Margaret V Lyr Req: I'd Rather Go Blind (B. Foster/E. Jordan) (12) Lyr Add: I'D RATHER GO BLIND (B. Foster/E. Jordan) 15 Oct 01

Hi, Skarpi, glad you are well. I learned this from Etta James, so this version is more or less what she sings. Here you go:

B. Foster/E. Jordan

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 out

I would rather go blind
Than to see you walk away, walk away from me, child
'Cause you see, I love you so much
That I don't want to watch you leave me babe
Most of all I just don't want to be free.

I was just, I was just sitting here thinking
Of your kiss and your warm embrace
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips babe
Revealed the tears that was on my face

Baby, baby, I 'd rather be blind
Than to see you walk away from me, yeah
Baby, baby....I'd rather be blind....
