Subject: RE: Lyr Req: the blues my naughty sweetie gave to
The Greenbriar Boys did it on their second album. Something like:
There are blues you get from wimmin
When you see 'em goin' swimmin'
And you haven't got a bathin' suit yourself.
There are blues that start to flicker
When you've had a lot of likker
And someone goes and takes it off the shelf.
There are blues you get from waitin' in the dark,
And blues you get from walkin' in the park,
There are blues you get from settin'
In a taxicab and frettin'
Every time you hear the meter jump the clock.
And there are blues you get from cryin'
When your Uncle Bill is dyin'
And he afterwards forgets you in his will.
There's the blues you get from kisses
When you're walkin' with your missus
And another woman shouts, "Hi, Bill!"
But the kind to make you start, make you really shake and shiver,
The kind to make you want to end it all in the river,
That's the blues my naughty sweetie gave to me.
