  • This worn out old six-string has sure been a good friend
    It's never let me down, when my heart's on the mend
    It's always willing to play one more song
    I feel a sad one coming on

    Some dingy old barroom is where he used to turn
    Till the bottle was empty, man that whisky would burn
    The life of the party, till his friends were all gone
    I feel a sad one comin' on

    Oh, sing me the sad ones, I don't like the fast ones
    Keep pourin' me something real strong
    Oh, I'm drawn to the blue side
    Since the king of broken hearts died
    And I feel a sad one comin' on

    Oh, the love of a woman, it saved Jones' life
    He put down the bottle, and he made her his wife
    He'd tear your heart out, when he sang a song
    And I feel a sad one comin' on

    Oh, sing me the sad ones, I don't like the fast ones
    I can't bear that he's really gone
    Oh, I'm drawn to the blue side
    Since the king of broken hearts died
    And I feel a sad one comin' on
    Oh, I'm drawn to the blue side
    Since the king of broken hearts died
    And I feel a sad one comin' on Writer/s: Vincent Gill
