Picture of Jeff Beck and Stormy Monday Lyrics

Stormy Monday

This is another classic blues song. My favorite version is The Allmans at Filmore East. Can't beat it. Van Morrison, Albert Collins, BB King, T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Smith and many others did it. The great blues tunes all have a way of reaching the throats of many artists. They stand the test of time.

Few can argue that this is indeed a classic. Plus, this is another example of a song that has never been done less than terrific.

Lou Rawls' version is good too.

The Allman Brothers Band's version:

They call it Stormy Monday
But Tuesday's just as bad.
They call it Stormy Monday
But Tuesday's just as bad.
Lord, and Wednesday's worse
And Thursday's all so sad.

The eagle flies on Friday,
Saturday I go out to play.
The eagle flies on Friday,
Saturday I go out to play.
Sunday I go to church,
Gonna kneel down and pray.

Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy on me.
Lord have mercy,
Lord have mercy on me.
Though I'm tryin' and tryin' to find my baby,
Won't someone please send her home to me.
