Blues Man

Lyrics

WELL I'M NOT MUCH FOR WATCHIN' THAT OL' SUNRISE,
I FEEL MUCH BETTER RISIN' WAY PAST NOON,
MY HEART IT GETS TO PUMPIN' AFTER MIDNIGHT,
WHEN MY SOUL IS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE MOON.

THE STAGE AND SMOKEY LIGHTS ATTRACT THE BARFLIES,
THEIR SHADOWED SILOUETTES YELL, 'PLAY A TUNE,'
I BLEED EM' OUT THE NOTES TILL ALL ARE BAPTIZED,
THROUGH THE WHISKEY AND THE RHYTHM OF THE BLUES.

CHORUS:
YOU SAY I NEED TO CHANGE TO MAKE YOU MONEY,
WELL HERE'S A TIP THAT'S PRICELESS, JUST FOR YOU,
YOU'LL NEVER TAKE THE BLUES OUT OF THIS BLUES MAN,
YOU'LL NEVER TAKE THIS BLUES MAN FROM THE BLUES.

I DON'T NEED WEALTH OR RICHES MESMERIZIN'
OR BASE MY WORTH ON SOMEONE'S CHEAP REVUE,
IF I WERE ON THIS STAGE FOR THE MONEY,
THE TRUTH WOULD FADE AND I WOULD BE LIKE YOU.

CHORUS:
YOU SAY I NEED TO CHANGE TO MAKE YOU MONEY,
WELL HERE'S A TIP THAT'S PRICELESS, JUST FOR YOU,
YOU'LL NEVER TAKE THE BLUES OUT OF THIS BLUES MAN,
YOU'LL NEVER TAKE THIS BLUES MAN FROM THE BLUES.

SO RUN BACK TO YOUR DADDY'S CITY HIGH RISE,
THAT IVORY TOWER BECKONS OUT TO YOU,
YOU CAN PICK AND SHOP AMONG THE NECK TIES,
YOUR LUST AWAITS THEIR WALL STREET REVENUE,

YOU SAY I NEED TO CHANGE TO MAKE YOU MONEY,
TO STRUT YOUR FASHIONS DOWN FIFTH AVENUE,
WELL HERE'S A LITTLE TIP THAT'S SWEET AS HONEY,
YOU'LL NEVER TAKE THE BLUES MAN FROM THE BLUES
YOU'LL NEVER TAKE THE BLUES MAN FROM THE BLUES...
