Lyrics

The Blues Came Today
By Leo Rondeau

Here’s to supposing if the world was still frozen
I wouldn’t be the only one who was blue
Hoping for heaven and love never ending
But that’s not what I’m finding in you

And there’s no need to deny it
you’ve been caught red handed
In the dark it all seemed okay
Shame on the sun for rising and shining
And showing the worst of your ways

Chorus
The blues came today and they took me away
They fooled me into thinking they were love
I cried like a baby when they said to me
“Boy we can never give you up”

You’re our little darling now and you’re going home
You’re our little darling now and you’re going home
You’re our little darling now and you’re going home
You’re our little darling now and you’re going home

Now that you’re gone I must press on
All by my lonesome
With a gun on my hip and curl on my lip
And my spurs a jangling

Get on my pony, forget how they warned me
And keep on looking for the sunny side
Set out to fail with the Lord on my trail
And that tricky old Devil on my side

Chorus
