​Rex's Blues

This song is by Carrie Rodriguez and appears on the album Love and Circumstance (2010).

Ride the blue wind high and free
She'll lead you down through misery
Leave you low, come, time to go
Alone and low as low can be

If I had a nickel, I'd find a game
If I won a dollar, I'd make it rain
If it rained an ocean, I'd drink it dry
And lay me down dissatisfied
Oh, lay me down dissatisfied

It's legs to walk and thoughts to fly
Eyes to laugh and lips to cry
A restless tongue to classify
All born to grow and grown to die

So tell my baby I said, "So long"
Tell my mother I done no wrong
Tell my brother to watch his own
And tell my friends to mourn me none
Oh, tell my friends to mourn me none

I'm chained upon the face of time
Feelin' full of foolish rhyme
There ain't no dark till something shines
I'm bound to leave this dark behind

So ride the blue wind high and free
She'll lead you down through misery
Leave you low, come, time to go
Alone and low as low can be
Alone and low as low can be
Alone and low as low can be
