FOOL, FOOL, FOOL – RAY BROWN AND THE WHISPERS – chords

FOOL, FOOL, FOOL v2 – RAY BROWN AND THE WHISPERS

Fool fool fool released in July 1965, was a cover of Roosevelt Grier’s song. Lyrically, the song is pretty slight, being a rather melodramatic variant on the “Mockingbird” theme, with a dash of “I Fought The Law” thrown in.

A former footballer, Ray was always known for his fit and non-indulging lifetyle, so it came as a great shock to friends and fans when he died suddenly on August 16, 1996 at 53
