Buddy Guy - Every Time I Sing The Blues Lyrics




Somebody asked me, why I live the blues
I said the blues is all around me; I just find something I can use
And I feel it running through me, but I give it my heart and soul
I practice while I'm singing; let the feeling take control

I'm just tryin' to tell the truth
Every time I sing the blues

Might think about a woman and how she done me wrong
I might think about some hard times when I was barely hanging on
I might think about a brother who still can't make things be
Some fallin' sisters sellin' it on the street

I'm just tryin' to tell the truth
Every time I sing the blues

I find my inspiration in tears and desperation
Sad, sad stories we all know so well
Along with one more story to tell

Here I am another night; another town along the way
Room full of people say they wanna hear me play
Yes there was some hard times, my luck cannot survive
It takes a whole lot of livin; to make us all come alive

I'm just tryin' to tell the truth
Every time I sing the blues

I'm just tryin' to tell the truth
Every time I sing the blues

    Buddy was in San Fransisco to record a live album, aman by the name of Jimi Hendrix approached and asked Buddy if he could record him. Buddy said sure, when Jimi walked away, Buddy turns to his band and says, "who in the hell is Jimi Hendrix" lololol

    This is sensational. Clapton and Buddy Guy really in groove together. Love Clapton's voice, haven't heard it in years.

    @paul6914

    Standard tuning, capo at the 5th fret. Rhythm guitar starts with a standard D chord with a hammer on the A note ( G string). The rest will fall into place pretty quickly.

  23. slowhand633

    I believe thats mr. clapton... sick guitar both ways also !!!

  24. paul6914
