Ever since I lost you, baby
I've been here and there
Lookin' for some peace of mind
Can't find it anywhere
I went down to Tunica
Played me a little blackjack
Saw a wino on the corner
Gave my winnings back

[Chorus:]
If it was just money, baby
I could make it
But living without you
Can I take it?
All I see ahead of me
Is just melancholy blue
'Cause I ain't got no future
Without you

I went down to Austin
Lots of beautiful people there
Could have had a better adventure
I just didn't care
Got a job in California
They sure liked my style
But there's somethin' 'bout that California sun
Reminds me of your smile

[Repeat chorus]

Now and then, I go back to Biloxi
Whenever I feel brave
Visit that little country church down there
Lay some flowers on your grave
You sure got a hold on me
I don't know what to do
I ain't got no future
I can't see my future
Without you
