B.B. KING Lyrics


Makin' Love Is Good for You  

ACTION SPEAK LODER THAN WORDS
AIN'T NOBODY LIKE MY BABY
I GOT TO LEAVE THIS WOMAN
I KNOW
I'M IN THE WRONG BUSINESS
IT'S STILL CALLED THE BLUES
MAKIN' LOVE IS GOOD FOR YOU
MONDAY WOMAN
MY GAL KEEPS ME CRYIN'
PEACE OF MIND
SHE'S MY BABY
SINCE I FELL FOR YOU
TOO GOOD TO YOU BABY
WHAT YOU BET
YOU'RE ON TOP


King of Blues: 1989  

BUSINESS WITH MY BABY TONIGHT
CAN'T GET ENOUGH
CHANGE IN YOUR LOVING
GO ON
LAY ANOTHER LOG ON THE FIRE
LETS STRAIGHTEN IT UP
STANDING ON THE EDGE
TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES
UNDERCOVER MAN
YOU'VE BECOME A HABBIT TO ME


Makin' Love Is Good For You  

MY GAL KEEPS ME CRYIN'


Indianola Mississippi Seeds  

AIN'T GONNA WORRY MY LIFE ANYMORE
GO UNDERGROUND
UNTIL I'M DEAD AND COLD
YOU'RE STILL MY WOMAN


The Four Kings of Blues Guitar  

CALDONIA
PAYING THE COST TO BE THE BOSS
THE THRILL IS GONE
WHY I SING THE BLUES


B.B. King Wails  

THE FOOL


Let the Good Times Roll: The Music of Louis Jordan  

AIN'T NOBODY HERE BUT US CHICKENS
BEWARE, BROTHER BEWARE
CHOO CHOO CH'BOOGIE
EARLY IN THE MORNING
IS YOU IS OR IS YOU AIN'T (MY BABY)
IT'S A GREAT, GREAT PLEASURE
JACK, YOU'RE DEAD
KNOCK ME A KISS
NOBODY KNOWS YOU WHEN YOU'RE DOWN AND OUT
RUSTY DUSTY BLUES (MAMA MAMA BLUES)
SATURDAY NIGHT FISH FRY
SOMEBODY DONE CHANGED THE LOCK ON MY DOOR
SURE WE HAD WONDERFUL TIME LAST NIGHT


Sweet Little Angel  

CAN'T LOOK NOW BUT I'VE GOT THE BLUES
GROWING OLD
I CAN'T LET YOU GO
YOU'VE BEEN AN ANGEL

King of the Blues  

AIN'T NOBODY HOME
ALL OVER AGAIN
ASK ME NO QUESTIONS
BETTER NOT LOOK DOWN
BLUE SHADOWS
BLUES AT MIDNIGHT
CHAINS AND THINGS
CONFESSIN' THE BLUES
DARLIN' YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU
DON'T ANSWER THE DOOR
DON'T GET AROUND MUCH MORE
DON'T GO NO FARTHER
FIVE LONG YEARS
FOOLS GET WISE
GAMBLER'S BLUES
GET MYSELF SOMEBODY
GOIN' DOWN SLOW
I DONE GET WISE
I'M GONNA DO WHAT THEY DO TO ME
INTO THE NIGHT
NEVER MAKE A MOVE TOO SOON
NEVER TRUST A WOMAN
NOBODY LOVES ME BUT MY MOTHER
PLEASE ACCEPT MY LOVE
RECESSION BLUES
ROCK ME BABY
SINCE I MET YOU BABY
SLOPPY DRUNK
SLOWLY LOSING MY MIND
SNEAKIN' AROUND
SO EXCITED
STOP LEADIN' ME
THINK IT OVER
TIRED OF YOUR JIVE
TO KNOW YOU IS TO LOVE YOU
WATCH YOURSELF
WHEN LOVE COMES TO TOWN
YOU PUT IT ON ME


B.B. King Anthology  

COME BY HERE
I LOVE YOU SO
I'M CRACKING UP OVER YOU
I'VE GOT PAPERS ON YOU
MY SILENT PRAYER
SWEET THING
TIME TO SAY GOODBYE
TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY
TREAT ME RIGHT
WE CAN'T MAKE IT


B.B. King Live at the Apollo  

AIN'T NOBODY'S BIZNESS
GUESS WHO?
PEACE TO THE WORLD

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
