B.B. King – Back In L.A. lyrics
From Hollywood and Vine
To the Sunset Strip
There's so much going on
You can lose your grip
From early in the morning
Until late at night
They'll do you so wrong
They'll do you so right

Back in L. A.
Waiting for the sun to shine
Back in L. A.
Living down a life of crime
Back in L. A.
Working on another line
Back in L. A.
To pick up the dime
You must do the time

From way up in the canyons
Where the hot winds howl
To the mean city streets
Where the night hawks prowl
I can feel the rhythm play
The whole night long
Guess I'll stay in L. A.
And listen to this song

Back in L. A.
Waiting for the sun to shine
Back in L. A.
Living down a life of crime
Back in L. A.
Working on another line
Back in L. A.
To pick up the dime
You must do the time

You must do the time

Back in L. A.
Waiting for the sun to shine
Back in L. A.
Living down a life of crime
Back in L. A.
Working on another line
Back in L. A.
To pick up the dime
You must do the time

To pick up the dime
You must do the time
To pick up the dime
You must do the time
