Learnin’ the Blues

Writer(s): Delores Vicki Silvers

The tables are empty – the dance floor’s deserted
You play the same love song – it’s the tenth time you’ve heard it
That’s the beginning – just one of the clues
You’ve had your first lesson – in learnin’ the blues
The cigarettes you light – one after another
Won’t help you forget her – and the way that you love her
You’re only burning – a torch you can’t lose
But you’re on the right track – for learnin’ the blues
When you’re at home alone, the blues will taunt you – constantly
When you’re out in a crowd, the blues will haunt your memory
The nights when you don’t sleep – the whole night you’re crying
You just can’t forget her – soon you even stop trying
You’ll walk the floor – and wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break – you’re learnin’ the (those) blues
