I've Even Lost the Blues

Notes

I didn't really want to do another Elmore James riff song, I thought people might think I'm being lazy or over doing it or whatever, but this song just fell into my lap. I reckon the band plays it REALLY well and although "Right Her Right Now" from the 2nd CD is probably more of a commercial song with the Elmore riff, I think this is the best played and I really like the "got nothin left to lose" line.....

Lyrics

Every morning when I wake up I hang my head and cry (x2)
I've got nothing left to lose, I've even lost the blues.

Well happiness, that was once my address
I used to be a good husband, well - more or less

I should have seen it coming, should have known that she was going
I never thought that I would ever lose my happy home

I started out with nothing, I've got most of it left
I've got a hole in my heart, I've lost the best of the best.
