You Can't Buy Your Way Out Of The Blues

This song is by George Strait and appears on the album Ocean Front Property (1987).

I'd been workin' at forgettin'
Since you said goodbye,
Lookin' for some good times,
The best money can buy.
But it's a bad investment,
There's no long term dividends.
You can't buy happiness
Or heal a heart that just won't mend.

I never thought that I'd be missin' you this way.
I should've paid you more attention,
But now it's too late.
You can buy a night out on the town,
You can buy a loveboat cruise,
But you can't buy your way out of the blues.

No, you can't buy your way out of the blues.
You can spend your fool self silly,
But your money's all you lose.
Love luck just can't be
Bought and paid for and that's the truth.
No, you can't buy your way out of the blues.

My pocketbook is empty,
But I'm still feelin' bad.
I might as well admit it-
You're the last good time I had.
It's been a high-priced lesson,
I can't justify the cost.
I tried buying off your memory,
But it's all in vain because

I never thought that I'd be missin' you this way.
I should've paid you more attention,
But now it's too late.
You can buy a night out on the town,
You can buy a loveboat cruise,
But you can't buy your way out of the blues.

No, you can't buy your way out of the blues.
You can spend your fool self silly,
But your money's all you lose.
Love luck just can't be
Bought and paid for and that's the truth.
No, you can't buy your way out of the blues.

Love luck just can't be bought
And paid for and that's the truth.
No. you can't buy your way out of the blues...
