away
    It's Sunday night I'm busy right now, I'm trying, i'm trying to think for a little while so don't speak darlin'

    I think you know this song plays because you broke me down baby
    you broke my spirit now you 're fine without me
    I thing you know this song plays because of you baby
    it plays again and again every night you make the whole moon crying
    It's Sunday night I'm busy right know I'm trying, I'm trying to think for a little while so don't speak darlin'

    It's easy now you get your own lonely way
    and maybe it's not so lonely for you baby
    I haven't touch your book again I hope I won't
    but something tells me that it's coming
    it's easy now you get your own lonely way
    but maybe it's not so lonely for you baby
    I haven't touch your book again I hope I won't

Some of his musical influences are ZZ Top, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Rory Gallagher, Tom Waits, Jeff Haley, Mark Knopfler and many more. John always believed that if you get tied up with the blues, maybe you won't be rewarded with happiness and fame but you'll always learn something new about yourself. Wherever you win or lose, you'll always remember the way you've started.

  • Pete Gage - Blues Has Got Me

    5:34

    Album: Left Over #Blues, Buy: Lyrics:
    Blues has got me,
    and I have to make a brand new start.
    Blues has got me,
    and I have to make a brand new start.
    Nothing I can do to please you babe,
    so I guess we have to part.
    You were the one,
    told me your love was true.
    You were the one, babe,
    told me your love was true.
    But you left me for another man,
    now what I'm gonna do?

    So many times,
    I've asked you to come home.
    So many times, babe,
    I've asked you to come home.
    But I've finally realized,
    that you're really gone.
    Blues has got me,
    blues has gotta hold on.
    Blues has got me, babe,
    blues has gotta hold on.
    Only one thing I ask you,
    don't forget me please.

    Pete Gage: I sing and play blues piano in various settings from solo to the full band. The Pete Gage Blues Trio, presents laid-back standard blues tunes with a #jazz -y tinge, whilst my band, The Pete Gage Band, is characterised by original and powerful renditions of classic blues tunes from the early days of blues music up to the present time. I am a primarily a live gigging blues musician, but I also also write songs from hard-driving blues through to soul ballads and even in folk styles. I record all my songs, inviting many of my musical associates to contribute. But I will often play bass guitar, lead & rhythm guitars myself, as well as all manner of keyboards.

    Ray Charles Cover Lyrics: One of these days and it won't be long
    You're gonna look for me and I'll be gone
    'Cause I believe (I believe, yes I believe)
    I say I believe right now (I believe, yes I believe)
    Well I believe to my soul now,
    Tryin' to make a fool of me (I believe it, I believe it)

    Well you're goin' 'round here with your head so hard,
    I think I'm gonna have to use my rod
    'Cause I believe (I believe, yes I believe)
    I say I believe right now (I believe, yes I believe)
    Well I believe to my soul now
    Tryin' to make a fool of me (I believe it, I believe it)

    Last night you were dreaming and I heard you say
    Oh, Johnny when you know my name is Ray
    That's why I believe right now (I believe, yes I believe)
    I say I believe right now (I believe, yes I believe)
    Whoa I believe to my soul now
    Tryin' to make a fool of me (I believe it)

    Album | Raise Your Hands 2013
    Lyrics:Put on my red dress, and I went out of town
    Had fun for the first time, since you put me down
    Now it seems you want me, to come back to you
    Just what makes you think, I'd be such a fool
    Give it up baby, I am tired of playing your game
    Because tonight, tonight
    Baby I'll be alright
    Cuz tonight tonight tonight
    I finally forgot your name
    I use to do more crying than one person should
    I almost forgot what its like to really really feel good
    All the men I met tonight, treated me like a prize
    I aint been treated so well, in such a really long time
    That's why I need to tell you
    That's why I am here to say
    Because tonight, tonight
    Baby I'll be alright
    Cuz, tonight tonight
    You use to call me late at night, to see if you were still
    Still on my mind
    But tonight…

  • Trampled Under Foot - Its A Mans Mans Mans World

    5:49

    Album:Badlands

    Lyrics:
    This is a man's world, this is a man's world
    But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

    You see, man made the cars to take us over the road
    Man made the train to carry the heavy load
    Man made electric light to take us out of the dark
    Man made the boat for the water, like Noah made the ark

    This is a man's, man's, man's world
    But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl

    Man thinks about our little bitty baby girls and our baby boys
    Man made them happy, 'cause man made them toys
    And after man make everything, everything he can
    You know that man makes money, to buy from other man

    This is a man's world
    But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing, not one little thing, without a woman or a girl
    He's lost in the wilderness
    He's lost in bitterness, he's lost lost

    Rainin', a shine or a-snowin',
    Everything's so doggone hum-drum!

    Sure would do me a world o' good,

    Billy Branch was discovered by Willie Dixon, the father of modern Chicago Blues, while Billy was still in college. Willie encouraged Billy to finish his college education, which he did, but instead of going to law school after receiving his political science degree, Billy began touring with the Willie Dixon Chicago All-Stars. This gave Billy the unique opportunity to travel and work as an under study for the legendary Carey Bell who was planning to leave the All-Stars and form his own band. When Carey took his leave, the young Billy Branch took his place, touring with Willie Dixon for 6 years.

