Ray Charles

Ray Charles Robinson (September 23, 1930 – June 10, 2004) was an American musician known as Ray Charles (to avoid confusion with champion boxer Sugar Ray Robinson.) He was a pioneer in the genre of soul music during the 1950s by fusing rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues styles into his early recordings with Atlantic Records. He also helped racially integrate country and pop music during the 1960s with his crossover success on ABC Records, most notably with his Modern Sounds albums. While with ABC, Charles became one of the first African-American musicians to be given artistic control by a mainstream record company.Frank Sinatra called Charles “the only true genius in show business.” more »

I know you told me
Such a long time ago
That you didn't want me
You didn't love me no more

I want to know
Oh, what makes me be
Do you believe me child, a fool for you?
Oh-oh, no, I'm a fool for you

I know you told me
You didn't want me 'round
Yeah, and I know
You got a man way 'cross town

So I know it's something
Oh, what makes me be?
Do you believe me child, I'm a fool for you?
Oh-oh, I'm a fool for you

Did ya ever wake up in the morning
Just about the break of day
Reach over and feel the pillow
Where your baby used to lay?
Then you put on your crying
Like you never cried before
Oh lord
Yeah, you even cry so loud
You give the blues to your neighbour next door
Ever since you were five years old, baby
I been a fool for you, little girl
Way down in my soul
I'm a little fool for ya

So I know it's something
Oh, oh, Lord, I'm a fool for you
