Song Description

The Blues don't take no prisioners.

Story Behind the Song

Stevie DuPree woke up one Sunday morning with a heavy heart, indigestion and an ugly yellow tinge on the horizon. It had to be the Blues.

Lyrics

YELLOW SKY BLUES



Well, I woke up this morning looking out at a Yellow Sky
Woke up this morning looking out at a Yellow Sky
It?s almost enough to make a poor man moan and cry

Start off the day with the Captain on my back
I start off the day with the Captain on my back
It?s almost enough to give a poor man a heart attack

The Blues don?t take no prisoners and the Blues ain?t got no friends
They come on without no warning every now and then
They will leave you with a heavy heart and all alone again
Cause the Blues don?t take no prisoners and they sure ain?t got no friends


I?m broker than a Cane Back chair left in the rain
Yeah, I?m broker than a Cane Back chair left on out in the rain
Lord, it?s almost enough to make a poor man go insane

My woman done left me for a sho-nuff Youngish Man
Yeah, my woman done left me for a sho-nuff Youngish Man
If that don?t give you the Blues, I don?t know what else can

The Blues don?t take no prisoners and the Blues ain?t got no friends
They tend to come on without no warning every now and then
And then leave you with a heavy heart and all alone again
Cause the Blues don?t take no prisoners and they sure ain?t got no friends
