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 »

Oh, I was lying in the bed with fever
And I was, burning up inside
My baby walked, in my bedroom
And I could hardly open my eyes
She said that she was going to the pawnshop
Just across the track
She started packing some clothes in a hurry
And then she said she would be right back
But I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day, yeah
Well I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since she went away
I remember so well when she slammed the door
But the girl didn't make it back no more
I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day
Well, I waited for 24 hours, and I was just about to starve to death
It didn't look like she was comin' back, so I had to look out for myself
Well I called, the police department, to find out what they knew
They said, "No, by heck, but we will get her yet", because they was lookin' for her too
Well I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day, yeah
Well I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since she went away
Well I don't know what happened a-cross the track
But I know my baby didn't make it back
I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day

Well I called, my Dr. Foster, and when the girl answered the phone
I got a funny feeling, the way she said Dr. Foster had gone
She said, "He left with a lady patient, about 24 hours ago"
I added two and two, and here's what I got: I got I'll never see that girl no more
Well I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day, yeah
But I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since she went away
If Dr. Foster has got her, then I know I'm through
Because he's got medicine and, money too
I ain't seen hide `nor hair of my baby, since that day
Whoa, no
