Pride & Joy-Stevie Ray Vaughan

The lyrics to Stevie Ray Vaughan’s rock classic “Pride and Joy” don’t much deeper than “Yeah I love my lady, she’s long and lean…she’s my swet little baby, I’m her little lover boy.” But the no-prisoners guitar and hard-driving lyrics propel this blues anthem into a perennial party favorite.

Well you’ve heard about love givin’ sight to the blind
My baby’s lovin’ cause the sun to shine
She’s my sweet little thang she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby I’m her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby heart and soul
Love like ours won’t never grow old
She’s my sweet little thang she’s my pride and joy
She’s my sweet little baby I’m her little lover boy

We first played “Pride and Joy” with the father of the bride singing lead and playing guitar. Now that was fun. Any time you can make a wedding feel more like a “black tie frat party” you should go for it.

Let me know what you think.
