I'm just a singer A natural born guitar ringer Kind of an old clinger To sad old songs
I'm not a walk behinder I'm a new note finder But my names a reminder Of a blues man that's already gone
So I started drinkin And took things that messed up my thinkin' I was sure sinkin' When you came along
I was alone in the hotlight Not too much left in sight But she changed all that in one night When she sang me this song
"Hey baby, I love you Hey baby, I need you Hey baby, you ain't gotta prove to me your some kind of macho man You wasted so much of your life Runnin through the dark night Let me shine some love light Down on a blues man"
I got so sick of speed And all the stuff they said I was needin If I was to keep pleasin to all of my fans I got cuffed on dirt roads I got sued for no-shows But you came and took all that old load down on this blues man
"Hey baby, I love you too Hey baby, I need you Hey baby, I do get tired of this travelin band I'm thirty years old now Nights would be cold now If you wouldn't have stuck it out With this blues man"
I'm thirty years old now Night sure would be cold now If you hadn't stuck it out With this blues man
