Gary Moore - Still Got The Blues - Live 1990




Gary Moore is one of the best rock and blues guitarists ever to come out of Ireland. Born in Belfast he moved to Dublin in the late 60s joined a band called Skid Row and met Phil Lynott, who shortly after left to form Thin Lizzy. Moore stayed with Skid Row for three albums before joining Lynott briefly in Thin Lizzy.


He then joined Colosseum II (which also featured Don Airey on keyboards) before going solo and having a huge hit with Parisenne Walkways, which featured Lynott on vocals. This lead to a further short stint in Thin Lizzy, including their classic album Black Rose.





Lyrics


Used to be so easy to give my heart away.

But I found out the hard way,

there's a price you have to pay.

I found out that love was no friend of mine.

I should have known time after time.

So long, it was so long ago,

but I've still got the blues for you.


Used to be so easy to fall in love again.

But I found out the hard way,

it's a road that leads to pain.

I found that love was more than just a game.

You're playin' to win, but you lose just the same.

So long, it was so long ago,

but I've still got the blues for you.


So many years since I've seen your face.

Here in my heart, there's an empty space

where you used to be.

So long, it was so long ago,

but I've still got the blues for you.


Though the days come and go,

there is one thing I know.

I've still got the blues for you.



Songwriters: Gary Moore / Lou Reed
