B.B. King Back In L.A.

From Hollywood and Vine

To the Sunset Strip

There’s so much going on

You can lose your grip

From early in the morning

Until late at night

They’ll do you so wrong

They’ll do you so right

Back in L.A.

Waiting for the sun to shine

Back in L.A.

Living down a life of crime

Back in L.A.

Working on another line

Back in L.A.

To pick up the dime

You must do the time

From way up in the canyons

Where the hot winds howl

To the mean city streets

Where the night hawks prowl

I can feel the rhythm play

The whole night long

Guess I’ll stay in L.A.

And listen to this song

Back in L.A.

Waiting for the sun to shine

Back in L.A.

Living down a life of crime

Back in L.A.

Working on another line

Back in L.A.

To pick up the dime

You must do the time

You must do the time

B.B. King A Woman Don’t Care

You may be rich

You may be poor

You may be high

Or you just may be low

But if you fall in love

Oh, and you should lose

A woman don’t care

She don’t care who she gives the blues

Wo, you may be young

You may be old

Maybe you’ve heard

Or maybe you’ve never been told

If you’ve got a good woman

Oh, try not to misuse

Oh, a woman don’t care

She don’t care who she gives the blues

She’ll make you hot in the winter

Make you cold in the summertime

She’ll make you feel young in the spring

And in the fall drive you out of your mind

A woman, don’t you hear me callin’ you?

Yeah woman, you don’t care

Yeah, you don’t care who you give the blues

Oh, you may be up

You may be down

You may be short, tall, skinny

Or you just might be round

Oh, don’t be too sure of your woman

Thinkin’ man, that you can’t lose

Oh, remember that a woman don’t care

She don’t care who she gives the blues

B.B. King Do You Call That A Buddy?

It was early one Monday mornin’

And I was on my way to school

It was early one Monday mornin’

When I was on my way to school

That was the mornin’

When I broke my mother’s rule

I’ve been in love with you, baby

Before I learned to call your name

I’ve been in love with you, baby

Before I learned to call your name

Now you’re in love with someone else

I know that’s gonna drive me insane

Oh, baby, you sure look good to me

Oh, baby, you sure look good to me

Please tell me, pretty mama

Who can your great new lover be?

B.B. King Blue Decorations

Blue decorations on my Christmas tree

The saddest time of the year

‘Cause you’re not here with me

But I hung you a stocking, just in case you’re free

Blue decorations on my Christmas tree

You know the spirit of Christmas

Is so hard to share alone

When you once have it all

But now all you had is gone

All the children are singing

The saddest melodies

Blue decorations on my Christmas tree

Ho, ho, ho, I don’t feel Christmas

They call it a holiday

But they all are the same to me

Like these blue decorations on my Christmas tree

The forecast is cloudy

Buffing, sad and cold

And the weatherman says

We gonna get some snow

I guess I’ll open my presents

To me, from me

Make these blue decorations on my Christmas tree

Ho, ho, ho, oh, I don’t feel Christmas

B.B. King Blind Love

People, I was standing at my window

Tears running all down my cheeks

Yes, standing at my window

Tears running all down my cheeks

Well, I could see the woman I’m loving

Stopping everyone in the world she meets

Well, standing on the corner

Between 35th and Main

Well, standing on the corner, people

Between 35th and Main

Yeah, that’s where a blind man’s seen my woman

People, a dumb man called her name

He said, “Oh, I’m blind

You brought eyesight and made me see”

“Oh, I’m blind

You brought eyesight and made me see”

Yes, and the dumb man asked a question

“Woman, who may your good man be?”

Yes, I’m standing by trembling, people

People, my heart’s laying in my hand

With my heart’s laying in my hand

Well, I could hear my baby say

“Lord, I ain’t got no man”

To walk in through the door

And I said hi hi baby I won’t worry no more

Whoa I said hi hi hi baby, I won’t ever worry any more

You know I got home this mornin

And I ain’t goin outa that door.

B.B. King A World Full Of Strangers

You and me don’t see eye to eye

On every little thing

We’ve missed a lot of sunshine

And caught a lot of rain

If you want to leave I can’t make you stay

But there is something I have to say

No matter how high you get

Or how low you go

There’s one thing darling

You ought to know

There’s a world full of strangers out there

A world full of strangers

Beware

There’s a world full of strangers out there

And if it gets too strange

Just come on home

Restless hearts, looking for a love

Are waiting in the street

They’re all prepared to give you

The bitter with the sweet

If you wake someday and you reach for me

Well you know, this is where I’ll be

No matter how high you get

Or how low you go

There’s one thing darling

You ought to know

There’s a world full of strangers out there

A world full of strangers

Beware

There’s a world full of strangers out there

And if it gets too strange

Just come on home

B.B. King 3 O’Clock Blues

Well now it’s three o’clock in the morning

And I can’t even close my eyes

Three o’clock in the morning baby

And I can’t even close my eyes

Can’t find my baby

And I can’t be satisfied

And my baby she can’t be found
