​Blues Plus Booze (Means I Lose)

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album All's Fair in Love 'N' War (1966) and on the album The Lonesome in Me (1970).

Just last night my love said she was leaving
I sat right there and cried until the dawn
Then booze was added to the pain and heartbreak
The combination equalled trouble from then on

Blues plus booze means I lose
Not a right combination for anyone to choose
Nobody knows the feeling till he's been in my shoes
Blues plus booze means I lose

Tonight I'm fast forgetting how she left me
But tomorrow pain will come on twice as strong
I order stronger booze and louder music
Like I'm happy for tonight but not for long

Blues plus booze means I lose
Not a right combination for anyone to choose
Nobody knows the feeling till he's been in my shoes
Blues plus booze means I lose
