UNDERSTAND

I've traveled for miles around
It seems like everybody wanna put me down
Because I'm a blues man
But I'm a good man, understand
I went down to the bus station
Looked up on the wall
My money was too light, people
Couldn't go nowhere at all
I'm a blues man
But a good man, understand
The burdens that I carry are so heavy, you see it seems like it ain't nobody in this great big world
That would wanna help old B.
But I will be all right, people
Just give me a break
Good things come to those who wait
And I've waited a long time
I'm a blues man but a good man, understand
"I'm me," B.B. told Time Magazine in 1969
