Lyrics

MORE BLUES THAN I CAN USE
Mark Patterson © 2018

The big boss slipped me my pink slip
Just in time for the holidays
Now here I am drinking and thinking
It was cheaper than giving me my raise
Well go ahead and cut me loose
I'm used to the abuse
But that's more blues than I can use

My paramour gave me the heave-ho
She took the flat screen and the pooch
She says I failed to meet her expectations
But she ran out right after the hooch
Wasn't too hard to deduce
It was just a thin excuse
To pile on more blues than I can use

Well she's gone and she took her lovin' cup
The worst part is I'm gonna miss that pup
If I could afford a phone I wouldn't answer it - I can't take the news
I've already got more blues than I can use

Robert Johnson taught me a secret
The more misery the better the song
Well then I should be swimming in Grammys
'Cause I'm wading in it all day long
No I don't need a muse
To keep me enthused
I've got more blues than I can use

So somebody play some Willie Dixon
Muddy Waters or one of the Kings
If I can't drown 'em I'll soak my sorrows
If you'd be kind enough to pay for the drinks
You know I don't mind paying dues
But I wasn't born to lose
I've just got more blues than I can use
Yeah I've got more blues than I can use
Oh baby I've got more blues than I can use
