Whitesnake

Whitesnake is a British rock band, founded in 1978 by David Coverdale after his departure from his previous band, Deep Purple. Their early material has been compared by critics to Deep Purple, but by the mid 1980s they had moved to a more commercial hard rock style. Four of the band's earliest albums reached the top 10 in the UK, with Ready an' Willing (1980), Come an' Get It (1981), Saints & Sinners (1982) and Slide It In (1984). The band's 1987 self-titled album was their most commercially successful worldwide, and contained three of their most recognisable songs, "Here I Go Again", "Still of the Night" and "Is This Love". In 1988, Whitesnake was nominated for the Brit Award for Best British Group. In 2005, Whitesnake was named the 85th greatest hard ro… more »

I love the blues
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it you can never understand
So many times I thought about it
And now I know just what it means to be a man 

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate
'Cause I love the life I live
I'm gonna live the life I choose
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues 

All of my life I've had a strange reputation,
I've been the black sheep of the family all along
I never know if in my heart I'm really guilty
But, I've been accused of never knowing right from wrong 

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate
'Cause I love the life I live
I'm gonna live the life I choose
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues 

My father said you're crazy
He said what you gonna do?
I left with my guitar and said
I'll leave it up to you

I'm gonna live the life I love
And live the life I choose,
And I'm walking in the shadow of the blues 

I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it I will tell you once again
All of my life I've been caught up in a crossfire
'Cause I've been branded with the devil mark of cain 

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate
'Cause I love the life I live
I'm gonna live the life I choose, yeah
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues, yeah
