Learning the Blues Lyrics

(Delores J Silver)

The tables are empty,
The dance floor deserted,
You play the same love song,
It's the tenth time you've heard it.
That's the beginning, just one of the clues,
You've had your first lesson
In learnin' the blues.

The cigarettes you light
One after the other,
Won't help you forget him
When you're losing your lover.
You're only burning a torch you can't lose.
But you're on the right track,
For learnin' the blues.

When you're out in a crowd
The blues will taunt you constantly,
When you're out in a crowd
The blues will haunt your memory.

The nights when you don't sleep,
The whole night you're cryin',
But you cannot forget him,
Soon you even stop tryin',
You'll walk the floor,
And wear out your shoes,
When you feel your heart break
You're learnin' the blues
