ZZ Top - Blue Jean Blues Lyrics

I done ran into my baby
and fin'lly found my old blue jean.
I done ran into my baby
and fin'lly found my old blue jean.
Well, I could tell that they was mine
from the oil and the gasoline.

If I ever get back my blue jean,
Lord, how happy could one man be.
If I ever get back my blue jean,
Lord, how happy could one man be.
'Cause if I get back those blue jean
you know, my baby be bringin' 'em home to me.

    If I had to chose just a few tunes to represent electric blues guitar to somebody unfamiliar with it, this absolutely would be one of the tunes I'd point them to.

  6. Carlos Nells

    I can still remember the day I heard this..driving my little 64 VW bug...my FM radio was a PX purchase in Vietnam brought home and installed. I remember the road, the light of early morning and where I was going...weird.

    PERSONALLY this is the best Blues tune ever and I was at the legendary Warehouse in New Orleans the night this cover for the album was taken and the 1st 3 songs off it live! They were these glistening sequened Texas coats, Billy and Dusty this night challenged and fed off each other! It was Electric and stood with me long after the concert was over! As the announcer says, Ladies and Gentleman The Fantastic Z.Z. TOP! BILLY HAS A GUITAR MADE FROM A BEAM IN MUDDY WATERS HOME! TRUE! BADASS BLUES TUNE AT ITS BEST! WHAT ARE THE 800 PLUS DOWN TURNED THUMBS LISTENING TO JUSTIN BIEBER OR SOME CRAP! LOL PEACE AND LOVE

  65. David Draghici

    From a fake zombies band set on tour by some bunch of executives it really became rock’n roll legends,and that’s cool.2 beards and a mustache.

  66. Dr. Ansalto

    SRV couldn't touch this in a million years.

  67. charliejamz

    Is this song a metaphor or something? I don’t fully understand why one would write lyrics about Blue Jeans. I noticed he says JEAN in the lyrics.. idk. Long live ZZ Top.

  68. Kevin Liles
