This song was originally done in October of 1953 by Guitar Slim. His version is great; but there is just something about the way JB sings this song. He bellows it with SO much passion behind it; even if one didn’t know anything of his life story the listener could just tell, he wants to believe what he is singing.-🥰

The things that I used to do
Lord, I won’t do no more
The things that I used to do
Lord, I won’t do no more
I used to sit and hold your hand, baby
Crying, begging you not to goI would search all night for you, baby
Lord, and my search would always end in vain
I would search all night for you, baby
Lord, and my search would always end in vain
But I knew all along, darling
That you was hid out with your other manI’m going to send you back to your mother, baby
Lord, and I’m going back to my family, too
I’m going to send you back to your mother, baby
Lord, and I’m going back to my family, too
‘Cause nothing I do that please you, baby
Lord, I just can’t get along with you

This song has been done a few times… I’m rather confident in saying EVERYONE knows Elvis’s version which is frikken GREAT… But here is a much different sounding HB Hotel… sang by a local celebrity.. Mr. Dax Riggs… in my book, his music makes him sound like the he is the King Of The Tortured….

Well, since my baby left me
I found a new place to dwell
It’s down at the end of lonely street
At heartbreak hotelAnd I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby, I could dieOh, though it’s always crowded
You still can find some room
For broken hearted lovers
To cry there in their gloomI get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby, I could dieWell, the bell hop’s tears keep flowing
And the desk clerk’s dressed in black
They been so long on lonely street
They’ll never look backI’ve been so lonely baby
I’ve been so lonely baby
I’ve been so lonely baby, I could dieSo if your baby leaves you
You got a tale to tell
Just take a walk down lonely street
To heartbreak hotelI get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby
I get so lonely baby, I could dieI could die
