You Can Close Your Eyes

Album: Mud Slide Slim and the Blue Horizon (1971)
  • Well the sun is surely sinking down
    But the moon is slowly rising
    And this old world must still be spinning 'round
    And I still love you

    So close your eyes
    You can close your eyes, it's all right
    I don't know no love songs
    And I can't sing the blues anymore
    But I can sing this song
    And you can sing this song
    When I'm gone

    Well it won't be long before another day
    We're gonna have a good time
    And no one's gonna take that time away
    You can stay as long as you like

    So close your eyes
    You can close your eyes, it's all right
    I don't know no love songs
    And I can't sing the blues anymore
    But I can sing this song
    And you can sing this song
    When I'm gone

    So close your eyes
    You can close your eyes, it's all right
    I don't know no love songs
    And I can't sing the blues anymore
    But I can sing this song
    And you can sing this song
