Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Imitation of the blues
This probably ain't it, but there's a Tom Waits song called "Invitation to the Blues" on his Small Change album (released around 1978, I think). Starts out "She's up against the register/Coffee and a spatula/Overnight deliveries/And tickets for the bachelors/She's a ___ conversation/From her hair down to her shoes/She's just an invitation to the blues" (probably some errors in there -- it's been a long time since I heard it). Like I say, this may be a different song, but since you hadn't gotten any other responses I figured I'd givbe it a try. Good luck.
