You Upset Me, Baby

Words & Music:

B. B. King & Jules Bihari


The Joe Bonamassa version of this is full transcribed in the November 2009 issue of Guitar Edge.  His intro riff is given below.










INTRO CHORDS:  Am  Dm  Am  Em  D#m  Dm  Am 


Em          Am

Well, she's 30 in the bust, 24 in the waist,

44 in the hips, man, she got what it takes!



      Dm             Am

You upset me, baby; yes, you upset me, baby.

           Em                  Dm                     Am

Like being hit by a falling tree.  Woman, what you do to me?


She's not too tall, her complexion is fair.

Man, she knocks me out, the way she wears her hair!




It's hard to describe her -- it's hard to start.

I better stop now, I got a very weak heart.






Yeah, it's hard to describe her -- it's hard to start.

I better stop now, I got a very weak heart.




OUTRO:  Am  Dm  Am  Em  D#m  Dm   Am  Adim7  A  Bb13  A7  A9
