JAMES, Etta & JORDAN, Ellington



I’d rather go blind


Something told me it was over

When I saw you and her talking

Something deep down in my soul said cry girl

When I saw you and her walking


I would rather, I would rather go blind, boy

Then to see you walk away from me


So you see, I love you so much

That I don't want to see you leave me baby

But most of all I don't want to be free


I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking

Of your kiss and your warm embrace

When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now baby

Revealed the tears that were on my face


Baby, baby, baby, I would rather go blind.
