Blues Run the Game
Catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues run the game

Send out for whisky baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service, honey
Me and room service, mama
Me and room service, well
We're living a life of sin

When I ain't drinking, baby
You are on my mind
When I ain't sleeping, honey
When I ain't sleeping, mama
When I ain't sleeping, well
You know you'll find me crying

Catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues run the game

Living is a gamble, baby
Loving's much the same
Wherever I have played
Wherever I throw those dice
Wherever I have played
The blues they run the game

Maybe when I'm older, baby
Somewhere down the line
I'll wake up older
So much older, mama
I'll wake up older
And I'll just stop all my trying

So catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same
