When The Lady Sings The Blues

Album: Guitar Slinger (2011)
  • When this old world gets the, the best of me
    Life don't come quite so easily
    The only thing that brings a little piece to me
    Is when the lady sings the blues

    The world keeps knocking on my front door
    I just can't see to pay the rent no more
    The one thing that I keep longing for
    Is when the lady sings the blues

    Singing 'bout the hard time, standing in the silver line
    Praying help is on the way
    Feeling kind of helpless, hoping for some kindness
    Waiting on that sunshiny day

    Just when I think I'm gonna, gonna come on wild
    Feels like the walls just start toppling down
    The one thing that keeps me hanging around
    Is when the lady sings the blues

    Singing 'bout the hard time, standing in the silver line
    Praying help is on the way
    Feeling kind of helpless, hoping for some kindness
    Waiting on that sunshiny day

    'Good Morning Heartache' by Lady Day
    'God Bless The Child' who chased my blues away
    And 'Ain't Nobody's Business' gonna get me through
    When the lady sings the blues

    Ain't it nice what a little moonlight can do
    When the lady sings the blues
    When the lady sings the blues
    When the lady sings the blues Writer/s: Pete Wasner, Vincent Grant Gill
