Lord, have mercy, Lord, have mercy on me
Lord, have mercy, Lord, have mercy on me
Well, if I've done somebody wrong
Lord, have mercy if you please

I used to have plenty of money
The finest clothes in town
Bad luck and trouble overtook me
And God, look at me now

Please have mercy, Lord, have mercy on me
And if I've done somebody wrong
Lord, have mercy if you please

Keep on working, my child
Oh, in the morning, oh
Lord, have mercy

If I've been a bad girl, baby
Yeah, I'll change my ways
Don't want bad luck and trouble
On me all my days

Please have mercy, Lord, have mercy on me
And if I've done somebody wrong
Lord, have mercy if you please
Have mercy on me

I neither like nor dislike blues, but this is quite likeable indeed!

These two artists in concert together are well worth seeing!!
CRINGE.
Super song.

For some reason I had thought of Bonamassa as a poser. Never bothered to listen. But yeah, for a young white dude, he's pretty legit. He's got some mighty chops.
 
 
He was a phenom at 8 years old.  I remember reading about him in the Syracuse New Times in the late Seventies and early Eighties.

Another upbeat song to make me do things faster... nope.
Great pairing of voice and guitar

Talk about 'going through the motions'...

Yeah Jeff Beck has always been my favorite guitarist. But Jeff is starting to get a little sleepy. Hasn't really done anything exciting since the "Tal and Vinnie" era. Love Joe's energy. 

 
Hah listen to his new album Loud Hailer.  I blaring it full blast the other day and my 19 year old came down and said "OMG who is this,m it's SICK"  and spent the rest of the song lurching about the kitchen,

 
I m seeing Joe on Sunday at the Chesapeake Bay Blues Fest. Beth was there 2 years ago and she can really perform. Joe is so amazing live. He is like that old Memorex commercial his sound just blows you away.

Obviously what makes this song is Beth Hart's vocals. Joe Bonamassa on his own just tends to sound the same after a while.

 
I agree. Joe is great all the time.

And like so many great guitarists, he makes the mistake of insisting on singing too. Thankfully he left such duties to someone marginally more capable than him on this one.

I think they're both channeling Bonnie Raitt.

I should have guessed that Joe Bonamassa was involved as this is pure, 24-carat, unadulterated, chewy, shit-kickin' blues rock. The motherlode. Beth Hart's got the right voice for it, too. An immediate 8 from the toe-tappin' Nottingham jury.

 
straight up dude, this woman does it pure kick-ass with smokin' Joe

I second that. Mostly boring...to me...maybe I'm just not in the mood. Seems a tad perfunctory. Don't hate it. Just saying.

 

I dare say Joe and Beth couldnt give a rats about your retarded description " bombastic " WTF are you on ? Lots of word wankers post in here. "Perfunctory"

Joe and Beth are not a group. Independant Artists that have both been doing there own stuf for 15 years or more. A very nice colaboration.
Love it!

Dang, that lady can sing.  And that man can play!  But somehow, the sum is less than the parts.  Too bombastic to be great blues.  Sorry Joe.  Sorry Beth.

Nice combo!
I saw Beth Hart open for - somebody - way back in about 2001.  She rocked!  I think it says a lot that I remember her and not the main act.  Check out her album "Screamin' for my Supper".  
yes, indeed. nuthin' but the blues.
Right song at the right time.  Feeling the groove.
