Hi. I have a tape of most of a song, the kicker of which is the line "Love's Been Linked To The Blues." I don't know who did it, or how it starts. If you know it, please contact me at the email address above. Thanks.

LOVE'S BEEN LINKED TO THE BLUES
David Olney © 1991

It was in the morning papers, the evening papers too,
And I saw it on TV, so I know it must be true.
This is no idle rumor. They've got the cold hard facts.
They've even checked it out on little mice and rats.
Just in case you haven't heard, I'll give you the bad news:
Love's been linked to the blues.

You start out feeling happy but then love brings you down.
You're acting like a hero; you end up like a clown.
In study after study, it's the heart that gets broke.
They're working 'round the clock searching for the antidote.
Well, it's true that it's sad, but it's sadder that it's true:
Love's been linked to the blues.

So you've got to be real careful, and always on your guard.
Falling in love, you know, it's harmful to your heart.
It's worse than they suspected. It's as bad as it gets.
The Surgeon General says you're better off with cigarettes.
If you must have your bad habits, why don't you stick to booze?
'Cause love's been linked to the blues.

Well, it's true that it's sad, but it's sadder that it's true:
Love's been linked to the blues.


[Recorded by David Olney on "Roses" (1991) "Philo So Far: The 20th Anniversary Folk Sampler" (1994), "Ghosts in the Wind" (1999), and "Border Crossing" (2003).]
