Lyrics Shot Gun Blues

Every night I go to sleep
The blues fall down like rain
Every night I go to sleep
The blues fall down like rain
Taking pills and cheap whiskey
Just to try to ease the pain
Well, it's hard to gamble
When you lose every bet
Hard to save money when you're twenty years in debt
The blues is falling
Falling down on me like rain
I'm gonna take a shotgun, now people and disconnect my brain
Matt guitar Murphy
I, I made some mistakes
Had some bad breaks
Now my mind don't work and my whole body aches
Blues is falling
Falling down on me like rain
My life is like water just swirling down the drain
Well I tried standin' up
I keep on falling down
Tried standing up keep on fallin' down
Everywhere I go the blues is all around
