“Saved By The Blues” Lyrics

Well, I woke up one morning
Air was black as ink
My daddy was having himself a little drink
He had deep purple bags
And his eyes were red and weary
I was lookin’ at my future
Man, did it look scary
The colors of your life are something you’ve got to choose
And I am saved by the blues (Saved by the blues)

Well, when I was a young man
The air was bright and rosy
Surrounded by love and always warm and cozy
My life was a rainbow, I was glory bound
But when I lost my greed [???], everything turned around
Now innocence lost is a sad and ugly hue
And I am saved by the blues (Saved by the blues)
Oh, saved (Saved by the blues)

Now some folks say the blues is all “Poor me, poor me”
But it’s about the truth
And the truth shall set you free

Well, I woke up this morning
The air was bright and clear
I had no one to blame for all the doubt and the fear
There’s colors you can change and some you cannot switch
God, grant me the wisdom to know which is which
I got a new step and a brand new pair of shoes
And I am saved by the blues (Saved by the blues)
Oh, I am saved by the blues (Saved, saved by the blues)
Oh, Lord, I’m saved (Saved, saved by the blues)
Oh, God, I’m saved by the blues (Saved, saved by the blues)
