Just when every ray of hope was gone
I should have known that you would come along
I can’t believe I ever doubted you
My old friend the blues

Another lonely night, a nameless town
If sleep don’t take me first, you’ll come around
’Cause I know I can always count on you
My old friend the blues

Lovers leave and friends will let you down
But you’re the only sure thing that I’ve found
No matter what I do I’ll never lose
My old friend the blues

Just let me hide my weary heart in you
My old friend the blues

man! Didja ever read a lyric and think: "I should've written that!"

This is one of those times for me.

Simple and elegant and says something. I like.

I, still, like the views said...

so that's a Van Morrison album and a Proclaimers album for you then!

:-)
