WILD AND BLUE was written by John Scott Sherrill, a country song writer. It was a hit for John Anderson. His recording was Billboard's #1 country single in 1982, and appeared on his album "Wild & Blue." It has been covered by several other artists, such as Jessi Colter, The Mekons, Hank Williams Jr., and Lucinda Williams. This information is from Allmusic.com.

Lyrics found at several places on the Internet, and checked by me against John Anderson's video at YouTube:


WILD AND BLUE
(John Scott Sherrill)
© '82 Candy Cane Music, BMI

1. Way across town a phone rings off the wall.
If you know he ain't home, why do you keep callin'?
You're gonna drive yourself crazy and you know that it's true.
It's makin' you wild and blue.

CHORUS: Wild and blue, it's no wonder.
And look at the things that you do.
They could just take you up a-yonder, honey.
You're already wild and blue.

2. In somebody's room on the far side of town,
With your mind all made up and your shades all pulled down,
You know, someone is trying to satisfy you,
But he don't know you're wild and you're blue.

3. It's four in the morning and you're all alone,
With no place to go. Why don't you come home?
You know, I'll be right here, baby, waitin' for you.
I know you've been wild and blue.


[The Mekons are from England.]
