"You are the one that makes me glad, and you are the one that makes me sad."

That paradox is an awesome example of Buddy's introspective songwriting. I hope I am among several here who verify this. I have heard it sung by many who incorrectly sing, "...any other one makes me sad," although lyrically that makes sense to folks who haven't experienced a loved one both in joy and in sorrow.

And I did go back and listen to "Maybe Baby" to be sure of myself. The hit version (version 2) has Buddy's singing with his usual melisma, "A-and you are the one tha-a-at, makes me sa-a-ad." On the rare recording of the song from the Off the Record show - I think you can still YouTube that - the lyrics are more well-prounounced.

It's funny honey,
driftwood
