Lonesome And Blue 

Written in November of 1992 in Fort McMurray

Seven in the morning and I wake by the sun
A new day a coming, a new day just begun
Just begun

Lately these days, I’ve been lonely as hell
Ain’t no one gonna help me
If I ain’t gonna help myself
I ain’t willing to help myself

But I had me a girl whose love was so fine
One day she up and left and it just about blew my mind
I didn’t even see the signs

Now I sit here at night cold and alone
Ain’t nothing or no one willing to call me their own
Your picture’s got no problem hanging on my wall
I’m skating on thin ice and I’m just about to fall right through
And I ain’t got the courage to call you
I’m lonesome and blue

Stay with me baby, won’t you stay with me tonight
Stay with me honey, won’t you stay with me
Stay with me tonight
It’s two in the morning, too wired to sleep
A pack of cigarettes and three pots of coffee
Look what’s become of me

But I had me a girl whose love was so fine
I don’t really miss her but I tell you man there’s those times
I can’t get her off my mind

And I sit here at night cold and alone
Ain’t nothing or no one willing to call me their own
Your picture’s got no problem hanging on my wall
I’m skating on thin ice and I’m just about to fall right through
And I ain’t got the courage to call you
I’m lonesome and blue
