Hank Williams, Jr. - The Blues Man Lyrics

Hank Williams, Jr. Lyrics

The Blues Man Lyrics
I'm just a singer, a natural born guitar ringer
Kind of a, clinger, to sad old songs
I'm not a walk-behinder, I'm a new note finder
But my name's a reminder, of a blues man that's already gone

So I started drinkin', and took things that messed up my thinkin'
I was sure sinkin', when you came along
I was alone in the hot lights, not too much left in sight
But she changed all that in one night, when she sang me this song

Hey baby I love you, hey baby I need you
Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me you're some kind of macho man
You've wasted so much of your life, runnin' through the dark nights
Let me shine some love light, down on the blues man

I got so sick of speed an'
And all the stuff they said I was needin'
If I was, to keep, pleasin'
All of my fans
I got cuffed on dirt roads
I got sued for no-shows
But you came and took all that old load
Down off this blues man

Hey baby, I love you too
Hey baby, I need you
Hey baby, I do get tired
Of this travelin' band
I'm thirty years old now
Nights would be cold now
If you hadn't stuck it out
With this blues man

I'm thirty years old now
Nights sure would be cold now
If you hadn't, hung around
With this blues man
