lyrics to I'd Rather Go Blind / Etta James

Etta James
I'd Rather Go Blind
Her Best (1997)
Something told me it was over
when I saw you and her talking,
Something deep down in my soul said, eCry Girle,
when I saw you and that girl, walking out.
I would rather, I would rather go blind boy,
Than to see you, walk away from me child, and all.
Ooooo 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

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,
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah.
And baby, baby, I would rather be blind boy
Than to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah
Baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind now

Something told me it was over,
When I saw you and her talkin.
Something deep down in my soul said, "Cry, girl."
When I saw you and that girl walkin around.
Whoo, I would rather, I would rather go blind, boy,
Then to see you walk away from me, child, no.
Whoo, so you see, I love you so much,
That I don't wanna watch you leave me, baby.
Most of all, I just don't, I just don't wanna be free, no.
Whoo, whoo, I was just, I was just, I was just,
Sittin here thinkin, of your kiss and your warm embrace, yeah.
When the reflection in the glass that I held to my lips now, baby,
Revealed the tears that was on my face, yeah.
Whoo, and baby, baby, I'd rather, I'd rather be blind, boy,
Then to see you walk away, see you walk away from me, yeah.
Whoo, baby, baby, baby, I'd rather be blind...

... update background information ...

Provided courtesty of songfacts.com:
-Etta James penned this Southern Blues classic during a visit to her friend Ellington "Fugi" Jordan in prison in 1967. The Detroit singer and songwriter had already outlined the song, in which he poured out his grief from being incarcerated not knowing when he would be released. He recalled to <a href="http://allhiphop.com" target="_blank" target="_blank">Allhiphop.com</a> in 2006: "I got tired of losing and being down. I was in prison and didn't know when I was going to get out. I sat in a piano room and began to write."James and Jordan then completed the song, but for tax reasons she gave her songwriting credit to her partner at the time, Billy Foster, who was a member of the '50s Los Angeles doo-wop group The Medallions. It was a decision that she came to regret as the royalties accumulated over the years.
