I wasn't born down in the Delta
I never played with Muddy Waters
I play my blues louder
Than the purists think I oughta

I didn't come from Chicago
Never stood on the killing' floor
But I payed my dues in bar rooms
Had some blood upon the door
If I leave this earth tomorrow
I'll tell you all one thing
If I come back to this world lord
I'm comin' back a king

I spent some time in Memphis
And I hung around on Beale
I found out that those Memphis cats
They played with a ton of feel
I drove passed Graceland, I could not go inside
I had to leave old Elvis with some tiny speck of pride
If I leave this earth tomorrow I'll tell you all one thing
If I come back to this world lord
I'm comin' back a king

Chorus
Albert, Freddy and BB, they just seemed to understand
That the measure of the money, ain't the measure fo the man
Beach front condos, swimming pools,silver cloud rolls
Won't mean a thing if you can't get the soul
I wasn't raised in the cotton
Didn't miss too many meals
I heard young BB King sing
And found out how it feels

I didn't hock my old guitar
Never had to sell my soul
But travelled every twisted road
And I payed up every toll
So if I leave this earth tomorrow
I'll tell you all one thing
If I come back to this world lord
I'm comin' back a king

Chorus
Repeat chorus
