Alvin Lee - The Bluest Blues (feat. George Harrison on Slide Guitar)




Alvin Lee (born Graham Anthony Barnes 19.12.1944 – 6.03.2013) was an English singer and guitarist, best known as the lead vocalist and lead guitarist of the blues rock band Ten Years After.


Alvin says… one of my favourite tracks from my album ‘1994’. It has George Harrison on slide guitar and is one of the best solos he ever played. It’s a masterpiece, so sensitive. Hearing George made me play more sensitive too! I’m very proud of this one.


Personnel:


Alvin Lee- guitar, vocal

George Harrison- slide guitar

Tim Hinkley- hammond organ

Steve Grant- keys

Steve Gould- bass

Alan Young- drums




Lyrics


I couldn't wait to see you, waiting by the door

There's no one there to meet me, and your clothes are on the floor

Sorry if I hurt you, and I made you cry

Couldn't stand to see you, with another guy

It's the bluest blues, and it cuts me like a knife

It's the bluest blues, since you walked out of my life


Couldn't really tell you, how you hurt my pride

Something broke within me, down inside

I never knew I loved you, til you went away

Now the loneliness surrounds me, everyday

It's the bluest blues, since you walked out of the door

It's the bluest blues, 'cause I won't see you no more


I'm sorry if I failed you, if somehow I'm to blame

It's the bluest blues I'm feeling, it's a cryin' shame

I just can't live without you, face another day

It's the bluest blues I'm feeling, and it's here to stay

It's the bluest blues, and it cuts me to the bone

It's the bluest blues, when you can't find your way home
