Who Are You

soundclip


by Dave Crawford / Howard Johnson
recording of 1973

from To Know You Is to Love You (MCA MCAD-10414), copyright notice

We've met before
In the same room of my imagination
And it gets so hard to deal with
Out strike temptation, yes it does
Yesterday in my mind
You were here but now we've parted
You need to come on back
And finish what we started, oh baby
I need to know

Who are you
And where did you come from
(Where did you come from, baby)
Who are you gonna give yourself to
And what are your plans
Tell me, baby
(I've really got to know now)
Who are you
And where are you going
Will you give yourself to me
Or some other man
I got to know, baby

You started what I thought
You intended to finish
You were right here yesterday
But today you vanished
When I woke up something told me
That I had been used
But I liked it
And when I couldn't find you
Lord, it gave me the blues
Now I really need to know

Who are you
And where did you come from
(And where did you come from, baby)
Who are you gonna give yourself to
Baby, what are your plans
Tell me, girl
Who are you
And where are we going
Will you give yourself to me
Or some other man, baby

Who are you, baby, who are you
Who are you, baby, who are you
I'd really like to know about you, baby
Who are you, baby
Where are we going
Where did you come from, baby...

I got a whole lot of lovin'
Baby just waiting for you
I got a whole lot of lovin'
Baby just waiting for you
And the way I could love you woman
Honey I know you could love me too

Oh you're so good lookin' baby
And you build up from the ground
Well you're so good lookin' baby
And you build up from the ground
Every time I see you baby
My love starts tumbling down

Yeah, you're just my type baby
Just my height and size
Said you're just my type baby
You're just my height and size
And the reason I love you
Because you've got those little dreamy eyes

Why Do Things Happen


by B.B. King / Jules Taub
recording of 1992

from Singin' the Blues/The Blues (Flair 86296), copyright notice

I wonder why, why do everything have to happen to me
I wonder why, why do everything have to happen to me
Well, I'm blue and I'm lonesome, my heart is filled with misery

Oh, so many strange things, they happen to me all day long
Oh, so many strange things, they happen to me all day long
yes, it seems like everything I do, everything I do is wrong

I had a good reputation, the greatest man in town
But I'm having so much troubles, till they 'bout to drag me down

I wonder why, why do everything have to happen to me
I wonder why, why do everything have to happen to me
Well, I'm blue and I'm lonesome, my heart is filled with misery

I got up on my feet, I had lots of friends
But bad luck had hit me, now I'm down again

Why I Sing The Blues

by B.B. King / Dave Clark
recording of 1956

from Do The Boogie! B.B. King's Early 50's Classics (Virgin 39654),
copyright notice

You all have been wonderin', wonderin' why I sing the blues
You all have been wonderin', wonderin' why I sing the blues
Yeah you just listen, and say you're me instead of you

Ah you won't to or you do get married1, to someone for the rest of your life
Ah you won't to or you do get married1, to someone for the rest of your life
Yes and there is always someone else, whenever you out of sight

You get the affection of a servant, the kindness of a slave
You get the affection of a servant, the kindness of a slave
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
I try to say something people, something just to pacify
I might not have lived right all of my life, but people please believe me I've tried

__________
Note 1: I'm not certain of the line "Ah you won't to or you do get married"

You're Still My Woman

soundclip


by Dave Clark / B.B. King
recording of 1970

from Indianola Mississippi Seeds (MCA MCAD-31343), copyright notice

When I come home in the morning
And I knock on the door
I don't get that glad-to-see-you welcome
The glad-to-see-you welcome any more
Oh but to me
It's just like it used to be, baby
Because you are still my woman

You know a change have come
And I guess I'll blame it on fate
The thing that once was love
It now seems to turn to hate
Oh I guess it's too late
For me now, baby
But you are still my woman

You know I tried to be
The man you wanted me to be
But whatever I do, baby
It seems to add to your misery
Oh you can do
What you want to, baby
But you are still my woman

