SINCE I MET YOU BABY

Here I bring you this "fast" blues, because you don't like "slow" blues. This is another of Ruben's favourite songs. The guitarists are Gary Moore and B.B. King. This song is fast, so are the lyrics, but don't get scared and try to sing!!!

I used to wake up in the morning with an aching head,
I couldn't remember anything I'd said
My friends told me I was getting out of line,
if it wasn't for you baby, I'd be doing time
Since I met you baby, you've made a new man of me
Since I met you baby, I'm happy as a man could be
Yes I am
I used to think I was better than the rest
Ain't no doubt about it, I was no second best
Didn't seem to matter what was right or what was wrong
I did some crazy things before you came along
Since I met you baby, you've made a new man of me
Since I met you baby, I'm happy as a man could be
Yes, I am
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
I'm happy as a man could be
One more time!
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Since I met you baby
Well, since I met you baby,
I'm happy as a man could be
Yes, I am
Happy as a man can be
You tell 'em Gary!
Yeah!

BLUES IS NOT ALWAYS SLOW.

Cris said in a comment she likes blues but she prefers faster music: I promised some examples of not slow blues. Here you are.

First one is from a film I like a lot: The Blues Brothers (Granujas a todo ritmo in Spanish).
