Thrill is Gone

Thrill is Gone

Blues Boy, oh blues boy
say it ain't so 
Lucille's lover done gone
now I'm goin' down slow

B.B. bye baby 
I jus' heard da news
that B.B. is gone
the King of the blues

"thrill is gone away from me.
Although I'll still live on,
But so lonely I'll be."*
knowin' no more B.B.

Lucille, Lucille, 
I want you to know
I too, loved that blues man, 
B.B., your beau

    Hi, GG! As I see in this great tribute what a loyal fan (of music) you are, I offer my condolences to you and all the others who still remember his blues. "And one by one we drop away". Take care, my friend!
