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
