He's just a singer
A natural-born guitar ringer
Kind of clinger
To sad ole songs.

He's not a walk behinder
He's a new note finder
But his name's a reminder
Of a blues man that's already gone.

So he started drinkin
Took some things that messed up his thinkin
He was sure sinkin
When she came along.

He was alone in the spot light
Not too much left in sight
She changed all that in one night
When she sang him this song

Hey baby I love you
Hey baby I need you
Hey baby you don't need to prove to me
That you're some kind of macho man
You've wasted so much of your life
Runnin through the dark night
Let me shine a little love light
Down on this blues man.

He was so sick from speedin
All that stuff they said he was needin
If he was to keep pleasin
All of his fans

He got cuffed on dirt roads
He got sued over no shows
She took all that ole load
Down off that blues man.

Hey baby I love you too
Hey baby I need you
Hey baby I do get tired
Of this travellin band

I'm over 40 years old now
Nights would be cold now
If you hadn't stuck it out
For this blues man

He's over 40 years old now
Nights would be so cold now
If she hadn't hung around
For that blues man
