BB King - The Thrill is Gone (RocknRolla Soundsystem Edit)

by RocknRolla Soundsystem

about

B.B. King recorded his version of "The Thrill Is Gone" in June 1969 for his album Completely Well. King's version is a slow twelve-bar blues notated in the key of B minor in 4/4 time. The song's polished production and use of strings marked a departure from both the original song and King's previous material.

This retreat is done with respect to the original by RocknRolla Soundsystem.

lyrics

Thrill is gone
The thrill is gone away
The thrill is gone, baby
The thrill is gone away

You know you done me wrong, baby
And you'll be sorry someday

The thrill is gone
It's gone away from me
The thrill is gone, baby
The thrill is gone away from me

Although, I'll still live on
But so lonely I'll be

The thrill is gone
It's gone away for good
The thrill is gone, baby
It's gone away for good

Someday I know I'll be open armed, baby
Just like I know a good man should

You know I'm free, free now, baby
I'm free from your spell
Oh, I'm free, free, free now
I'm free from your spell

And now that it's all over
All I can do is wish you well
