Once You're Past the Blues

This song is by Willie Nelson and appears on the album Six Hours at Pedernales (1995).

I told myself I needed the blues
Like I need a loaded pistol at my hip
But the blues help me to get over you
And now I'm seeing blue skies up ahead

Sometimes the blues are necessary
Though they're quite a load to carry
When the nights are long and weary
And your heart is torn in two

I couldn't take what you were giving
I thought that I was tired of living
Life gets better once you're past the blues

I'm not recommending the blues
I'm just saying how they work for me
Anyway what is there left to lose
Except what little's left of sanity

Sometimes the blues are necessary
Though they're quite a load to carry
When the night is long and weary
And your heart is torn in two

I couldn't take what you were givin'
Thought that I was tired of living
Life gets better once you're past the blues
Life gets better once you're past the blues
