J.J. Jackson – But It’s Alright

I’ve heard this song many times but never knew much about it. It’s a good song The song peaked at #22 in the Billboard 100 in 1966. It was written by J.J. Jackson and Pierre Tubbs. The song also hit the charts again in 1969 when it was picked up by another record company. The single was recorded in the United Kingdom and was one of the first R & B hit singles to have been recorded in England.

Jackson is best known for this song, from the album of the same title. He worked with various artists, including jazz organist “Brother” Jack McDuff, jump blues singer Jimmy Witherspoon, the American all-girl group The Shangri-Las, and singer/songwriter/producer Sidney Barnes, among others.


But It’s Alright

You don’t know how I feel
You’ll never know how I feel
When I needed you to come around
You always try to bring me down
Oh, but I know, girl, believe me when I say that
You are surely, surely gonna pay, girl
But it’s all right all right girl
You can hurt me but it’s all right
Hey now, one day ah, you will see
You’ll never find a guy like me
Who’ll love you right both day and night
You’ll never have to worry ’cause it’s all uptight
Oh, but I’m tellin’ you girl and I know it’s true
That I was made to love only you
But it’s all right, all right girl
You can hurt me, but it’s all right
Go on, yeah

Oh, oh, yeah
My my my baby, wow, yeah!
But it’s all right all right girl
Hey, say it’s all right all right girl
Now there’s one thing I want to say, hey, yeah
You’ll meet a guy who’ll make you pay
He’ll treat you bad and make you sad
And you will lose the love you had
Oh, but I hate to say I told you so, but
Baby, you gotta gotta reap what you sow
But it’s all right all right girl
You are payin’ now, but it’s all right
So goodbye, now, goodbye, girl
You’re payin’ now, say bye-bye
You hurt me once, you hurt me twice
Oh, but-a baby, that don’t cut no ice
Hey, goodbye, baby
