Buddy Guy,Jeff Beck,Mick Jagger and Gary Clark Jr.,"Five Long Years" -Live











Back in 2012, a group of blues and rock legends assembled at the White House for a special concert honoring the American Songbook.
One of the highlights of the night was a performance of "Five Long Years" featuring Jeff Beck, Mick Jagger, Buddy Guy and Gary Clark Jr. You can watch a video of this remarkable performance above.
"Five Long Years" is a post-war blues tune written by American pianist Eddie Boyd in 1952.Eric Clapton covered it on His 1994 album,"From The Cradle",but that's another story!!

"Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve to put me out.
I got a job in a steel mill, shucking steel like a slave.
Five long years, every Friday I come straight back home with all my pay.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve to put me out.
I finally learned my lesson, should a long time ago.
The next woman that I marry, she gonna work and bring me the dough.
Have you ever been mistreated? You know just what I'm talking about.
I worked five long years for one woman, she had the nerve,
She had the nerve,
She had the nerve,
She had the nerve to put me out."
