Lyrical Friday

Stevie Ray Vaughan had a beautiful career with his first album in 1983 and stretching 20 albums later that include box sets and best of’s after his life was cut short by a tragic helicopter accident in 1990. I love so much of his work but chose the one that holds the most memories for me. Stevie Ray Vaughan was a true Guitar Hero.

Pride and Joy from his debut 1983 album Texas Flood.

Pride and Joy

Well you’ve heard about love
givin’ sight to the blind
My baby’s lovin’ cause
the sun to shine

(chorus)
She’s my sweet little thang
She’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby
I’m her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby
heart and soul
Love like ours won’t
never grow old

(chorus)

Yeah I love my lady
she’s long and lean
You mess with her
you’ll see a man get mean

(chorus)

Well I love my baby
like the finest wine
Stick with her
until the end of time

(chorus)

Yeah I love my baby
heart and soul
Love like ours won’t
never grow old

(chorus)
