I don't need to rehearse no blues
Ain't no need, I got you
I got you and a weight on my back
Hitting harder than John Henry's hammer on a rail road track
I don't need to rehearse no blues

I need another high noon
Aint no need, I got you
I’m shot down and now I lay
Moulderin' like John Browns body in its grave
I don't need another high noon

Can't you feel it  baby
Can't you feel
What heart did you steal baby
Can't you feel

Ain't no fun, nothing's right
Nothing but the blues in plain sight
They were wrong when they said love has no pride
Love wails like John Riley’s woman in the morning light
Ain't no fun nothings right
