Stevie Ray Vaughan - Pride and Joy

"Pride and Joy", grabada en 1982, es la segunda canción en el álbum Texas Flood de Stevie Ray Vaughan. Es una canción de blues siendo esta uno de sus temas más famosos. Partes de los solos son del tema "I'm Cryin ". Stevie escribió esta canción para su esposa en ese momento, Leonora, pero ella pensó que la había escrito para una ex novia de Vaughan, por lo que escribió otra canción para ella ('Lenny').

Esta canción (así como 'Rude Mood') parece estar influida por una primera canción de Vaughan, "Live Another Day", del álbum In the Beginning.

Well you've heard about love givin' sight to the blind
My baby's lovin' cause the sun to shine
She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby, heart and soul
Love like ours won't never grow old
She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

Yeah, I love my lady, she's long and lean
You mess with her, you'll see a man get mean
She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

Well I love my baby, like the finest wine
Stick with her until the end of time
She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy

Yeah I love my baby, heart and soul
Love like ours won't never grow old
She's my sweet little thing, she's my pride and joy
She's my sweet little baby, I'm her little lover boy