You know I'm still hoping and praying
That someday I'll find
Someone to love me
So I can have love and peace of mind
Oh I still love you
Like I did before, baby
Because you are still my woman

Your friends are all telling you
That I'm a no good so-and-so
They say that love and affection
Have now turned to a heart
A heart that's old and cold
It's the same old story
Same old story that's so often told

You are still my woman

And natural finger popping
Baby, you sure do swing
And when it comes to rocking
And natural finger popping
Daddy, you're the king
Baby, you've got me beat
Up and down
Inside and out and across
But in the middle of the night
When the moon is shining bright
Lord, you're the boss

Talking about dancing
And down home romancing
Daddy, you make me scream
Talking about dancing
And down home romancing
Baby, you're the queen
Man, when push comes to shove
When it comes down to love
You're a horse
But in the middle of the night
When the moon is shining bright
You're the boss

You're the best of everything
You're a peach
You're so sweet
You're a diamond
You're the gem
You're the best of everything
Daddy, you're my man
Baby, you're my girl

When it comes to knowing
Which way the wind is blowing
Baby, you're so wise
And when it comes to knowing
Which way the wind is blowing
Daddy, Lord, you take the prize
Baby, you're the best

Some chili sauce
Yeah, but in the middle of the night
When the moon is shining bright

Take it easy now
Getting better looking everyday
Oh yeah, I know that, I know that

Yes, that's me
Belongs to Brown
Hey, hey
Remember what I told you all them years I'd catch you?

You slowed down a little bit. Look out, I'm almost closed off
I'm closing in, I'm closing in
Come here, baby
Give me a little time

Not yet, but just take it easy on me now
Is the thrill gone?
Not yet, baby, not yet!
Oh Lord, baby
I think that you never treated me mean
That's why I keep coming back for more
Go back to the source, baby
I hear you, I hear you
Oh baby, they didn't name you B.B. for nothing
You pay the cost?
Yes, I do
And I always come back to the boss
Come on to me. Come on to me

You've Always Got The Blues

soundclip


by Mickey Newbury
recording of 1982

from Love Me Tender (MCA MCAD-886), copyright notice

I wake up and think of her
No matter what I do
She's always on my mind
A time a day or two
Seems to me the things you've loved the most
You always lose
But once you've got them
You've always got the blues

In time, well you may find someone else
That can comfort you
But not someone to light the fire
No, not the way she used to do

You lose the things that made it
What it was when it was new
And once you've got them
You've always got the blues

That new love only can replace
Just so much of you
That leaves a lot that gets lost between
Number one and number two
In time, well you may find someone else
That can comfort you
But not someone to light the fire
No, not the way she used to do

You lose the things that made it
What it was when it was new
And once you've got them
You've always got the blues

Ain't no need to worry about it
Won't do you one bit of good

Treat your baby like you should

And it's so plain to see

You're the only one can make it fly

You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit

Don't be listening to no jealous friends
When they start slinging mud
And don't let nobody come between
'Cause I've got you in my blood
I wanna start dealing, dealing
Dealing in reality, reality
I'm just trying to survive
And keep my head above the waterline
So I won't get buried alive

You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit

Not so very long ago
There was nothing you could say
That ever would
Have convinced me, darling
I couldn't turn and walk away
You got me stung out, baby
Stung out on the end of your line
Yeah, and the hook's in deep
Got the kind of love
Kind of love I wanna keep
Everybody's welcome to try
Try and get my airplane running
You're the only one can make it fly

You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit to me
You've become a habit

No matter how hard I try
I just can't break free
You've become a habit to me
'Cause you're my honey and I'm your bee
A habit to me

You've become a habit to me
Habit to me, habit to me

You fed me on love and greens
You laid my head upon a feather bed
And I sure had some mighty sweet dreams

