„I’ll play the blues for you“

If you’re down an’ out, an’ you feel real hurt
Come on over, to the place where I work
An’ all your loneliness, I’ll try to soothe
I’ll play the blues for you.

Don’t be afraid, come on in
You might run across, yeah, some of your old friends
All your loneliness, I’ve got to soothe
I’ll play the blues for you.

Come on in, sit right here, let’s rap awhile
Ya see I’m kinda lonely too, ya know?
An’ loneliness is a very bad thing
If ya let it get the best of ya
An’ loneliness can get ya down, ya know?

Yeah, yeah, are you comfortable now?
Yeah, yeah, that’s outta sight
Yeah, as I was sayin’ before
Loneliness can get you down, an’ I have heard of, ah
Loneliness blowin’ some good people’s mind, ya know?

But ya can’t do that
This is a big world, this is a big world
An’ there’s too many nice things happenin’ in this world
You’re a very pretty girl
Where you live?

No, no, no, disregard that, that’s okay, that’s okay
Most important thing, I wanna know you
I say, I wanna know you
That’s groovy, ain’t it?
I’ll play the blues for you.

I ain’t got no big name
Oh Lord, an’ I ain’t no big star
I’ll play the blues for you on my guitar.

All your loneliness, I’ll try to soothe
I’ll play the blues for you.

Excuse me

Jedan od najlepših bluzeva ikada snimljenih, imao je svoju premijeru na ploči objavljenoj 1972. godine.

„I’ll play the blues for you“ napisao je Jerry Beach 1969 godine. Geater Davis je snimio ovu pesmu iste godine, ali taj tonski zapis nije objavljen (smatra se tzv. demo snimkom). Tri godine kasnije je po prvi put zvanično objavljena na ploči. Albert King je snimio album „I’ll play the blues for you“ na kome se nalazi istoimena pesma kao prva na A strani. Zbog trajanja od preko sedam minuta, dodato je u nazivu“Part 1-2″ jer je iste godine objavljena i singl verzija. Možda nije popularna i poznata kao neki tzv. bluz standardi, ali je u izvođenju Albert King-a – predivna. Snimili su je i mnogi drugi muzičari zaljubljenici u bluz, među kojima su Gary Moore, Joe Bonamassa, Melvin Taylor, Vargas Blues Band, Bryan Lee, Corey Stevens, Daniel Castro…
