Standard (EADGBE)

As I stand by your flame,

I get burned once again

Feelin' low down, I'm blue

As I sit, by the fire,

of your warm desire

I've got the blues, for you, yeah

Every night you've been away,

I've sat down and I have prayed

That you're safe in the arms of a guy,

who will bring you alive

Won't drag you down with abuse


In the silk sheet of time,

I will find peace of mind

Love is a bed full of blues

And I've got the blues

And I've got the blues

And I'll bust my brains out for you

And I'll tear my hair out

I'm gonna tear my hair out just for you

If you don't believe what I'm singing

At three o'clock in the morning, babe, well

I'm singing my song for you . .
