Boogie Woogie Woman
I got a boogie-woogie woman
Boogie-woogie all the time
I got a boogie-woogie woman
Boogie-woogie all the time
If she keep on boogyin'
She bound to lose her mind

Well, she boogies in the mornin'
And she boogies all night long
Well, she boogies in the mornin'
And she boogies all night long
Yes, and the...come
She's still goin' strong

Well, she boogies in the mornin'
And she boogies late at night
Well, she boogies in the mornin'
And she boogies late at night
Well, I don't mind her boogyin'
'Cause her boogyin' is all right

Well, she's a bogie-woogie woman
And she boogies all the time
Well, she's a bogie-woogie woman
And she boogies all the time
Well, if keep on boogyin'
She bound to lose her mindback to top
Don't You Want a Man Like Me
Oh baby, don't you want a man like me
Oh baby, don't you want a man like me
I can love you baby
Better than your used-to-be

Oh baby, don't you need a man like me
Oh baby, don't you need a man like me
I can love you baby
Better than any man in town

Oh baby, don't you want a man like me
Oh baby, don't you want a man like me
I can love you baby
Better than your used-to-beback to top
What Can I Do?
People say you love but one at time
For every woman there's a man
My baby say she wasn't put here forever
So she's gonna get as many as she can
What can I do
Yes, I just sing the blues
Well, I just sing the blues
'Cause that's the only thing I know to do

Well, some people may be wrong sometimes
But they can't be wrong all the time
Like they say a cat has nine lives
Nine loves has the woman of mine
What can I do
Yes, I just sing the blues
Well, I just sing the blues
'Cause that's the only thing I know to do

Well, the women are funny these days
They do wrong in so many ways
They'll have a man twiddling his fingers
Or either drinking his life away
What can I do
Yes, I just sing the blues
Well, I just sing the blues
'Cause that's the only thing I know to doback to top
Ten Long Years
Well I had a woman
She was nice, kind and loving to me in every way
Oh I had a woman
She was nice, kind and loving to me in every way
Oh she used to love me
And bring my breakfast to my bed every day

For ten long years
She was my pride and joy
Oh for ten long years
She was my pride and joy
And I used to call her my little girl
Oh she used to call me
She used to call me her little boy

Oh it's all over baby
You know I'm all alone
It's all over baby
Damn you know I'm all alone
Well the reason you hear me singing the blues baby
Yeah you know my baby's gone
She's gone she's goneback to top
Early in the Morning
It's early in the morning and I can't get right
'Cause I had a little date with my baby last night

Now it's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
And I ain't got nothin' but the blues

I went to all the places where we used to go
I went to her house but she don't live there no more

And it's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
And I ain't got nothin' but the blues
I went to her girlfriendē£— house, but she was out
I knocked on her door and her mother started to shout
"Get away from here!"

Too early in the morning
It's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
And I ain't got nothin' but the blues

Went to Jenny Lou's to get something to eat
The waitress looked at me, she said, "B., you sure look beat"
It's early in the morning, baby
Early in the morning
It's early in the morning
And I ain't got nothin' but the blues

Had a lot of money when I first started out
I couldn't find my baby, now my money's run out

Now it's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
It's early in the morning
And I ain't got nothin' but the blues

It's early in the morning
I ain't got nothin' but the bluesback to top
I Want to Get Married
I want to get married
But no woman will hear my plea
I want to get married
But no woman will hear my plea
Yes, it seems somehow
I can't get one to walk downthe aisle with me

Well, I've only been in love
But three times in my life
Yes, the first, I couldn't satisfy her
But I've only been in love three times in my life
Yes, the second one was a juice-head
And the third was another man's wife

Yeah, they say "join the navy
If you really wanna see the world"
Well, but I say "join B.B. King
Baby if you really want to be loved"

Aw, my time is gone
Babe and I really must say goodbye
Aw, my time is gone
Babe and I really must say goodbye
So you women better watch out
I must have that wife before I dieback to top
You Know I Go for You
Oh baby
Babe, you know I go for you
Oh baby
Babe, you know I go for you
Aw, not because you dress so fine
Babe, but the little things you do

Oh, you're my all-day steady
Babe, you're my midnight dream
Oh, you're my all-day steady
Babe, you're my midnight dream
Oh, and without you, baby
Life ain't no good to meback to top
Past Day
Well, this past day, darlin'
I don't have to cry no more
Well, this past day, darlin'
I don't have to cry no more
Well, I found my baby
Don't have to walk from door to door

Well, I look around me
Lord, my baby can't be found
Well, I look around me
Lord, my baby can't be found
Well, I don't have to walk around no more
Don't have to go down to the bowlin' ground

Oh, I'm sayin' goodbye
Well, I don't say goodbye no more
Oh, I'm sayin' goodbye
Well, I don't say goodbye no more
Well, I found my baby
Don't have to walk from door to doorback to top
When My Heart Beats Like a Hammer
When my heart starts to beat like a hammer
And my eyes get full of tears
Oh when my heart starts to beat like a hammer
And my eyes get full of tears
You know you've only been gone 24 hours baby
And baby it seems like a million years

Now if I ever mistreated you baby
You know I didn't mean no harm
Oh if I ever mistreated you baby
God knows I didn't mean no harm
You know I'm just a little country boy baby
And I was raised right down on the cotton farm

Oh you give me so much trouble baby
Baby I don't know what to do
Oh you give me so much trouble baby
Baby I don't know I don't know what to do
I ain't got nothing I ain't got nothing now baby
Baby it's all over and it's all on account of youback to top
Troubles, Troubles, Troubles
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

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
