You need to start a thread with the title in the thread name (or a key phrase/word)....Most don't respond to just lyrics request....Sorry. Have you checked the database? Use the box in the upper right of this page.

Here you go- got it from Cowpie

Blue Stay Away From Me
Recorded by the Delmore Brothers - 1950

D G7 D D7
Blues - stay away from me
G G7 D
Blues - why don't you let me be
A7 D
Don't know why - you keep on haunting me

Love - was never meant for me
True love - was never meant for me
Seems somehow - we never can agree

Life - is full of misery
Dreams - are like a memory
Bringing back - your love that used to be

Tears - so many I can't see
Years - don't mean a thing to me
Time goes by - and still I can't be free

I second catspaw's advice, put the title of the song in your thread title and you greatly increas the odds that the right folks will respond. In this case, I am familiar with the song. Here it is from memory: Blues, stay away from me; blues, why don't you let me be; (I) don't know why, you keep a-haunting me.

Tears, so many I can't see; years, don't mean a thing to me; time goes by, and still I can't be free.

Love, was never meant for me; true love, was never meant to be; it seems somehow, we never could agree.

(Repeat first verse)

Hope that helps.

The orginal Delmores version is available on CD on a magnificent compilation of 20 of their best tracks: Delmore Brothers 'Freight Train Boogie' Ace CDCH 455. 'Blues Stay Away' is a resilient little song, having been covered by everyone from Johnny Burnette and the Rock and Roll Trio, to Jeff Beck, to JB Hutto, to Ladysmith Black Mambazo - it shines in a multitude of styles.
