(Jackson C. Frank)

Catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone, the blues run the game
Send out for whiskey, baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service, baby
Me and room service, honey
Me and room service, well we're living like a sin
When I'm not drinking, baby
You are on my mind
When I'm not sleeping
When I'm not sleeping
When I'm not sleeping, well you know, you`ll find me crying
[*this section came from the Nick Drake site, though it was not performed by Mark
Try another city, baby
Try another town
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone, the blues run the game
Well maybe someday, baby
Somewhere down the line
I`ll wake up older, honey
So much older I`ll wake up older and just stop all my trying*]
Living is a gamble baby
Loving's much the same
Where ever I have gone
Where ever I've been and gone
Where ever I have gone
The blues have run the game
Catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone, the blues run the game
