Buddy Guy - Nine Below Zero Lyrics

Ain't this a pity
People ain't this a damn cryin' shame
Oh yes, ain't this a pity
People you know this a damn cryin' shame

Wait those nine below zero
And this woman then put me down for another man
I give her all my money
All of my lovin' and everything
Yes, I give her all my money
People, I give her all of my lovin' and everything
When it goes nine below zero
And she done put me down for another man

She lied to me
She did not tell me everything
Oh yeah, oh yeah, she lied to me
The little girl didn't tell me everything
Well you know it's nine below zero
And she put me down for another man

Ain't this a pity
People this a damn cryin' shame
Oh yes, ain't this a pity
People you know this a damn cryin' shame
She waits til it got nine below zero, Tom
And this little girl then put me down for another man

I'm gonna retire down to Louisiana
Layin' out there in the fallin' rain (in the swamps too)
Yes, I'm gonna retire down to Louisiana
Oh yes, I'm layin' out there in the fallin' rain
You know it's nine below zero here in Chicago
And my love don't mean a thing

  36. VonBluesman

    I was blessed to see Buddy Guy play at the New Orleans Jazz Fest again in May 2018. He is amazing, not only is he the best blues guitar player and singer, he loves the people so much he always walks out into the crowd playing and stops to let people stand next to him, he generates so much energy and love that it lights up the whole audience and everybody has a great time. He is a legend and an angel. Thank you.


    I love Buddy Guy ! I love his personality I saw him in Boston with bb king and etta james small venue outside was great ! He has so much personality.

  37. leo calta

    He really is the legend of the blues, I agree with keefriff99, his voice is ageless, and his live music excites!!!

  62. keefriff99

    That voice is AGELESS. To be 81 years old and still able to belt out the blues with such power and clarity is truly remarkable....and of course Buddy's SCORCHING guitar playing. What a legend.

    Sweeps McCullough

    That is fucking surprising indeed man!
    Just judging off his voice and the fact that he’s still got it, I assumed he was about 67...maybe 69 or 70 TOPS!
    Never would’ve guessed 81 haha!
    Pa was right when he said “never assume anything”!

    0l blue c10

    keefriff99 I seen him a year and a half ago he was amazing absolutely timelsess

    Sapphy Megatron

    I saw him several years back - one of the *BEST* shows I've ever seen. And his graciousness is legendary.
