Kenny Wayne Shepherd “Blue on Black” (original)

Kenny Wayne Shepherd’s album Trouble is was an album I purchased right out of high school and “Blue on Black” is my favorite song on it. My plan was to just share Kenny Wayne Shepherd for today, but then I noticed on YouTube that Five Finger Death Punch actually covered this song and it’s awesome! I about flipped. I normally always feel that originals are best, but this one is amazing too.

Lyrics:

Night falls and I’m alone
Skin chilled to the bone
You turned and you ran
Slipped right from my hands

Blue on Black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
Don’t mean much
Joker on Jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn’t change a thing
Don’t bring you back
Blue on black
Oh yea
Blue on black

Blind, now I see
Truth, lies, and in between
Wrong can’t be undone
Slipped from the tip of your tongue

Blue on Black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
Don’t mean much
Joker on Jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn’t change a thing
Don’t bring you back
Blue on black
Oh yea
Blue on black

Blue on Black
Tears on a river
Push on a shove
Don’t mean much
Joker on Jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead man’s touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn’t change a thing
Don’t bring you back
Blue on black
Oh yea
Blue on black

    1. I don’t think it’s bad at all. He’s like blues rock and not everyone listens to that. He started in his teens, like 1995 and we’re the same age. He’s gone on to make more albums, but I don’t hear him on the radio that much anymore. 😁

  1. I LOVE Kenny Wayne Shepherd; we love blues in our house and he’s a favorite! We (hubby and I) saw him in concert about 20 years ago, not long after he hit it big, and wow, his guitar playing just blew me away! I’ve never seen anyone play the guitar like that before or since. Great pick, my friend!!

        1. That had to be amazing. Totally jealous! I do play guitar, but definitely not like him lol! 😂 It’s a fun hobby though. All is great here. As of now I’m doing good. Still getting over the holidays though. Crazy it’s 2019!

        2. It really was! I’m sorry!! I’m jealous that you do! My oldest son does and now Kayley is taking lessons, but I never learned. My mom would only let me learn the piano and violin…lol. I can’t play either now since I never practice, HAHA! That’s good…we are too and no one is in the back to school mode! We’re so lazy, lol. I know and the middle of Jan…ugh!

        3. That’s awesome that Kayley is taking music lessons! I don’t have time to practice either, but it’s so relaxing when I do. We pretty much sound like we’re in the same mode. Now that were in deep winter, I just want to lay around and read! Not happening though lol. 😂 Hope you guys have an awesome (rest of) January.

        4. Yes! I’m glad she is! She says she going to finish ballet after her recital in may and doesn’t want to take it again which is weird since she’s been taking it since she was 2, but I’m not going to force her, so I’m glad she’s interested in something else that’s artistic. My mom is hugely talented as a musician, so maybe she inherited some of her talent…we’ll see! Lol! Yes! And it’s been really cold here the past week or so, and that’s just made me want to curl up even more by the fire and do nothing. She said the best thing about homeschool was not having to stand out and get the bus at 7:30 am and get the bus in teen temps, lol! I agree (although there’s so much more better things, but not freezing is one 😉 ). You too! ♥
