I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it you
Can never understand.
So many times I thought
About it
And now I know just
What it means to be a
Man.
Everyday I realize you
Can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cos I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I
Choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the
Shadow of the blues.
All of my life I've had a
Strange reputation,
I've been the black
Sheep of the family all
Along.
I never know if in my
Heart I'm really guilty
But, I've been accused
Of never knowing right
From wrong.
Everyday I realize you
Can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cos I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I
Choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the
Shadow of the blues.
My father said you're
Crazy,
He said what you gonna
Do.
I left with my guitar and
Said
I'll leave it up to you.
I'm gonna live the life I
Love
And live the life I
Choose,
And I'm walking in the
Shadow of the blues.
(Solo)
Everyday of my life.
I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it I will
Tell you once again.
All of my life I've been
Caught up in a crossfire,
'Cos I've been branded
With the devil mark of
Cain.
Everyday I realize you
Can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cos I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I
Choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the
Shadow of the blues
