Buddy Guy

George "Buddy" Guy (born July 30, 1936) is an American blues guitarist and singer. Critically acclaimed, he is a pioneer of the Chicago blues sound and has served as an influence to some of the most notable musicians of his generation, including Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan. In the 1960s Guy was a member of Muddy Waters' band and was a house guitarist at Chess Records. He can be heard on Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" and Koko Taylor's "Wang Dang Doodle" as well as on his own Chess sides and the fine series of records he made with harmonica player Junior Wells. more »

Lord knows I've tried
To do what's right
One whole year of staying home
Both day and night

'Cause I smell a mean trouble
Way over yonder you know I heard a mean, yeah
Always in trouble people
Lord they just won't let me be

The people talk about me
Both night and day
I said, Lord please forgive them
And go the other way

'Cause I smell a mean trouble
Lord I smell trouble ahead of me, oh yeah
Yes, we're always in trouble
Lord, they just won't let me be

And from now on
I will not run and hide
I'll face trouble with a smile
And hope it pass me by

'Cause I smell a mean trouble
Way over yonder, I say I heard a mean
Yes, we're always in trouble
They just won't, they just won't
Lord, they just won't let me be, oh yeah
