He's just a singer A natural born guitar ringer Kind of a clinger to sad old songs He's not a walk behinder He's a new note finder His name's a reminder of a blues man That's already gone So he started drinking and took somethings That messed up his thinking He was sure sinking when she came along He was born in the spot light not to much left inside She changed all that one night When she sang him this song
Hey baby I love you Hey baby I need you Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me Your some kind of macho man You wasted so much of your life running through the dark nights Let me shine a little love light down on the blues man
He got so sick of speeding all things They said he was needing if he was to keep on pleasing all of his fans He got cuffed on dirt roads He got sued over no shows She came and took all that old down off of that blues man
And he sang Hey baby I love you to Hey baby I need you Hey baby I do get tired of this traveling band I'm over 40 years old now Nights would be so cold now i If you hadn't stuck it out with this blues man
I'm over 40 years old now Nights would be so cold now If she hadn't hung around with that blues man.
