Doctor John with Etta James performing together "I'd Rather Go Blind"


"I'd Rather Go Blind" performed by Etta James and Dr. John sadly missed last thursday.

The song was first recorded by Etta James in 1967, released in 1968, and has subsequently become regarded as a blues and soul classic.


Lyrics



Something told me it was over When I saw you and her talking Something deep down in my soul said, cry girl When I saw you and that girl, walking arround

I would rather, I would rather go blind boy Than to see you, walk away from me child, and all So you see, I love you so much That I don't want to watch you leave me baby Most of all, I just don't, I just don't want to be free no uh uh

I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking Of your kisses and your warm embrace, yeah When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now baby (yeah, yeah) Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah And baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I would rather be blind boy Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah Baby, baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I'd rather be blind now (baby, baby, bay)
