Johnny Cash - Home Of The Blues Lyrics

 

Just around the corner there's heartache

Down the street that losers use

If you can wade in through the teardrops

You'll find me at the Home of the Blues

I walk and cry while my heartbeat

Keeps time with the drag of my shoes

The sun never shines through this window of mine

It's dark at the Home of the Blues

Oh, but the place is filled with the sweetest mem'ries

Memories so sweet that I cry

Dreams that I've had left me feeling so bad

I just want to give up and lay down and die

So if you've just lost your sweetheart

And it seems there's no good way to choose

Come along with me, misery loves company

You're welcome at the Home of the Blues

Just around the corner there's heartache

Down the street that losers use

If you can wade in through the teardrops

You'll find me at the Home of the Blues

Yeah, you're gonna find me at the Home of the Blues
