Summary: The title speaks for itself, I have a tune for it in my head but as I don't write music and can't sing, nobody is ever likely to hear it.

I Got The Blues

I got the blues,
right down to my shoes,
I got the blues
and I don't know what to do.
You treat me like a fool
and try to act so cool
I think I'm getting tired of you.

Oh baby, stop and think,
because we're on the brink
of say-ay-aying goodbye.
Oh baby, stop and think,
you're driving me to drink
and I've got no tears left to cry.

end chorus

Oh yeah I got the blues
and life was such a cruise
I got the blues
and now I'll sink or swim.
This ship is going down
that's why I wear a frown
because our future's looking dim.

Repeat chorus

I got the blues, oh yeah I got the blues,
right down to my shoes.
Life was such a cruise
but now I feel abused,
and our future's looking dim.
I got the blu-ue-ues.
I - got - the - blues.

Thanks Alice, hope it got you dancing round the room. Wish I could put the music to it though.

A kinda mid-tempo shuffle beat, almost waltzy? Great feel - very authentic.

Great blues words, poems. This deserves to be sung!

Really liked this - reminded me of the blues singer Mose Allison.

Write on, Fearless
