The Blues Is Allright

Lyrics: James "Little Milton" Campbell
Music: James "Little Milton" Campbell

Played by Bob Weir with Ratdog, with fragments interspersed in other songs such as "Truckin'" and "One More Saturday Night."

I got a song, I'm gonna sing
I'm gonna sing it just for you
If you dig the blues I want you to help me sing it too
I want everybody to hear me when I say
That the blues is back and it's here to stay
Let me explain it to you

I used to have someone
That meant the whole world to me
But she left me for someone else
Left my heart in misery
That's when I found out the blues
Would always be a part of me
Let me tell you this

You see, when she left me
She gave me the blues
That was the last thing
I found I could use
But now I'm glad she's left me
I'm glad she gave me the blues
You see I went out and found me
And then I found me someone new
That's why I can say this tonight

Hey, hey, the blues is all right
Hey, hey, the blues is all right
It's all right, it's all right
Every day and night

I'm glad she left me
I'm glad she gave me the blues
You see I'm grateful to the blues
It was the Blues that brought me to you
You see, if she 'd never given me the blues
I never would have found someone sweet like you
That's why I can sing

Hey, hey, the blues is all right
Hey, hey, the blues is all right
It's all right, it's all right
Every day and night
