Ray Charles – Hit The Road, Jack lyrics

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more. (What you say?)
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.

Oh! Woman, oh woman, don't treat me so mean,
You're the meanest old woman that I've ever seen.
I guess if you said so
I'd have to pack my things and go. (That's right)

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.

Now baby, listen baby, don't-a treat me this-a way
Cause I'll be back on my feet some day.

Don't care if you do 'cause it's understood
You ain't got no money you just ain't no good.

Well, I guess if you say so
I have to pack my things and go. (That's right)

Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more.
Hit the road Jack and don't you come back no more.

Don't you come back no more.
(What you say)
Don't you come back no more
(Come on baby)
Don't you come back no more
(Repeat a couple times and fade)

    I love this song. There is a fast tempo, it's lively. We heard the piano, the bass and the trumpet. Thanks to this song, Ray Charles enters the pop market. He sings with the railets, first call cookies (as the Gospel's background group). The mood of the song deals with the break up.
    This song is adapted to the singer (Ray Charles because he was with a lot of women, who finally break up. He has not a stable life.
    About the pattern, the dispute is represented by Ray Charles and the railets, illustrating the women.
    At the end, there is a kind of improvisation, which is a typical thing of Black music (not base on things written). Slaves and Gospels improved.
