Jerry Jeff Walker

Away back down the line you slipped and fell behind
And you never got back up, you never went on
But your head looked back at what you lost
If you could turn your head around it would help a lot

But there you sit with the blues on your mind
It keeps you stumblin' all the time
If only you could get together more often
Get together with yourself for real
Instead of just goofin'
So that everything you do you're into it all by yourself
But there you sit with the blues in your mind

Waitin' for somebody to say you're right
Tryin' to find somebody to take your life
You stepped outside and you were feelin' fine
There's new things you must do
But all those people make it hard to know who you are
And they're bound that they should say what you should do
And there you sit with the blues in your mind
That keeps you stumblin' all the time
If only you could get together more often
Get together with yourself for real
Instead of just goofin'
So that everything you do you're into it all by yourself
But there you sit with the blues in your mind

Waitin' for somebody to say you're right
Tryin' to find somebody to take your life
