Who's Gonna Take Care of Lucille?
Work of Art
Uniquely styled blues, rock, pop, reggae, good-feeling-music.
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?
