“Some of Shelly’s Blues” Lyrics

Tell me just one more time the reasons why you must leave
Tell me once more why you’re sure you don’t need me
Oh, tell me again, but don’t think that you’ll convince me

Now you’ve said before fallin’ in love again, you’d rather be dead
’Cause when someone breaks your heart, you cry your eyes red
But there’s nothin’ so hard about the life that you’ve led

As far as I can see, there’s no reason for goodbyes
You’re just runnin’ scared, and that’s something I won’t buy

So you lose, I won’t let you go with nothin’ to show but more blues
And all this talk about leavin’ is strictly bad news
So you settle down and stay with the man that loves you

[break]

As far as I can see, there’s no reason for goodbyes
You’re just runnin’ scared, and that’s something I won’t buy

So you lose, I won’t let you go with nothin’ to show but more blues
And all this talk about leavin’ is strictly bad news
So you settle down and stay with the man that loves you, oh
Yes, you settle down and stay with the man that loves you, oh
Yes, you settle down, stay with the man that loves you, oh
Yes, you settle down and stay with me

Mike: Thank you!
