​Almost Hear The Blues

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album Help Stamp Out Loneliness (1967) and on the album Nothing Takes the Place of Loving You (1968).

The night winds whispers softly why did you do her wrong
In the distance there's a coyote hound sounds like his love is gone
My heart is chilled by whipporwill as the train pulls out with you
Listen close and you can almost hear the blues

You can almost hear the blues in the rain that's pouring down
That lovely crackle to the fire seems to have a lonesome sound
As I walk the time away just listen to my shoes
Listen close and you can almost hear the blues

The rumble of the river flowing by my cabin door
I could swear I heard it tell me, "Son, she won't be back no more"
As the night wind whines a coyote pines, my heart cries out for you
Listen close and you can almost hear the blues

You can almost hear the blues in the rain that's pouring down
That lovely crackle to the fire seems to have a lonesome sound
As I walk the time away just listen to my shoes
Listen close and you can almost hear the blues
Listen close and you can almost hear the blues
