18 Comments

Oh yeah

It’s been one of those days
Where things don’t go my way
Ooh, and it seems like always
The thing to blame is my ways

You’re the one I’m thinkin’ of
The one I’m dreamin’ of

You are my lady
I am your man
Some call it crazy
But they don’t understand

When I’m gone
Baby, I’m always gone too long
That don’t get your mind to wonderin’
If I still care, ’cause, baby, I still care

You’re the one I’m thinkin’ of
The one I’m dreamin’ of is you, uh

You are my lady
I am your man
Some call it crazy, but
They don’t understand

Our love (ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, ooh, our)
Come on, babe (ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, our love)
Come on, babe (ooh, ooh)
(Ooh, our love)
(Ooh, ooh)
Yeah, yeah (ooh, our love)

You are my lady
I am your man
Some call it crazy, baby
But they don’t understand

This is our love
Yeah, yeah
This is our love
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Come on, girl
Let me be your man
Keep it together, babe
They don’t have to understand
Our love

Gary Lee Clark Jr. (born February 15, 1984) is an American musician based in Austin, Texas. Clark has shared the stage with various legends of rock and roll, and has stated that he is “influenced by blues, jazz, soul [and] country, as well as hip hop”. Clark’s musical trademarks are his distorted guitar sound and smooth vocal style.

Gary Clark Jr. began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Clark played small gigs throughout his teens, until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club Antone’s. Antone’s was the launch pad from which Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan redefined blues at the time. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Jimmie Vaughan. Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock and roll scene. Clark’s music demonstrates how the blues have shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, from hip-hop to country.

  1. Good Morning Brother! 😀

  2. Great song. I love when it picks up steam! Very passionate performance. Another great pick!!

  3. I actually first heard about him because Warner Brothers donated a gift basket with some of his promo stuff in it to one of our charity events. He’s very talented.

  4. Very good choice Sylvester, I haven’t heard his music before and I really like it 🙂

  5. I’ve never heard this version before! Wow love this blues guitar! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  6. Clark is a seriously gifted songwriter. I’d probably love his music even he wasn’t a beast at the guitar. I just wrote a review of his 2015 album The Story of Sunny Boy Slim. Anyone interested can check it out here: https://criticoptimist.com/2017/03/29/gary-clark-jr-the-story-of-sonny-boy-slim/

  7. Thank you for sharing review. I happened upon one of Gary’s videos by chance and have been a fan ever since. I love his unique blend of blues and other musical influences. His guitar style is so soulful and expressive.
