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 »

Girl, I'm so lonesome tonight
I was just lyin' here wonderin' where you are
And what you're doin'
And Lord knows the thing that worries me the most

Is who yer don' it with
That's why, if you don't mind,
I'd like to sing these words to ya, ya see
I've got new books to read

But they ain't what I need
And this picture of you
Just won't do, no, no, baby
And the postcards you send would never (never) mend

The pain in my heart when we're apart
Girl I can make it through the day
But oh, please help me through the lonely nites
When I'm on my job It's not too hard

But when I go home
And I'm all alone (and I'm by myself babe you heard me)
You know you're my crutch I need you're sweet touch
Then it gets the night time again Lord when will it end

I'll make it through the day say, but oh
You don't know nothin' about the lonely nites
Well now night go away please hurry up day
'Cause my night lite burns and I toss and turn

Tell me what would I see if I turned on TV
I don't know what to do, Lord knows, I need me some you
I can make it through the day
Please help me through the lonely night
