Famous Blues Covers


As the Years Go Passing By became a blues favorite thanks to Albert King who covered it on his album"Born Under a Bad Sign".









It is a song penned by Peppermint Harris for Fenton Robinson, who first recorded it in 1959 on Duke Records. It is credited to have been written by 'Deadric Malone' (a pseudonym of Don Robey), owner of Duke, which was a customary practice for some producers and label owners at that time. 





"There is nothing I can do
If you leave me here to cry
 There is nothing I can do
If you leave me here to cry
You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by
Well, I gave you all I own
That is one thing you can't deny
I gave you all I own
Honey, that is one thing you can't deny
You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by
I am gonna leave it up to you
Baby, so long so long good bye
Said I am gonna leave it up to you
Baby, so long so long good bye
You know my love will follow you
As the years go passing by
Oh... as the years go passing by."
