‘Blues Run the Game’ lyrics (cover)

No Comments »

Original by Jackson Frank

When I’m not drinking, baby, you are on my mind …


Catch a boat to England baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I’ve been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same
Send out for whiskey baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service honey
Me and room service babe
Me and room service, well
We’re living a life of sin
When I’m not drinking baby
You are on my mind
When I’m not sleeping honey
When I ain’t sleeping Mama
When I’m not sleeping
You know you find me crying
Try another city baby
Another town
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I’ve been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues come following down
Living is a gamble baby
Loving’s much the same
Wherever I have played
Wheneer I’ve thrown them dice
Wherever I have played
The blues have run the game
Maybe tomorrow honey
Some place down the line
I’ll wake up older
So much older mama
I’ll wake up older
And I’ll just stop all my trying
