Stormy Monday

Album: Stormy Monday (1947)
  • They call it stormy Monday but Tuesday's just as bad
    They call it stormy Monday but Tuesday's just as bad
    Wednesday's worse and Thursday's also sad

    Yes, the eagle flies on Friday and Saturday I go out to play
    Eagle flies on Friday and Saturday I go out to play
    Sunday I go to church, then I kneel down and pray

    Lord have mercy, Lord have mercy on me
    Lord have mercy, my heart's in misery
    Crazy about my baby, yes, send her back to me

  • Richard from Hialeah, Fl I haven't heard all the versions of this song but Lee Michaels take, in my opinion, would be hard to beat----His Hammond organ, along with Frosty's drums, is incredible----Hard to believe his name is not on that list.........
  • Ned from Falls Church, VaThe most hauntingly beautiful blues song ever. The Allman Brothers verison trumps all. Gregg nails it & Dickey/Duane guitar work is sensational; no one does pentatonic scale more emotionally (BB King once said of Duane: "That fellow get's it") or with more emphasis. Clapton come close but it's number 3. Who is number 2? A guy on YouTube. See for yourself. He explains the mechanics of the song and then play's it so well, it's very clear he "get's it".
  • Mike from Bloomington, IlWhat Joe said. Stevie Ray Vaughan with Albert King, on the album In Session.
  • Joe from Rocky Ridge, MdAlso recorded by Stevie Ray Vaughan.
