                                   Intro:
                                   When love gets shook up
                                   and things don't look up,
                                   you better brace up to the part
                                   cause all that you know
                                   about how love goes
                                   comes straight out of the heart.

                                   vs 1
                                   And the blues those lonely love lost blues,
                                   oh they can make the days grow long
                                   when you got a heart that's got no home
                                   and you're left out all alone,
                                   outside the love you always knew.

                                   vs 2
                                   And love such deep and daring love
                                   will drive a normal man insane
                                   when every day is dark with pain
                                   seems there's no sunshine only rain
                                   while I'm still in love with you.

                                   vs 3
                                   And the nights those lonely silent nights
                                   they come to say you're gone
                                   don't know how I can carry on
                                   I can't find out what went wrong
                                   and I'm still in love with you.

                                   vs 4
                                   And this life yeah this only lonely life
                                   is full of sorrow and pain
                                   when the heart gets rearranged
                                   and the blues they seem so strange
                                   while I'm still in love with you.

                                   ending to fade:
                                   Mercy what can a lonely man do
                                   in a big mess with the blues
                                   Yeah, I'm still in love with you.

                                 Eric True


The role of poetry is to utter the un-utterable; to open up
spaces of consciousness and resistance; to language oppressions; to
re-language historie

E-babers ya know Im loving this...
This reads just like a bluesy Van song...
your cadence and melodic gift of rhyme always stand out in your  work...
as does the depth of the emotions.
this is a bittersweet tune here sweet poet-pal ...
one day I just gotta hear ya sing one  
beautiful song Eric, and seeing your name back today makes me smile.
missed your presence of kind here in the forums.

couldn't make up my mind, which verse I like best, so I have to choose all. I hope you won't sing the blues to long.

let our hands communicate what's in our heart. A Wisp of a brush...