    Eamonn was born in the center of Dublin, the capital city of Ireland and was raised on a North side Suburb where he started out on the acoustic guitar at eight years of age. Earliest influences included Slade, Cat Stevens, Neil Young and Rory Gallagher. By twelve he was singing along with his guitar and performing at Church Folk Masses.
    2017 sees Eamonn, (now recognized as one of Ireland’s finest guitarists), release his new double album titled: “Like there’s no tomorrow” on Sireena Records (cat. No: Sir 2171) 18 tracks, and again using the tried and tested Power trio format. Eamonn recorded this gem with ex. Gary Moore’s powerhouse rhythm section consisting of Jonathan Noyce on bass and Darrin Mooney on the drums, and produced by Grammy award producer Chris Tsangarides (Thin Lizzy, Black Sabbath, Mountain).

    Eamonn McCormack is a true artist, a master of his craft who always performs with that heart-felt passion synonymous with true Irish music legends in the making…

    When a girl reach the age of 18

    And hat's the kind of little girl
    You can never find at home.
    Come and see me early in the morning,
    Just about the break of day.
    Want to see me hug my pillow
    Where my baby used to lay?
    One drink of wine,
    Two drinks of gin.
    Pretty young got me
    In the shape I'm in.
    Chorus
    I pass by the juke joint,
    Look through the door.
    She's doing the boogie-woogie
    In the middle of the floor.

  • Tony Joe White - Did Somebody Make A Fool Out Of You

    4:53

    Featuring Eric Clapton, Album: Uncovered
    Lyrics:
    Did somebody make a fool out of you
    Did somebody mistreat you

    Well I know you've been holdin' back
    You got a lot more love than that
    Did somebody make a fool out of you

    Did somebody run away with your heart
    Did somebody tear you whole a part

    Well I know you've been treated bad
    But you don't have to look so sad
    Did somebody make a fool out of you

    Did somebody make a fool out of you
    Did somebody mistreat you

    And I know you've been treated bad
    But you don't have to look so sad
    Did somebody make a fool out of you

    Oh yeah, Oh, yeah

    Did somebody make a fool out of you
    Did somebody mistreat you


    White has lived long enough to see plenty of changes. His star rose, leading to collaborations with Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Tina Turner, J.J. Cale and other admirers. At the same time, recording and concert technology changed the act of making and playing music into something foreign to those who were schooled on John Lee Hooker, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Hank Williams, backwoods church shouts and hints of the supernatural.

    And so Tony Joe White is more than an artist of unique gifts and sensitivities. He is also a link to a time that may already be lost but will be kept alive as long as he keeps revisiting it in song.

    At the kitchen table in his recording studio south of Nashville, White pours a small glass of red wine with a water chaser and mulls over that idea. “That’s cool with me because the music is all given to me anyway,” he says. “Writing and playing and doing music not for the benefit of having a No. 1 record, just to let it out of your soul, means that somebody has fed it down to you.”

    6:11

    Album:The Home Bartender's Song Book 2011
    Tin Pan: Lyrics:
    Evening, you come and find me
    You always remind me, remind me that my gal is gone
    Evening, l'm deeply under your, your power
    Each minute seems like an hour
    Since my gal is gone
    When the shadows fall on that wall
    That's when l need your lovin' most of all
    What can l do, how can I go on
    Take me, evening, when the dawn is breaking
    I don't want awaken
    Since my gal is gone
    When the shadows fall, when they fall on that wall
    That is when l need your lovin' most of all
    What can l do, what can l do
    How can l go on..
    Won't you take me, Evening,
    when the sun is risin'
    l'm never smilin'
    I don't want awaken Since my gal is gone
    Since my gal is gone.. oh baby.. the shadows fall baby ..

    Mixing rough and tumble #jazz with the gritty side of #blues, Tin Pan offers listeners American roots music that captivates the soul. The band originated out of an innate need for music that meets people exactly where they are, providing an immediate, pure and energetic release from the everyday routine. Jesse Selengut, composer, lead vocalist and trumpet player first felt drawn to create Tin Pan after witnessing how his uninhibited style of performance differed from typical jazz presentations—his had the power to astonish and enrapture audiences with the kind of gusto previously reserved for rock n’ roll shows. Once that seed was planted, there was no question that the project would thrive.

    don’t no body wanna listen
    every body knows a way
    every body knows an answer
    before the question is raised
    Everybody think they know me
    don’t even know my name
    if you really wanna help me
    you got to feel my pain
    walk a mile in my shoes
    walk a mile in my shoes
    walk a mile in my shoes
    before you judge this man
    if you walk in my shoes
    you might understand
    walk a mile in my shoes
    walk a mile in my shoes
    walk a mile in my shoes
    before you judge this man
    if you walk in my shoes
    oh Lord you might understand
    take a little walk…………
