Please translate Lucille
The sound that you're listenin' to
is from my guitar that's named Lucille.
I'm very crazy about Lucille.
Lucille took me from the plantation,
or you might say brought me fame.
I don't think I can just talk enough about Lucille.
Sometimes when I'm blue it's seems like Lucille's tryin' to help me callin' my name.
I used to sing spirituals and I thought that this
was the thing I wanted to do.
But somehow or another, when I went in the Army,
I picked up on Lucille, started singin' blues.
Well, now when I'm payin' my dues,
maybe you don't know what I mean when I say payin' my dues. I mean when things are bad with me, I can always, I can always, you know, like, depend on Lucille.
Sorta hard to talk to you myself.
I guess, I'll let Lucille say all of a few words and then...
You know, I doubt if you can feel it like I do.
But when I think about the things that I've gone through.
Like, well, for instance, if I have a girlfriend and she's misusin' me.
And I go home at night, maybe I'm lonely.
Well, not maybe, I am lonely.
I pick up Lucille and it ping out those funny sounds, that sound good to me, you know.
Sometimes I get to play it where I can't even say nothin'
Sometimes I think it is cryin'.
You know, I could sing pop tunes like Frank Sinatra or Sammy Davis Jr.
I don't think I still could do it,
cause Lucille don't wanna play nothin' but the blues.
And I think I'm, I think I'm pretty glad about that.
Cause don't nobody sing to me like Lucille
Well, I'll put it like this, take it easy, Lucille.
I like the way Sammy sings and I like the way Frank sings,
but I can get a little Frank, Sammy, little Ray Charles,
in fact all the people with soul in this
A little Mahalia Jackson in there
One more Lucille!
Take it easy now..
You know, I've met a lot of you months ago.
A lot of you wanna know why I call the guitar Lucille.
Lucille has practically saved my life two, three times.
No kidding, really has.
I remember once I was in an automobile accident,
and when the car stopped turnin' over, it fell over on Lucille.
And it held it up off of me, really, it held it up off of me.
So that's one time it saved my life.
The way, the way, I came by the name of Lucille,
I was over in Twist, Arkansas, I know you never heard of that.
And one night, the guys started a ball over there, you know started brawlin', you know what I mean.
And the guy that was mad with this old lady.
When she fell over on this gas tank that was burnin' for heat.
The gas ran all over the floor and when the gas ran all over the floor,
the building caught on fire and almost burned me up tryin' to save Lucille
I imagine you're still wondering why I call it Lucille.
The lady that started the brawl that night was named Lucille.
And that's been Lucille ever since to me.
One more now, Lucille.
Sounds pretty good to me, can I do one more?
Look out, Lucille!
Sounds really good, I think I'll try one more, alright.
