Messed Up Everywhere Blues

lyrics

I got the messed up everywhere blues
Every night and every day.
Yes I do have those messed up blues,
And I wish they'd go away.

I met a man, he had the lonesome Tennessee kind.
He was all messed up and hurt.
And I met a man, he had the low-down Memphis kind of blues,
But the kind I have are worse.

I got the messed up everywhere blues
Every night and every day.
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do, yes I do.
And they just won't go away.

When you were a girl, I loved your smooth, smooth skin,
And I praised the author of your eyes.
But you don't love me now, just like you didn't love me then,
And I want to kiss your worry lines.

I got the messed up everywhere blues
Every night and every day.
Yes I do, yes I do, yes I do have those blues.
And they just won't go away.

A while ago, I had those New York City blues.
Right where the Hudson meets the sea.
You know, I barely made it out alive,
Barrelling across the Tappan Zee.

And I've got a hot, hot heart,
Burning like a coal.
And I've got a hot, hot heart.

Jesus, don't you take my song away.
That's one thing I ask of you.
Jesus, won't you let my clumsy fingers play?
You know I only play for you.
