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 »

Whoa, I'm so lonesome baby, now
I am in a travelin' mood, yes I am
Whoa, I'm so lonesome now now, honey
I tell ya I am in a travelin' mood, um hm

Guess I'll have to hop a freight to California
'Cause I've got the travelin' blues, yes I have

Sometime I feel like walkin', now now
Well I have no walkin' shoes, no, no
Well, sometime I feel like walkin', now now
I tell you I got no walkin' shoes, do you believe me

That's why I've got to hop a freight to California
'Cause I've got the travelin' blues, um hm

'Cause I keep drifting and drifting
Like a ship out on the sea
I keep drifting and drifting, now
Like a ship out on the sea, well
You see I ain't got no, nobody
In this world to care for me

If my baby, if my baby
Would only take me back again
Oh now if my baby now
Uh, would only take me back again
Well I may not be good for nothing, baby
But you see I haven't got no friends

Play it, son

I'll give you all my money, now
Tell me what more can I do, I want to know
(Just give some more, just give some more, just give some more)
I'll give you all my money, little girl
Tell me what more can I do, I've got to know
(Just give some more, just give some more, just give some more)
Well you may be a good little girl sometime
But you just won't be true

Bye-bye baby, now
Baby, bye-bye bye-bye
(Bye baby, bye-bye baby)
Bye-bye baby, now
Baby, bye-bye bye-bye
(Bye baby, bye-bye baby)

Well it's too late to worry, I want you to know
I said, oh, it's too late to cry
(Cry, cry, cry, no more)
