lyrics

I’m gonna give up living
after Mardis Gras
Start a fight I can’t win
with the biggest thug in the bar

You gonna cry for me? you gonna cry for me?
Sweet blue, you gonna cry sweet blue tears?

Ain’t gonna listen to nothin
that nobody says
Drink a bucket of whiskey
Put rocks in my bed.

You gonna cry for me? you gonna cry for me?
Sweet blue, you gonna cry?
Sweet blue, you gonna cry?
sweet blue tears.

Get some barbed
Wrap it round my legs
Get some rusty nails
Stick em in my head

You gonna cry for me? you gonna cry for me?
Sweet blue, you gonna cry?
Sweet blue, you gonna cry?
sweet blue tears.

Dump a box bullets
In my favorite drink
I’m gonna drink it slow
I’m gonna sit here and think.
