Give Me My Blues

soundclip


by Albert Collins
recording of 1980

from Frostbite (Alligator ALCD-4719), copyright notice

I play my music, the only way that I can
Play my music only, only way I can
Some people really dig it, some just don't understand

I play my music only, only way I can
I play my music, play it the only way I can
Some people really dig it, some just don't understand

I don't play the drums
I can't disco dance
But I can play the blues
Put you in a trance

I can play my music, only way I can
Some people really dig it
Some just don't understand

Give my blues song, I'll play it all night long
Give me a blues song, I'll play it all night long
It may not sound right to you but I know that, that ain't wrong

I don't do no country
I don't do no jazz
I don't do no punk rock
That kinda razz-ma-tazz

I play my blues song
The only way I can
Some people really dig it
Some just don't understand

Ooh-ho, yeah

When you told me was all over, babe
You thought all I ever was, was through

Sorry, but I forgot to tell you

Uh-huh

You thought I'd be hurt when you left me, babe
But I found another thing, (ooooowoo!)
Yeah, you thought I'd be hurt when you left me, babe
But I found another thing

But sometime what you lose,
Is nothin' compared to what you win

(Ooow)

A good man may fall, babe (oh yeah)

from Collins Mix (Virgin 39097 or Pointblank V2-39097), copyright notice

Oh honey hush, yes you talk too much
Oh honey hush, yes you talk too much
Listenin' to your conversation is just about to separate us

You start talkin' in the morning, you're talkin' all day long
I'm tryin' to figure out what I did wrong
Oh honey hush, yes you talk too much
Listenin' to your conversation is just about to separate us

I stay out all day long, you know I hate to come home
Everything I do, seems to be wrong
Oh honey hush, yes you talk too much
Listenin' to your conversation is just about to separate us

I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't rest in peace
I'll be better off, you know, walkin' the streets
Oh honey hush, yes you talk too much
Listenin' to your conversation is just about to separate us

I come for lunch or dinner, it happens all the time
That little gal just drives me out of my mind
Oh honey hush, yes you talk too much
Listenin' to your conversation is just about to separate us

I Got A Problem

by Albert Collins

I've got a problem, I say I got a problem
I got a problem people, I've got a problem
I got a problem 'bout my woman
I got a problem 'bout my wife

An' all you, when you see me stand here, two's in my life1
I know you might be wonderin', did I wreck my life?
Well, I got a problem 'bout my woman, ha!
I got a problem 'bout my wife

Now my wife is number one, my woman is number two
My woman would do things for me, that my wife wouldn't do
'Cause I dig my wife, but you understand
Sometime it takes two ya'all, to satisfy one man

My problem started out
When I started messin' 'round with number three
She called up my wife, an' told on my woman an' me
Now my wife packed up her clothes
Went home to her mother
My woman went off, an' found another lover

I've got a problem, uh, huh!
I got a problem with my wife
Got a problem with my woman, yeah
Got a problem with my wife (talk, talk, talk)

Note 1: two's in my life, the transcriber, Anita Cantor, wrote: "Well I give up on line 5!. I mean, I could go on the next month changing it... 'tears in my eye' sounds like what it should be. But he starts the word with "L" but he uses the word 'life' in the next line. So it looks wrong but I think it's right. Maybe the whole line is wrong, but if someone wants to correct it, they can be my guest!". The invitation still stands mail me if you have any idea's on this part of the lyrics!.

Come home this mornin' my woman she treated me like dirt

Got so mad (I got a bad little baby)
I got mad you can see
That woman tryin' to beat the hell out-a me

Got so mad (I got a bad little baby)
I got mad you can see that woman tryin' to beat the hell out of me

That woman she said, "You tryin' to be slick"
She said, "I will take this knife and I will cut off your prick!"

Got so mad (I got a bad little baby)
I got mad you can see that woman tryin' to beat the hell out of me
Whoa yeah

by Bill Rice
recording of 1969, Fullmore Auditorium, San Francisco, California

from Rockin' with the Iceman (Culture Press 1001), copyright notice

Mustang Sally, guess you better slow your mustang down
Mustang Sally, now baby, guess you better slow your mustang down
Ridin' all over town, woo, guess I'm gonna have to put your flat feet on the ground

Mustang Sally, you better slow that mustang down
Mustang Sally, now baby, ya better slow you Mustang down
Runnin' all over town, woo, guess I'm gonna have to put your flat feet on the ground

All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
Ooh, all ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
(One of these days)
Gonna have to wipe your weepin' eyes

All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
All ya wanna do is ride around, Sally
(One of these days)
Gonna be wipin' your weepin' eyes

My Mind Is Trying To Leave Me

soundclip


by Albert Collins
recording of 1983

from Don't Lose Your Cool (Alligator ALCD-4730), copyright notice

I went to breakfast this mo'nin, down to the corner bar
I thought I heard my baby call my name, an' it came from so far
I started runnin' an' answerin', like a crazy fool would do
Aha, ya' see, my woman gone away an' left me
An' now my mind is tryin' to leave me too

Now my friend stepped out the bar
An' stopped me an' offered me a drink
I went in an' had a double
An' I began to think about my baby
Aha, like a crazy fool would do
You see, my woman gone away an' left me
An' now my mind is tryin' to leave me too

Oh!

Ha-ah, I went into the barber shop an' ordered ham an' eggs
An' each barber gave me fifty cent
They thought I was tryin' to beg
An' I started cryin' like a baby (like a baby, ha)
Like any fool would do
You see my woman gone away an' left me
An' now my mind is tryin' to leave me too

soundclip


by Gwendolyn Collins / H. Williams
recording of 1991

from Iceman (Capitol or Virgin 86197), copyright notice

Put your shoe on the other foot, you can walk, just like me
Put your shoe on another foot, you can walk, just like me
Walkin' an' a talkin', see an' feel, a just like me

Put your hand in another glove, you can feel just like me
Put your hand in another glove, you can feel a just like me
Walkin' an' a talkin', see an' feel a just like me

Put your shoes on baby!

Put your eye on another view, you can see just like me
Hey, put your eye on another view, you can see just like me
Walkin' an' a talkin', see an' feel a just like me

Put your tongue on another word, you can talk just like me
Put your tongue on another word, you can talk just like me
Walkin' an' a talkin', see an' feel a just like me

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, ho)

Always talkin' all the time

(Whoa, whoa, whoa, ho)

Walk on baby

Walkin' an' a talkin', see an' feel a just like me

(Whoa, whoa, whoa ho)
