CHUCK BERRY - The Blues




Charles Edward Anderson Berry (October 18, 1926 – March 18, 2017) was an American singer, songwriter and guitarist, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music. Nicknamed the "Father of Rock and Roll", Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive with songs such as "Maybellene" (1955), "Roll Over Beethoven" (1956), "Rock and Roll Music" (1957) and "Johnny B. Goode" (1958).Writing lyrics that focused on teen life and consumerism, and developing a music style that included guitar solos and showmanship, Berry was a major influence on subsequent rock music.


Yeah, this is a mean old world, to try to live in all by yourself
This is a mean old world, to try to live in all by yourself
When you can't have the one you really love
Have to use somebody else
Last night I lost the best girl I ever had
Last night I lost the best girl I ever had
That is why this evenin', that is why I feel so bad
I got the blues, baby, I gotta' pack my few rags and go
I got the blues, baby, I gotta' pack my few rags and go
I know you don't really love me darlin'
Ya out ballin' Mr. So-and-So
