lyrics

There are no blues that you can't handle
there's still mysteries for sure
but there are no women in the lobby
and no children by the door
There are no blues I heard you say
there are no blues that haunt my days
there are no blues there are no blues

The sister of my mother was born some years ago
in Hackensack, New Jersey it was blanketed with snow
and the father of our country he stacked up all his bills
and his children can't remember who he killed
The land of his dominion was shaped by human hand
but in the rotten stumps they left behind the bees and mushrooms stand
and as I walked the edges the guards said hold on
there are no blues there are no blues

There are no blues that you can't handle
there's still mysteries for sure
but there are no women in the lobby
and no children by the door
There are no blues I heard you say
there are no blues that haunt my days
there are no blues there are no blues

I used to sit and mourn for all the things I left behind
and answer all the questions from each corner of my mind
The dance that I was doing was torture on my knees
but my own self was deaf to my own pleas
Now listen to me closely while I tell you what I know
it's nothing but a couple words I heard a long time ago
from my buddy when his bloody face was soaked in filth and booze
there are no blues there are no blues

There are no blues that you can't handle
there's still mysteries for sure
but there are no women in the lobby
and no children by the door
There are no blues I heard you say
there are no blues that haunt my days
there are no blues there are no blues
