I love to play my Rock'n'Roll, but I've played the blues before
I've had my share of broken hearts
but I don't play the blues no more
If you meet the girl of your wildest dreams
she's gonna turn out to be a curse
Love will hit you bad boy, but the blues will hit you worse

If you wanna know how to play the blues...
get yourself a woman!

Muddy Waters sang out the truth back in 1941
Woman gonna get to you like Jimmy Hendrix with a gun
Mr FredMcDowell lost his pride when he begged his girl to stay
Mr Robert Johnson lost his life with too much love one day

If you wanna know how to play the blues...
get yourself a woman!

I love to play my Rock'n'Roll, but I've played the blues before
I've had my share of broken hearts
but I don't play the blues no more
If you meet the girl of your wildest dreams
she's gonna turn out to be a curse
Love will hit you bad boy, but the blues will hit you worse

If you wanna know how to play the blues...
get yourself a woman!
Pick it sweet...slide it slow, Whoo!
