“Papa Gene’s Blues” Lyrics

Davy: Hey, you notice, the thing about those songs from the sixties, you notice how short they were?

No heartaches felt, no longer lonely
Nights of waiting finally won me
Happiness that’s all rolled up in you
And now with you as inspiration
I look toward a destination
Sunny, bright that once before was blue

I have no more than I did before
But now I’ve got all that I need
’Cause I love you, and I know you love me

So take my hand, I’ll start my journey
Free from all the helpless worry
That besets a man when he’s alone
For strength is mine when we’re together
And with you, I know I’ll never
Have to pass the high road for the low

I have no more than I did before
Now I’ve got all that I need
’Cause I love you, and I know you love me

Davy: Oh, pick it, Luther!
?: Oh, ho!
?: Wee hoo!
[break]

Have no more than I did before
But now I’ve got all that I need
’Cause I love you, and I know you love me
Yes, I love you, and I know you love me

?: Yeah!
