I Belong To The Blues

The blues have got my soul,

And they ainít letting go.

Iím trying to break loose, but it ainít no use.

I quit asking why,

íCause til the day I die

I know damn well I belong to the blues.


I go down to the track

And I bet my little stack.

Whichever horse I choose, I always lose.

I call my girl for a date.

She tells me Iím too late.

There ainít no doubt I belong to the blues.


The boss just let me go.

He says I work too slow.

And now I sure could use some good news.

But thereís no running from

Just what Iíve become:

Another man who belongs to the blues.
