NOTES
This song is a tribute to the "KING of THE BLUES", B.B. King and his beloved guitar, Lucille.
I'm grateful to have met BB a few times over the years and talk with him about her. BB and Lucille...a beautiful love story!

Who’s Gonna Take Care of Lucille?
You won’t hear her crying
On this dark blue day in May
All you can hear is silence
Now that her man has gone away
As the sun is sinking
With all the sorrow that we feel
There’s just one thing that’s on my mind
Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Who’s going to hold her in their arms now?
Who in this world will make her sing?
Who’s gonna love her, the way that he loved her?
She was queen, he was King
As the stars are shining
On a Mississippi field
There’s just one thing I just don’t understand
Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Now her highway days are over
She’s far away from the bright spotlight
She sits alone, in a room filled with blues
Stays home all day and all night
And as the moon is rising
This life we live seems so surreal
Now there’s just one thing, that’s still on my mind
Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

As the sky is crying
Tell me how can this wound ever heal?
Through this pain I still keep wondering
Wondering who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?
