Dark Is The Night
(King, Taub, Davis)

Part 1:
Blues has got me, there is teardrops in my eyes
Yes the blues has got me, there is teardrops in my eyes
Well dark is the night, since my baby said goodbye

Oh how I've suffered since my baby went away
Yes how I've suffered since my baby went away
And I've got that feeling that my baby's gone to stay

Take me back baby, forgive me for the wrong I've done
Yes take me back darling, forgive me for the wrong I've done
Well I know I love you, and you're the only one

(guitar solo)

Yes talk to me baby, call me on the telephone
Yeah talk to me baby, call me on the telephone
Yes the blues has got me, and I want my baby home

Yes if your baby love you, keep her home and treat her nice
Oh if your baby love you, you better keep her home and treat her nice
Well never mistreat a good woman, this is some doggone good advice

Part 2:

(long instrumental intro)

Yes it's been so long since I've seen my baby's face
Well it's been so long since I've seen my baby's face
I'm tellin' you people, no one else can ever take her place

Yes the doorbell is ringing, I know there must be somethin' wrong
Yes the doorbell is ringing, I know it must be somethin' wrong
Well looka here it's my baby, she's done changed her mind and come home

So hurry baby, come on in and close the door
Yes hurry baby, come on in and close the door
Let me put my arms around you baby, so my nights won't be dark no moreback to top
Everyday I Have The Blues
Everyday, everyday I have the blues
Ooh everyday, everyday I have the blues
When you see me worryin' baby, yeah it's you I hate to lose

Whoa nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Whoa nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Well worries and trouble darling, babe you know I've had my share

- solo -

Everyday, everyday, everyday, everyday
Everyday, everyday I have the blues
When you see me worryin' baby, yeah it's you I hate to lose

Whoa nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Whoa nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Well worries and trouble darling, babe you know I've had my shareback to top
Five Long Years
(Eddie Boyd)

If you ever been mistreated
then you know just what I'm talkin' about (2x)
I worked five long years for one woman
and she had the nerve to put me out

I got a job at a steel mill
truckin' steel like a slave (2x)
For five long years every Friday
I went straight home with all of my pay

If you ever been mistreated
you know just what I'm talkin' about (2x)
I worked five long years for a woman
and she had the nerve to put me outback to top
Sweet Sixteen
(BB King speaking:)
How about it? How about it? It takes a lot of people to make it possible,
so give 'em a big hand. Everybody is working to try to make it nicer.
Anyway! As I leave you... a little bit of Sweet Sixteen for the guys -
just a taste - give me C for Sweet Sixteen...

When I first met you baby, baby you were just sweet sixteen
First met you baby, baby you was just sweet sixteen
Just left your home then baby, oh the sweetest thing I'd ever seen

But you wouldn't do nothing for me baby, you wouldn't do anything I asked you to
You wouldn't do nothing for me baby, oh you wouldn't do anything I asked you to
You know you ran away from your home baby, and now you wanna run away from old me too

My brother's in Korea baby, my sister's down in New Orleans
Brother's in Korea baby, oh sister sister down in New Orleans
You know I'm having so much troubles people, baby I wonder what in the world is gonna happen to me

Oh yes sweet sixteen baby... sweet sixteen... oh yes
The sweetest thing baby, oh yes
The sweetest thing I ever seen
You know I'm having so much trouble people, baby I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me

Sweet sixteen... sweet sixteen oh yes
You know I'm having so much trouble people
Baby I wonder
Yes I wonder
Baby I wonder
I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to meback to top
The Thrill Is Gone
The thrill is gone, the thrill is gone away.
The thrill is gone, the thrill is gone away.
You know you done me wrong, baby, and you'll be sorry some day.

The thrill is gone, it's gone away from me.
The thrill is gone, the thrill is gone away from me.
Although I'll still live on, but so lonely I'll be.

The thrill is gone, it's gone for good.
The thrill is gone, it's gone away for good.
someday i know i'll be open armed, baby, just like i know a good man should.

You know i'm free, free now, I'm free from your spell.
I'm free, free now, I'm free from your spell.
And now that it's all over, All I can do is wish you well.back to top
Three O'clock Blues
(Jules Taub - B.B.King)

Now here it is, three o'clock in the morning,
Oh can't even close my eyes. yeah.
It's three o'clock in the morning baby,
Oh, I can't even close my eyes.
Well, I can't find my baby,
Keep on lookin' be satisfied.

I've looked around me, people,
Hey, and my baby she knows she can't be found.
Looked all around me, people,
Oh, my baby, she can't be found.
Well, if I don't find my baby,
I'm going down to the Golden Ground.
That's where the men hang out down there,
They shoot pool, you know.

Goodbye, everybody,
Oh, I believe this is the end,
Oh, goodbye everybody,
Oh I believe this is the end.
You can tell my baby,
To forgive me for my sins.back to top
Troubles, Troubles, Troubles
(King, Ling)

Troubles, trouble, troubles, troubles is all in the world I see
Troubles, trouble, troubles, troubles is all in the world I see
Oh sometimes I wonder, wonder what is gonna become of me

When I wake up early in the mornin', blues and troubles all around my bed
Oh when I wake up early in the mornin', blues and troubles all around my bed
Oh I never will forget people, the last words I heard my baby said

She said I'm leavin' you in the mornin', BB and cryin' won't make me stay
She said I'm leavin' you in the mornin', BB and your cryin' won't make me stay
Ah the more you cry honey, the farther you're goin' to drive me away

Yes all right... (guitar solo)

Oh if you just got to go baby, I hope you will come back one day
Oh yes if you just got to go baby, please come on back some day
Oh but I never will forget baby, baby the way we used to love and playback to top
Why I Sing The Blues
(King, Clark)

You all have been wonderin',
Wonderin' why I sing the blues (2x)
Yeah you just listen
And say you're me instead of you

Ah you won't to or you do get married
To someone for the rest of your life (2x)
Yes and there is always someone else
Whenever you out of sight

You get the affection of a servant
The kindness of a slave (2x)
Yeah you get the love of a dog
That can't even hear a word you say

I try to say something people
Something just to pacify (2x)
I might not have lived right all of my life
But people please believe me I've triedback to top
Woke Up This Morning (My Baby's Gone)
(King, Taub)

I woke up this morning, my baby was gone
Woke up this morning, my baby was gone
I've been so bad, I'm all alone

I ain't got nobody stayin' home with me
I ain't got nobody stayin' home with me
My baby she's gone, I'm in misery

Well baby, I'm all alone
Yes baby, I'm all alone
I ain't had no lovin'
Since my baby's been gone
All right... (guitar solo)

Oh baby, I'm all alone
Oh baby, I'm all alone
My baby she's gone, I'm in misery

Oh baby, come on stay with me
Yes baby, come on stay with me
My baby she's gone, I'm in misery

Oh baby I'm all alone
Oh baby I'm all alone
I ain't had no lovin' since my baby been goneback to top
