The Death Of J.B. Lenoir

The Death Of J.B. Lenoir

John Mayall & the Bluesbreakers

A car has killed a friend down in Chicago, thousand miles away
A car has killed a friend down in Chicago, thousand miles away
When I read the news, night came early in my day

J.B Lenoir is dead and it's hit me like a hammer blow
J.B Lenoir is dead and it's hit me like a hammer blow
I cry inside my heart that the world can hear my man no more

J.B had a struggle playin' unappreciated blues in vain
J.B had a struggle playin' unappreciated blues in vain
Now the Blues has lost a king and I've lost a friend who died in vain
