He's just a singer a natural born guitar ringer
kind of a clinger to sad old songs
he’s not a wall behind us
he’s a new known fighter
his names a reminder of a blues man that’s already gone
So he started drinkin'
took some things that messed up his thinkin'
he was short of sinkin' when she came along
he was alone in the spot light
not to much left inside
she changed all that one night
when she sang him a 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 wasted so much of your life
runnin’ threw the dark nights
let me shine a lil' love light down on that blues man
he got so sick from speedin'
all the things they said he was needin'
if he was to keep on pleasin' all of his fans
he got cuffed on dirt roads
he got sued over no show
She came an took all that old loath down off that blues man
(and he said)
