The Blues Come Around

print

Once I was happy as I could be
But I let a gal make a fool of me
And ever since she let me down
The blues come around when the sun goes down.

   Oh the blues come around
   Oh the blues come around
   Lord the blues come around
   Every evening when the sun goes down.

As long as the sun is in the sky
These dog-gone blues never make me cry
But ever since she left this town
The blues come around when the sun goes down.

I built my castles very high
And then she went and said good-bye
And ever since she tore ’em down
The blues come around when the sun goes down.

Once she called me all her own
But now she’s gone and I’m alone
And every evening I’m sorrow bound
‘Cuz the blues come around when the sun goes down.
