Doyle Lawson – When The Blues Are Movin' In lyrics

In the quiet of the evening
I sing a mournful song
As the night wind blows a low lonesome moan
Oh she left without a warning
My world came tumbling down
Our love ended with the sad heartbreakin' sound

Now the blues are movin' in
I can't help the way I feel
What an awful price for love I've had to pay
Never thought I'd see the day
She'd just up and run away
What a cold world, when the blues are movin' in

I heard her walk across the floor
Heard the closing of the door
And the sound of silence cut me like a knife
She was all that I lived for
And I'll never love again
It's a cold world, when the blues are movin' in
