The Blues Keep Coming

Lyrics: Bill Payne, Gabe Ford
Music: Bill Payne, Gabe Ford

One of the new songs on Little Feat's album Rooster Rag.

The snows are melting, the riverís on the rise
Iím looking for shelter, thereís not a place to hide
The wind is whipping like I never seen before
Bearing down like a freight train just outside my door

The blues keep coming, I canít stop them anymore
The blues keep coming, I canít stop them anymore

Cut loose and set adrift, a million miles of dust
On deserted roads and rusted skied, years of fading hope and trust
A thousand shouting voices now a distant roar
Iím left here in this darkness these many miles from shore

The blues keep coming, I canít stop them anymore
The blues keep coming, I canít stop them anymore

In my dreams itís a long long way to heaven
I see an angel floating in the sky
In my prayers when itís two shades south of midnight
Give me wings that I might fly

A telling lie with unforgiving days
And if I threw the dice I wouldíve lost them anyway
Now I need that angel to hold me tight
Give me some loviní, hHelp me make it through just one more night

The blues keep coming, I canít stop them anymore
The blues keep coming, I canít stop them anymore
