These Blues Lyrics by J. J. Cale
These Blues by J. J. Cale
Life, it seems, is like a dream until you have to talk
Don't wonder for a moment if you win or lose
Just stop and stay and watch the day and listen to these blues
If it don't work for you, girl put it off your mind
If you drink anew from the well you find the bottom line
A fancy woman told me "John, you're bound to do this"
So I just stay and watch the day and sing these lonesome blues
The blues is not a song you sing, it is a way of life
I've hung around them bar rooms girl, almost all my life
The men, they all are gamblers, they take all they can use
So if I find no peace of mind I'll settle for these blues
