Ray Charles - I Chose To Sing The Blues Lyrics

I Chose To Sing The Blues Song Lyrics

I could have been a gambler

`coz I`m good with the cards

I could have been a lover

breakin` other`s hearts

and I feel so silly

bettin` on the dice

and a lover seldom sees

the same girl twice

and that is why (that is why)

that`s why I chose (that`s why I chose)

I chose to sing the blues, yes I did

now, I could have been a doctor

helping the sick

and I could have been a lawyer

but you know that ain`t my stick

`coz I feel so bad

if a patient didn`t do well

and I feel just as bad

to leave a client in jail

and that is why (that is why)

that`s why I chose (that`s why I chose)

I chose to sing the blues

(sax solo)

Now a man has a lot

that he could present

just to think I could have been

president

but I can`t understand

what politicians say

so I wanna talk to you

in my own little way

and that is why (that is why)

that`s why I chose (that`s why I chose)

I chose to sing the blues

Yes I did, friends

Don`t you know what I mean

I like what I`m doin`

You know, I like the blues

Everybody understands

What I mean when I say

Something like this here

Unnnnnnn-hoo

Yeah

Yeah-hoo

That`s what I`m talkin` `bout when I sing

{fade}
