RAY CHARLES


I Chose To Sing The Blues Lyrics

Now I could have been a gambler
'Coz I'm good with the cards
I could have been a lover
Breakin' other's hearts

And I feel so silly
Bettin' on the dice
And a lover seldom sees
The same girl twice

And that is why
(That is why)
Oh that's why I chose
(That's why I chose)
I chose to sing the blues, yes, I did

Now, I could have been a doctor
Helping the sick
I could have been a lawyer
But you know that ain't my stick

'Coz I feel so bad
If a patient didn't do well
And I feel just as bad
To leave a client in jail

And that is why
(That is why)
Oh that's why I chose
(That's why I chose)
I chose to sing the blues

Now a man has a lot
That he could present
Just to think
I could have been president

But I can't understand
What politicians say
So I wanna talk to you
In my own little way

And that is why
(That is why)
Oh
(That's why I chose)
I chose to sing the blues

Yes I did, friends
Don't you know what I mean
I like what I'm doin'

You know, I like the blues
Everybody understands
What I mean when I say

Something like this here
Yeah, that's what I'm talkin' 'bout
When I sing, yes, I did
