​Velvet Guitar

This song is by Alejandro Escovedo and appears on the album A Man Under The Influence (2001).

My hands are turning numb
But I still gotta strum
My Velvet guitar
And I don't care how long
Might write a sad one
But who's gonna sing them this time.

My hands are turning numb
But I still gotta strum
My Velvet guitar
And I don't care how long
Exactly what went wrong
But who's gonna blame him
This time -----

A rooster's in the trees
But he can't crow for me
He's wasted his time
He lost track of how long
Exactly what went wrong
But who's gonna blame him
This time?

I hear her sing for me
But she won't cry for me
I'm wasted, inside -----
She's too cool to come down
And dance to a sad one
But who's gonna blame her this
Time ----------.

Not gonna break him down.
