Subject: Storyville--"Good day for the blues"

Here's the basics of "Good day for the blues" by Storyville.

Intro: F-C-F

F                    C
Sometimes you fly so high
F                         C
You can't find a place to land
                 C
Got money in the bank
F               G
A drink in your hand
                   C--F
When the love gets low
F                   Em-F
Someone's gonna lose
F                 C      G                             C
Cause our love is driftin, and it's a good day for the blues

                      C
When you shuffle your cards
F
You always have a winning hand
C
When luck is on the run (?)
F                        G
You never have to take a stand
                   C--F
When the chips get low
                        Em--F
You're gonna have to choose
F                 C       G                            C
Cause our love is driftin, and it's a good day for the blues
C
It's a good day, for Bobby Blue Bland
                         F       G
For the thrill isn't gone, Magic Stand
C                   Em
Whatever it takes, I do what I can do
F                         D
To bridge this river that flows from me to you
               C    G                            C
Our love is driftin, and it's a good day for the blues

So many sites have the words to this song incorrect. The correct line is "When luck is on a roll". The other correct line is "and 'The Thrill Is Gone', and Magic Sam".

The Thrill is Gone, as in BB King.
