Letter Writing Blues
Post date: May 20, 2009 6:33:33 PM
I've been writing blues this evening
held my pencil as it cried.
Yes, I been scrawlin' blue and grieving
while the guitar whined I sighed
cause when I read your letters
the blues can't keep me satisfied.
Teardrops keep me sinking
like a baby in a crib.
Tears will keep me drinking
like this baby needs a bib.
I can't seem to drown my sorrows
before I soak my head.
If you were a cheatin' lover
I'd have my anger keep me warm.
If you were double-dealin'
I'd let anger keep me warm.
Though you may let me simmer
it's these miles that do the harm.
My lips can take a beating
the've been long without a kiss.
My lips could use the breathing
they long to feel your kiss.
But my heart can't hold out woman
no more lonesome nights of this.
