you ain’t nothin but the blues

i want to blow sweet and cool these horn words
i want to blow on rainy street corner nights a long sweet solo
i want to howl my blues mojo and juju rage against the sky
i want to turn the night insane call out to you on the lonely avenues
cryin baby baby baby baby baby i’m a fool
i’m a fool i’m a fool i’m a fool i’m a fool what’s a fool to do
i’m a fool for you i’m a fool for you you ain’t nothin but the blues
let me wail let me moan let me be a train whistle coming out of the night
let me bring the storm let me be the lightning that flashes
out of the corner of your eye let me be the thunder’s roar
let me call out to you let me rage against the sky
let me improvise with my night eyes a solo of shadows
a solo of mirrors a solo of candles a solo of bones
let me blow in the alley of my soul a long sweet solo
let me blow in the nightstreets of my bones sweet and cool
let me blow in the backstreets of my blood a raging blues
you ain’t nothin but the blues you ain’t nothin but the blues
you ain’t nothin but the blue blue blue blue blues
i want to howl in the junkyards i want to howl in the graveyards
i want to howl my blues in the salvage yards i want to howl my
blues in the trainyards i want to howl my blues in the steelyards
i want to howl my blues mojo and juju i want to howl my blues
by the gasoline pumps and i want to howl my blues by old filling stations
and i want to howl my blues by abandoned motels and i want to howl my
blues down by the river and i want to howl my blues in phantom canyons
you you you you you you you you you ain’t nothin but the
blue blue blue blue blue blues and i want to howl for the blue moon
and i want to howl for the shooting stars and i want to howl for the
constellations and i want to howl for the meteors streaking across the sky
i want to bring the sky inside i want to bring the sky inside
i want to stain constellations with the blood of my fire
i want to leak shooting stars from my eyes
i wanta dig way down deep inside i wanta dig way down deep inside
when there ain’t nothin left to hide i wanta dig way down deep inside
deeper into the darkness deeper into the blackness deeper into the night
deeper into the night deeper into the night
let me howl my blues, baby, let me howl my blues
let me rage against the sky let me turn the night insane
in the crazy darkness let me rage let me sing let me cry
what’s a fool to do what’s a fool to do
in the streets at night let me wail let me moan let me whine
i’m a fool for you i’m a fool for you
you ain’t nothin but the blues you ain’t nothin but the blues
you ain’t nothin but the blue blue blue blue blues
