On the Vacation Thread on the Recovery Forum, Cinders linked to a song she said was "gritty." As soon as I thought about that word for a second, I thought of this cut, from B.B.King.



The lyrics: (at least one version of them)
Quote:
Been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
I've been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
Our love is nothin' but the blues
Baby how blue can you get

My love is like a fire
Your love is like a cigarette
My love is like a fire
But baby yours is like a cigarette
I watch you step down on it baby and crush it
Tell me how, tell me how, how blue can you get

You're evil when I'm with you
and you're jealous when we're apart
Yes you're evil when I'm with you baby
You're jealous when we're apart
How blue can you get, Baby
The answer's right here in my heart

I gave you a brand new Ford
and you just said I want a Cadillac
I bought you a ten dollar dinner
You said Thanks for the snack
I let you live in my penthouse
You said it was just a shack
I gave you seven children
and now you wanna give 'em back

I've been downhearted baby
ever since the day we met
Our love is nothin' but the blues
Baby how blue can you get
