Gary Moore - I'll Play The Blues For You Lyrics

When you're down and out
And you feel real hurt
Come on over to the place where I work
Loneliness I try to soothe
I'll play the blues for you

Don't be afraid, come on in
You might run across
Some of your old friends
Loneliness I try to soothe
I'll play the blues for you

I ain't no big name
And I ain't no big star
But I'll play the blues for you on my guitar
Loneliness I try to soothe
I'll play the blues for you

Yes, I will
Excuse me

    all 59 of you who disliked this I am not going to tell you where you should go. You should know that already. This was a masterpiece from Gary, so soulful that no one can ever replicate that. I wish he was still here with us and share his knowledge and experience in life. I am thankful for this man, he has changed my world at least. Rest In Peace Gary, we all miss you!

  41. precision Brown

    Why thumbs down? You shoulda caught him when he was living the blues

  42. NewFlamenco

    I heard this version in an LP bar in Korea while half-cut, been looking for it ever since. I should have known it was Gary...

  43. Tridib Gogoi

    A true legend , unrecognized by his own fraternity. But we salute you , you have , Gary entertained us for a decade and still your music lives in our heart and soul.

  44. Tom Prezioso

    This does not sound anything like Gary Moore voice or guitar and the changes are wrong

    Rob van Unnik - Amsterdam

    Buy the CD "Old New Ballads Blues" 2006 and find out for yourself.

    Charlie Homrighouse

    Seen joe twice, great in his own right. Not quite in Gary Moore's league. Thanks.

  62. Çrzy 8ball Çat Mack

    The Unity of the Two,... Exsistin' as one....A soulful love that enlightens our souls of their unity... such as rare gift to feel within you.

  63. Scott Cohen

    good version other than he changed the turnaround from the original which goes to three instead of the five and is also much funkier

  64. JustAintThatWay

    He was the best - that's all there is to it.

  65. Nick Ghurchumelia


  66. Charlie C.

    For those diehards like me...check out Joe Bonamassa's tribute to Gary for this song....really good...

    Alice Noot

    i will check that out.. thanks xx

    Keith HB

    Yup - Bonamassa is one of the greats..

    Prashant Bhookya

    Counter suggestion mate, try out Daniel Castro's rendition

  67. Captain garittek

    backing track ?

  68. Eric Klein

    Gary M...Mr. King of the blues.

  69. Paul G

    Truly one of the greats Artists he will be missed R.I.P.

  70. valis craver

    This is the blues, it feels so good. Nothing can take the place of the blues. Women come and go but the blues is always with us. They are the reason the blues is so good, it feels just right and nothing can take it's place.

    James Bridge

    valis craver the blues are with us BECAUSE women come and go...

  71. Ozeliak

    Minha alma viaja nessas músicas do Gary Moore; é muita sensibilidade...

  72. 가을나그네

    good !!

  73. Myanna Magic

    Fantastic !🎸👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  74. bobbyvw1

    Heerlijke plaat kerel. Bedankt voor het delen!

  75. sosso sof



    I always marveled at how some guitarists transition to the blues. some stay and some return. Jon mayer is another that offered great passion in his playing. though I felt he only visits before seeking other genre modified efforts

  77. Schuster Hans-Jörg

    Wow. Nach. B.B. King der Beste.

  78. Baby

    I really like this version..He moves me to tears and Rocks MY SOUL..PLAY the Blues 4 ME..I wish he was here..This is so Pretty..HIS Passion was 20 Men...

  79. Worldwide Ghosts

    Very nice!

  80. Robert Hawn

    I like this version by Daniel Castro on his No Surrender album

  81. Diego A. Umaña

    Awesome song... RIP MASTER. You are definitely missed...

  82. p123

    I think Jimi Prime Time Smith's version is better. It is perhaps less proficient technically, but it has more soul.

  83. james dean 357

    cool....very in a mood of ,,purple

  84. TheDemockery1

    This ranks up there with Gary's finest work... a solid 10. The delay effect, the tone, cadence... every aspect and nuance of this song is spot on. Gary nailed the perfect feel for this cover; excellent guitar work, accompaniment and Gary's voice sounds especially smooth and full in this studio and setup.

  85. garagerocker48

    i love this song very much

  86. Larry Depontes

    i'll play the blues for you...

  87. dictator54

    Pure bluesman and that's a fact this song proves he's one of the MASTERS

  88. Buck Riddle

    God Gary Moore is a bad motherfucker!! One of the best!!! Rip LEGEND.

  89. LAR-OSA

    Great cover I appreciate a lot. This one not bas check it out

  90. Debbie Watford