Don't you know we got something going on
You and me, me and you
Love can be a song if you like the tune
So sing to me, I'll sing to you
It goes ooh -
Just let the feelings flow
It goes ooh -
That's the way our love song goes

Mornings come easy in the country
Never had this feeling before
Ever since you found me
Love has been around me
And I'll never be lonely no more

Don't you know we got something going on
You and me, me and you
Love can be a song if you like the tune
So sing to me, I'll sing to you
It goes ooh -
Just let the feelings flow
It goes ooh -

You Never Know

from The Soul of B. B. King (United 7714), copyright notice

Yeah, you never know how you hurt me, baby, how bad I feel inside
Oh, you never know how you hurt me, woman, how bad I feel inside
I believed you when you said you loved me, oh, but I know you lied

Oh, when I lay down in darkness, I keep hearin' your sweet voice
When I lay down in darkness, baby, I keep hearin' your sweet voice
And I remember your church, woman, oh, and how I rejoice

I know the people are talkin', baby, but I don't care what they say
I realize that people talkin', baby, but I don't care what they say
I know I still love you, woman, and I want you home to stay

Yeah, if you ever change your mind, woman, won't you please come on home
Oh, if you ever change your mind, baby, won't you please come on home
Yes, I'm not good without you, baby and you're not good to me gone

You Put It On Me

soundclip


by Maya Angelou / Quincy Jones
recording of 1968

from King Of The Blues 4 CD Box Set (MCA MCAD4-10677), copyright notice

They say there ain't no woman that a man can trust
That they all use juju, and goofy dust
But I don't argue baby
And I ain't gonna make no fuss
'Cause I'm glad, glad, glad, I'm so glad baby
That you put it on me

Oh, I had pretty women in every town
And I played so hard when the sun went down
Oh, but you stopped my partying
You stopped my partying when you came around baby
Hmm and I'm so glad
I'm so glad, I'm so glad, I'm so glad baby
That you put it on me

If I hollered for help
The doctor would come
If I asked for medicine
You know he'd give me some
But that wouldn't cure me baby
Oh, and you know that wouldn't be no fun
So you just keep on, keep on mama
Oh, you just keep on puttin' it on me

Yes, just keep it up baby
Keep on puttin' it on me
Keep it up, keep on, keep on, keep on, keep on baby...

You shouldn't have left me, baby
Baby, you shouldn't have gone away
Oh, you shouldn't have left me, baby

Cryin' every night and every day

Someone that you love more, baby
Made you break my heart in two
Someone that you love more, baby
Made you break my heart in two
I want you to remember, baby
The same thing could happen to you

When the pains in your heart, woman
Make you feel like you could die

Make you feel like you could die
Oh, you'll know then that you shouldn't have left me, woman

Yes, she's 36 in the bust, 28 in the waist,

Well, she's not too tall, complexion is fair,
man she knocked me out the way she wears her hair
You upsets me baby, Yes, you upsets me baby
Like being hit by a fallen tree,
woman, woman what you do to me

Well I, tried to describe her, it's hard to start
I better stop now because I got a weak heart
You upsets me, well, you upsets me baby
Well like being hit by a fallen tree,

You Won't Listen


by
recording of 19

from The Soul of B. B. King (United 7714), copyright notice

Yeah, you won't listen to nothing I tell you, woman, you keep on doin' as you please
Yeah, you won't listen to a thing I tell you, baby, you keep on doin' as you please
But I've taken it as long as I can, baby, when is this foolishness gonna cease

I worried myself crazy, baby, cried both night and day
I worried myself crazy, woman, I cried both night and day
You didn't believe me, baby, when I told you I'm gonna leave one day

Yeah, you told me that you love me, woman, but action speaks louder than words
Well, you said that you love me, woman, but action speaks louder than words
I won't be foolin' around no more, that's a line everybody has heard

If you don't change for the better, baby, you better do it real soon
If you don't change for the better, woman and you better do it real soon
Or you will wake up one of these mornings, baby, and find yourself in a empty room
