Been Down So Long
Richard Evans

I've been down so long
gettin' up is the last thing on my mind
I've been down so long baby
gettin' up is the last thing on my mind
when these blues hit ya' boy
ev'rything else is a waste of time

my baby she left me
she run off with my best friend
my baby she left me
she run off with my best friend
I started drinkin'
I been drinkin' ever since

when these blues hit ya' boy
ev'rything else is a waste of time

when I woke up this mornin'
blues sat on the side of my bed
when I woke up this mornin'
blues sat on the side of my bed
I've been down so long
I might as well be dead
