Hank Locklin – When The Band Plays The Blues lyrics

Go on tonight to the party with him and while you're dancing so closely with him
Don't let me cross your mind unless you choose
To think of me when the band plays the blues
Listen to the words and to the melody
And they will tell you just exactly how it felt to me
To see you go to the party with him
And know you're dancing right now so close to him
Go on have fun while the beat really moves
But think of me when the band plays the blues
[ guitar ]
Listen to the words...
