He's just a singer, a natural born guitar ringer
Kind of a clinger, to sad old songs
He's not a walk-behinder, he's a new note finder
His name's a reminder, of a blues man that's already gone

So he started drinkin', and took some things that messed up his thinkin'
He was sure sinkin', when she came along
He was alone in the spot light, not to much left inside
She changed all that one nigh, when she sang him this song

Hey baby I love you, hey baby I need you
Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me you're some kind of macho man
You've wasted so much of your life, runnin' through the dark nights
Let me shine a little love light, down on that blues man

He got so sick from speed 'n, all the things hey said he was needin'
If he was to keep on pleasin', all of his fans
He got cuffed on dirt roads, he got sued over no shows
She came and took all that old load, down off of that blues man, and he sang

Hey baby I love you too, hey baby I need you
Hey baby I do get tired, of this travelin' band
I'm over 40 years old now, nights would be cold now
If you hadn't stuck it out, with this blues man

He's over 40 years old now, nights would be so cold now
If she hadn't hung around, with that blues man
