Susan Tedeschi, Derek Trucks & Warren Haynes perform "I'd Rather Go Blind" at In Performance at the White House: Red, White, and Blues accompanied by the White House band featuring Booker T.


Something told me it was over

When I saw you and her talking

Something deep down in my soul said, cry girl

When I saw you and that girl, walking arround

I would rather, I would rather go blind boy

Than to see you, walk away from me child, and all

So you see, I love you so much

That I don't want to watch you leave me baby

Most of all, I just don't, I just don't want to be free no uh uh

I was just, I was just, I was just sitting here thinking

Of your kisses and your warm embrace, yeah

When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now baby (yeah, yeah)

Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah

And baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I would rather be blind boy

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

Baby, baby, baby (baby, baby, bay) I'd rather be blind now (baby, baby, bay)

Songwriters: Billy Foster / Ellington Jordan
