Bonnie Raitt and Taj Mahal Performing Done Changed My Way Of Living

Live on NBC’s The Today Show!

This is how the blues ought to be played! With respect, it is strict ‘TIME’ that ruins the modern blues. The old masters never worried about time!

Bonnies got the blues way down in her heart. The way she picks and slides in the same tune is outstanding!

Lyrics:
I’ve got to change my way of living,
Cause trouble’s all that I can see.
I gotta change my way of living,
Lord trouble’s all that I can see.
My life is in such a mess,
There ain’t no one to blame but me.
My good girl tried to tell me,
Wouldn’t hear a thing she said.
Lord my good girl tried to tell me,
Wouldn’t hear a lonesome thing she said.
Now she’s taken her things and left me,
No place for me to lay my head.
Blue, Lord I’m blue.
Raining down on me.
I gotta change my way of living,
Cause the blues is all I see.
Blue, Lord I’m blue.
Raining down on me.
I gotta change my way of living,
Change my way,
The blues is all I see.
Now when your luck runs out,
That’s when your friends will run out too.
Lord, when your luck runs out,
Your fairweather friends will run out too.
You’re a very lucky man, Lord
If there is just one who’ll stand by you.
Blue, Lord I’m blue.
The blues raining down on me.
I gotta change my way of living,
Cause the blues is all I see.
Where It All Begins
Change My Way Of Living
