John Mayer Pays Tribute to Hero Stevie Ray Vaughan!

This audio recording of John Mayer covering SRV’sEmpty Arms” and “So Excited” live, proves why Mayer has earned the respect he has- as an incredible blues guitar.

John Mayer got the opportunity of a lifetime from Stevie Ray Vaughan’s former bandmates Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton when they asked him to join them at Austin City Limits, performing Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble’s classic hit ‘Empty Arms’.

Since then, John has showed no signs of stopping when it comes to covering his idol- and doing his songs justice,.

John Mayer has had nothing but wonderful things to say about his idol!

  • Half brutal force, half finesse,” on Stevie Ray Vaughan’s approach to music.
  • “Stevie Ray Vaughan’s music is a reference,” on Stevie’s impact on music.

 

+Empty Arms lyrics below+

You’re gonna miss me little baby the day that I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me little darlin the day that I’m gone
Cause I’m leavin in the mornin, won’t be back at all

You have run me ragged baby, It’s your own fault you’re on your own
You have run me ragged darlin, It’s your own fault you’re on your own
You didn’t want me no way baby, till your other man was gone

You can try to get me back baby, with all your tricks and charms
You can try to get me back baby, with all your tricks and charms
But when all your games are over, you’ll be left with empty arms

You have run me ragged baby, It’s your own fault you’re on your own
You have run me ragged darlin, It’s your own fault you’re on your own
You didn’t want me no way baby, till your other man was gone

You can try to get me back baby, with all your tricks and charms
You can try to get me back baby, with all your tricks and charms
But when all your games are over, you’ll be left with empty arms
