Sometimes I Just Get The Blues

 

Sometimes I just get the blues

So low down, only the blues will do

I need that sad song just to see me through

 

I got money, no holes in my shoes

I'm not sick, I don't have that excuse

Still and all sometimes, I just get the blues

 

Working too hard, drinking too much, sleeping with one eye on the door

The six o'clock news is getting harder to take

And everyday it's harder just to keep the faith

 

Sometimes I just get the blues

It's not something I easily choose

Can't help myself, I just get the blues

 

Someone says jump, I'm asking how high, someone wants my heart and my soul

I'm running like a train just to stand in one place

And everyday it's harder just to keep the faith

 

Sometimes I just get the blues

So low down, only the blues will do

I need that sad song just to see me through
