I’d Rather Go Blind

Written by Ellington Jordan, Billy Foster

Performed by Etta James

Something told me that it was over, yeah
When I saw you and her talking

Something deep down in my soul said
“Cry, girl” cry, cry
When I saw you and her walking around

And I’d rather
I’d rather go blind boy
Than to see you walk away from me, chile no

So you see, I love you so much
That I don’t wanna watch you leave me, baby
Most of all I just don’t, I just don’t wanna be free, naw

I was just…I was just… I was just sitting here thinking
Of your kiss and your warm embrace, yea

When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now, baby,
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah

And Baby, baby, I’d rather, I’d rather be blind boy

Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me
