Walkin' on the shore
Feelin' mighty bad
These have been the worst
Ol' blues I ever had
So far
Since you've gone
So far...

Clouds around my brain
How can I drain
These Gulf Coast Blues away

Talkin' to myself
Tellin' me lies
Wonderin' if the tide
Will ever rise
Again
Since you've gone
Again...

Clouds around my brain
How can I drain
These Gulf Coast Blues away

Ships a comin' in
Fog around the shore
Wonderin' if you'll be
Waitin' at my door
Tonight
Oh Lord
Tonight...

Clouds around my brain
How can I drain
These Gulf Coast Blues away

IF Love is an Ocean where all the Rivers End
Blues must be the feelin' while you're waitin' for the Wind
