I got this old friend, he's never let me down. Whatever the weather he'll always be around. Let me introduce him - my good friend, My old friend, the blues. He never gives up, whatever I say. Just like my shadow my friend's here to stay. He'll never leave me, my good friend, My old friend, the blues. Rain or shine he's there all of the time Whatever I do. Wherever I roam I'm never alone. How I wish that those words weren't true. No matter where I go or how hard I try Mr Blues gonna be there 'til the day I die. Won't somebody save me from my good friend, My old friend, the blues. Rain or shine he's there all of the time Whatever I do. Wherever I roam I'm never alone. How I wish that those words weren't true. No matter what I say or how hard I try Mr Blues gonna be there 'til the day I die. Won't somebody save me from my good friend, My old friend, the blues.

Ninety miles to Memphis. Lord, I got to get back home. (x2) Got to find my Baby, I'm so tired of being alone. Ninety miles to Memphis. Maybe I could take a train. (x2) Oh my heart is aching Just to see her face again. I ain't got no money Maybe I could hitch a ride (x2) Won't someone help me Get me by my Baby's side. If I don't see my Baby Then I'll just break down and cry. (x2) Cause without my Baby I might as well lay down and die. Ninety miles to Memphis. Lord I'm going back to stay. (x2) Once I find my baby I ain't never goin' away.

Looked in the mirror and what did I see? A sick-lookin' creature where my body used to be. Hair black and greasy, man I looked quite a sight, But that's the price that you pay for a whisky-soaked night. Bloodshot blues, got those bloodshot blues. Mister can you tell me how I'm gonna lose Those bloodshot blues. I'd tell you all that happened if I only knew myself, But that Jack Daniels boy has made me something else. I know I'm pouring money right down the sewer drain, But when Friday night comes round i will be doing it again. Eight coffees later I was feeling OK Except for cuts and bruises that just wouldn't go away. Blood on my clothes, there must have been a fight. Well you get what you pay for on a whisky-soaked night. The phone rang out at lunchtime as I crawled out of bed. My Baby's voice came loud and clear and this is what she said: Baby boy I love you, but this drinkin' ain't right. You gotta house between me and a whisky-soaked night. Bloodshot blues, got those bloodshot blues. You know I gotta choose between my Baby and the night. Well my drinkin's all wrong, but my Baby's alright. Bloodshot blues, got those bloodshot blues. You know I gotta choose between my babe and Friday night. Well I might see you later, say on Saturday night.

Well he's God and God don't never change God always will be God God in the middle of the ocean God in the middle of the sea By the help of the great creator He's truly been God to me. God in creation God when Adam fell God way up in heaven God way down in hell. Spoke up to the mountain Said how great I am Want you to get up this mornin' Skip around like a lamb. God in the time of sickness God in the doctor too In the time of your trouble He truly was a God to you. God in the pulpit God way down at the door He's God in the amen corner God all over the floor.
