I AM THE BLUES (early version)

Cigarettes, I'm all alone with my smoke and ashes Cigarettes, I'm all 
alone with my smoke and ashes I’m a street walker, in my 
“love for sale” shoes Who? Who am I? I am the blues 
Knocking on my door, I can’t see God shining 
I can’t see God shining. I can’t see God shining 
I guess I can’t see too much, no more 
Baby because I am the blues. I am the blues 
Run down the streets of calico 'n 
Don’t tell the sky, they’re blue Just give me who. 
Who am I? I am the blues. 
I am the blues Baby because I am the blues Soothe me. 
Horn's warm red love making - Funky music Soothe me. 
Horn's warm red love making - Funky music 
For some girl crying in her love for sale shoes 
Who? Who is she? She is the blues 
I need to see a friend All I do is wonder. 
All I do is wonder All I do is wonder 
when the hell the thunder will end 
Baby because I am the blues. I am the blues 
Run down the streets of calico 'n Don’t tell the sky, they’re blue 
Just give me who. Who am I? I am the blues. 
I am the blues Baby because I am the blues ‘n I tell myself 
Right on 
Right on 
Right on 
Right on 
Right on 
Woo Right on Right on Blue
Run down the streets of calico 'n 
Don’t tell the sky, they’re blue Just give me who. 
Who am I? I am the blues. I am the blues 
Just a lot of blues, come down on me today.
