Sandy Denny – Blues Run The Game lyrics

Lyrics (sandy denny version)

Catch a boat to england baby
Maybe to spain
Whereever I have gone
Whereever I've been and gone
Whereever I have gone
The blues are all the same

Send out for whisky baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service honey
Me and room service babe
Me and room service
We're living a life of sin

When I'm not drinking baby
You're on my mind
When I'm not sleeping honey
When I'm not sleeping honey
When I'm not sleeping
Well you know you find me crying

Maybe tomorrow baby
Some place down the line
I'll wake up older
So much older honey
I'll wake up older
And I'll just stop all my trying

Living is a gamble baby
Loving's much the same
Whereever I have gone
Whereever I've been and gone
Whereever I have gone
The blues have run the game

(repeat first verse)

Lyrics (jackson C. Frank version)

Catch a boat to england baby
Maybe to spain
Whereever I have gone
Whereever I've been and gone
Whereever I have gone
The blues are all the same

Send out for whisky baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service honey
Me and room service babe
Me and room service, well
We're living a life of sin

When I'm not drinking baby
You are on my mind
When I'm not sleeping honey
When I ain't sleeping mama
When I'm not sleeping
You know you find me crying

Try another city baby
Another town
Whereever I have gone
Whereever I've been and gone
Whereever I have gone
The blues come following down

Living is a gamble baby
Loving's much the same
Whereever I have played
Whenever I've thrown them dice
Whereever I have played
The blues have run the game

Maybe tomorrow honey
Some place down the line
I'll wake up older
So much older mama
I'll wake up older
And I'll just stop all my trying

(repeat first verse)
