Lucille è un brano scritto e inciso dal grandissimo B.B. King, contenuto nell'album omonimo pubblicato nel 1968 e il cui nome prende ispirazione da una sua chitarra, una Gibson ES-335 nera. Il disco conferma il chitarrista statunitense come protagonista indiscusso del blues. Il pezzo è ovviamente anch’esso un blues ma con un tempo lento, molto elegante e raffinato. La melodia è assente ma la voce riesce comunque ad essere musicale.
