Wedding bells rang out today but not for me
They rang for somebody else in my old used to be
Had to catch a train I couldn't stand the news I'm on a honeymoon with the blues
I thought her invitation was an answer to my note
Saying I was sorry for the unkind words I spoke
But it's just a oneway ticket that I can't refuse to a honeymoon with the blues
So roll on eightwheel driver take me far far away
A thousand miles or more would be just fine
The blues and I are celebratin' our wedding day
And we have no special or particular place in mind
I know that we're not headed for Niagara Falls
But any destination would just lead me to four walls
Well I spend weary nights wearing out my shoes on my honeymoon with the blues
[ ac. Guitar ]
Never thought I'd take this trip without a girl of my dreams
Shoes and drives're what I've had in mind
So Mister Engineer won't you turn on the steam leaving all my dreams away behind
Say porter I'd like to order drinks for two
I know that I'm alone but then that's nothing new
While I'm celebratin' here's a drink for you on my honeymoon with the blues
I'm on a honeymoon with the blues
