Eric Clapton - BAD BOY (lyrics / from vinyl LP Clapton)

 



I'm just a bad boy
Long, long ways from home
I'm just a bad boy
Long, long ways from home
But I ain't got nobody
To bury me when I'm dead and gone
I'm the cat that scratches and a dog that bites
I'll be your box of matches, baby, when you need a light
I'm just a bad boy
Long, long ways from home
But I ain't got nobody
To bury me when I'm dead and gone
I used to be so good
I stay home every night
I give the best I could
It never turn, that's why
I can't stay here no longer
My luck is running slow
Got to keep on moving
But I ain't got no place to go
I'm just a bad boy
Long, long ways from home
I'm just a bad boy
Long, long ways from home
But I ain't got nobody
To bury me when I'm dead and gone

All posts in this channel are rendered in old school using restored vinyl LPs. Unless noted, this channel does not use recordings from CDs. As much as possible, I attempted to remove most of the pops and crackles from the original vinyl album. Some remastering was applied to make the performance cut through within the confines of the loudness wars.

Hope you enjoy.
