By townes van zandt

Blue wind's blown my dreams away
My darling's flown and she's gone to stay
All I got now is yesterday
And I don't know what to do


I guess I'll go downtown and see
Just what downtown can do for me
Maybe set my lonesome free
Or maybe let me go


I loved her true and I told her so
I ask her too and she told me no
She said she had somewhere to go
And then she said good-bye


I wonder how long it can go on
How long I'll sing this same old song
I wonder which one done us wrong
Which one forgot to try


I loved her true and I told her so
I ask her too and she told me no
She said she had somewhere to go
And then she said good-bye
