Rex's Blues

	  		E                  A        E 
Ride the blue wind high and free 
E                       A   E 
She'll lead you down to misery 
E              A            E     
Leave you low, come time to go 
 E        A              E    
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 
 
Tell my Sister I said so long 
Tell my mother I did no wrong 
Tell my brother to watch his own 
Tell my friends to mourn me none 
 
Solo 
 
Accordion solo 
 
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 
 
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 
 
 
Ride the blue wind high and free 
It'll lead you down through misery 
Leave you low, come time to go 
Alone and low as low can be
