Get These Blues Off Me – B.B. KING


Please don’t be angry with me cause I’ve gone away
I’ve told you about your mistakes
But you didn’t hear a word I said
I’m so tired of worrying
I don’t know just what to do
I’m sorry baby
I just can’t put up with you

I’ve tried to please you
But you just wasn’t satisfied with me
Well I tried to please you
You just wasn’t satisfied with me
I’ve had to do it ever since I met you
Now you ought to be free
Get These Blues Off Me
