The Thrill Is Gone lyrics



The Thrill Is Gone – B.B. King!

The thrill is gone, the thrill is gone away.
The thrill is gone baby, the thrill is gone away.
You know you done me wrong baby,
and you’ll be sorry someday.

The thrill is gone, it’s gone away from me.
The thrill is gone baby, the thrill is gone away from me.
Although, I’ll still live on,
but so lonely I’ll be.

Solo

The thrill is gone, it’s gone away for good.
All the thrill is gone baby, it’s gone away for good.
Someday I know I’ll be open-armed baby,
just like I know, a good man should.

You know, I’m free, free now, baby, I’m free from your spell.
Oh, I’m free, free, free now, I’m free from your spell.
And now that it’s all over,
all that I can do is wish you well.
