Dad was my hero, God called him away;

Mama was lonely and I was afraid.

With no one to lean on, I turned to the booze;

Hard times come early when you’re born with the blues.

Railroads were leaving, and airplanes were in;

A great war was brewing, about to begin.

Hungry and lonesome, nothing to lose;

Raised in a boxcar and born with the blues.

Born with the Blues, trouble in mind;

Smoking and drinking, by the time I was 9.

In debt from the start, still paying my dues;

Crazy and lonely, and born with the blues.

In spite of the cocaine, in spite of it all,

God gave me a woman to cushion the fall.

You’re like Paul of the Bible: spreading good news.

A man on a journey born with the blues.

Born with the Blues, trouble in mind;

Smoking and drinking, by the time I was 9.

In debt from the start, still paying my dues;

Crazy and lonely, and born with the blues.

Crazy and lonely and born with the blues
