  • I was born under a bad sign
    Left out in the cold
    I'm a lonely man who knows
    Just what it means to lose control

    But, I took all the heartache
    And turned it to shame
    Now I'm moving moving on
    And I ain't taking the blame

    Don't come running to me
    I know I've done all I can
    A hard loving woman like you
    Just makes a hard loving man

    So, I can say it to you, babe
    I'll be a fool for your loving, no more
    A fool for your loving, no more

    I'm so tired of trying I always end up crying
    Fool for your loving, no more
    I'll be a fool for your loving, no more

    I'm tired of hiding my feelings
    You left me lonely too long
    I gave my heart and you tore it apart
    Oh baby, you done me wrong

    Don't come running to me
    I know I've done all I can
    A hard loving woman like you
    Just makes a hard loving man

    So, I can say it to you, babe
    I'll be a fool for your loving, no more
    A fool for your loving, no more

    I'm so tired of trying I always end up crying
    Fool for your loving, no more
    I'll be a fool for your loving, no more
    I'll be a fool for your loving no more, no more, no more

    So, I can say it to you, babe
    I'll be a fool for your loving, no more
    A fool for your loving, no more

    I'm so tired of trying I always end up crying
    Fool for your loving, no more
    A fool for your loving, no more
    Fool for your loving no more Writer/s: Bernie Marsden, David Coverdale, Mick Moody

  • Mike from UsaWho played the guitar solo on "Fool for your Lovin..."? Sounded like Steve Vai?
  • Laurent from Manama, BahrainAs it has been widely reported in the press, the song was originally written to be presented to BB King. When the band recorded it, they thought it was too good and kept it for themselves. It was their first top 20 hit in Britain and really lauched their career. The original version and the live version from 1980 are brilliant. In my opinion, all the other versions lack warmth and soul and sound like a cheap commercial song.
