Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble - Pride And Joy (Live at Montreux 1982)




"Pride and Joy" is a song by Texas singer/guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan and his backup band Double Trouble. It is an original composition by Vaughan and appeared on his 1983 Epic Records debut album Texas Flood. "Pride and Joy" was also released as Vaughan's first single and has become one of his best-known songs.


"Pride and Joy" was a feature of Vaughan live repertoire before he recorded it. According to Double Trouble drummer Chris Layton, Vaughan wrote it for a new girlfriend at the time (a later fight with her inspired his "I'm Cryin'")




Lyrics



Well you've heard about love givin' sight to the blind

My baby's lovin' 'cause the sun to shine

She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy

She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy


Yeah, I love my baby, heart and soul

Love like ours won't never grow old

She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy

She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy


Yeah, I love my baby, she's long and lean

You mess with her, you'll see a man get mean

She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy

She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy


Yeah, I love my baby, like the finest wine

Stick with her until the end of time

She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy

She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy


Yeah, I love my baby, heart and soul

Love like ours won't never grow old

She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy

She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy
