I think I've got the rest of the lyrics correctly and I am looking for one word in the last verse:

"When you are down your friends can't be found

Just(????)together and follow you around

You've got the blues

The blues you never lose"

I hear that line as:

Your troubles gather and follow you around

--Stewie.

Subject: Lyr Add: BLUES YOU NEVER LOSE (from The Doerfels)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 12 Apr 14 - 01:14 PM

I haven't heard the Delmore Brothers' version, but I found this on Spotify, and the words were pretty clear.


BLUES YOU NEVER LOSE
As sung by The Doerfels on "What I'm Looking For" (2009)

When things go wrong,
And trouble comes along,
Ev'rybody living sings the same old song
About the blues,
The blues you never lose.

When misery
Begins to follow me,
I just start to singin' this weary melody
About the blues,
The blues you never lose.

When I feel low,
And got no place to go,
Instead of trav'ling, I sing a song I know
About the blues,
The blues you never lose.

When you are down,
And friends can't be found,
Your troubles gather and follow you around.
You got the blues,
The blues you never lose.
You've got the blues,
The blues you never lose.

[The Honky Tonk Playboys also sing this song on their album "Do You Remember?" (2010). They sing at a slower tempo, but the words are identical to those above.]
