Blue to the bone

Nights pass without number

Days pass without name

Dark clouds shake with thunder

The skies pour with rain

My maker disowned me

I swapped love for gold

Greed led me to hunger

Left me blue to the bone


My Cadillac's weary

It gave up the ghost

On gasoline ally

A cloud of black smoke

No fixin' the motor

Had to get it towed home

One thing after another

Left me blue to the bone


Bad news in the tea leaves

Confliction and gloom

Even worse in the heavens

Astrological doom

I'm down on my leather

I've lost all I own

My life's done a runner

Left me blue to the bone
