"The Thrill Is Gone" is a slow minor-key blues song written by West Coast blues musician Roy Hawkins and Rick Darnell in 1951. Hawkins' recording of the song reached number six in the Billboard R&B chart in 1951. In 1970, "The Thrill Is Gone" became a major hit for B.B. King. His rendition helped make the song a blues standard.





Lyrics


The thrill is gone

The thrill is gone away

The thrill is gone baby

The thrill is gone away

You know you done me wrong baby

And you'll be sorry someday


The thrill is gone

It's gone away from me

The thrill is gone baby

The thrill is gone away from me

Although, I'll still live on

But so lonely I'll be


The thrill is gone

It's gone away for good

The thrill is gone baby

It's gone away for good

Someday I know I'll be open armed baby

Just like I know a good man should


You know I'm free, free now baby

I'm free from your spell

Oh I'm free, free, free now

I'm free from your spell

And now that it's all over

All I can do is wish you well
