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 »

Well, I swear I didn't see you with your wife's best girlfriend
Drinkin' beer and a-dancin' to that western swing
And I didn't see you kiss her and leave that barroom with her
No, I didn't see you and I didn't see you and we didn't see a thing

George, I know I didn't hear you tell that blonde that you weren't married (no, uh-uh)
I know I didn't see you hidin' your weddin' ring either, did I?
And I know I couldn't have heard you call your wife and tell her that you were working

No, no, uh-uh, I didn't see you and I didn't see you and we didn't see a thing
We've got to stick together to keep our stories straight
Now, don't forget Ray, I was down in Atlanta, sure you were and I was workin' late
Yeah you know it's always good to see you, George, it's good to see you too
But I didn't see you and I didn't see you and we didn't see a thing

Hey Ray by the way do you leave that hundred bucks you owe me
I don't know what you're talkin' about George
Well, I'm sure you recall our bet on last night's football game
No, I don't but you know if I had seen you I certainly would've paid ya
But I didn't see you and I didn't see you and we didn't see a thing

We've got to stick together to keep our stories straight
Don't forget I was down in Atlanta and don't you forget I was working late
But you know it's always good to see you, George, it's good to see you too
But I didn't see you and I didn't see you and we didn't see a thing

I didn't see you and I didn't see you and we didn't see a thing
