From the album Injection of the Blues

Lyrics

My soul needs an injection of a serum called the blues
Eyes to cold to cry with and a heart I cannot use
I laid it out to Jesus just to get it off my chest
Now he's takin' to the bottle, cuz he got so damned depressed

Now I'm runnin' from the devil
And I'm a runnin' out of time
You say your heart is broken - so is mine

My baby says she loves me
But you know she'll soon be gone
When the party's almost over
And the midnight's turned to dawn
She'll settle for a rich man
She know's will treat her right
But she'll think of me when she's crazy
In the middle of the night

Now I'm runnin' from the devil
And I'm a runnin' out of time
You say your heart is broken - well so is mine

Well I've been to old Kentucky
And I've been to San Antone
And I've sang the blues for thousands
But mostly all alone

Well I'm drinking down your freedom
And I'm a living on your lie
Tell me to work a little harder
As you look me in the eye
