SINGING 'EM BLUE

Unreleased recording

This time I'm paying my dues while everybody's watching
This time I'm rocking the soul of an all-night pain
And this time I'm riding them out and I'm waiting 'em through
But this time I'm singing 'em blue
Singing 'em blue

Sometimes, times just a word when your world stands still
Most times I don't understand it, maybe I never will
But this time I did it for love, and loving is strife
But this time I'm playing for life
Playing for life

Some day a day will come when I finally know which way
To hold on tight while I'm letting go
But meantime, I'll play away by the things I do
And this time I'm singing 'em blue
Singing 'em blue

Iím singing 'em blue
Ah-ah-ah singing 'em blue...
Ah-ah singing 'em blue
Ah-ah-ah singing 'em blue...
Ah-ah-ah, a-ha singing 'em blue...
Ah-ah-ah singing 'em blue...

This time I'm paying my dues while everybody's watching
This time I'm rocking the soul of an all-night pain
And this time I'm riding them out and I'm waiting 'em through
But this time I'm singing 'em...(whistle)
This time I'm singing 'em blue
