I keep the radio on most all night long and listen to the songs they play
Sometimes I hum tap along with my thumb listen to the words they say
And I have to admit those yesterday hits take me back a year or two
I get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues for you
Get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues
And I need help when I hear No Help Wanted
Rememberin' where we first heard Lovesick Blues
Old songs make me wonder what you're doing
I get those 1953 Dear John Honky Tonk Blues
[ trumpet ]
Gonna play this song for Rollin' John the Wild Side Of Life
It's Rolly Polly a golden oldie for Carl and his brand new wife
Well it makes me feel sad but it ain't half bad remembering the things I'd do
I get those 1953 Hey Joe Hop A Bop Blues for you
Get those 1953 Hey Joe Hop A Bop Blues for you
And I need help...
