Lyrics:
No matter how I try I just can't shake these blues.
No matter how I try I just can't shake these blues.
They're like a big black crow flyin' after me.
They're tryin' to shake me outa my tree.
They shake me through an' through
But it just don't shake these blues
Seems so hard, nothin' left to fight it.
Seems so easy just to let go.
Seems so dumb to get so excited.
This might be the last "I told you so."
It's like a cautious crap-shoot. I can't win no game.
The dice ain't nice an' they never remember my name.
You can shake 'em an' shoot 'em. You just might win.
Take your money home an' never shoot again.
I shake till I lose,
But I just can't shake these blues.
It's kind of a clue when you finally find me alone.
Just a dark lump of shadow with nobody takin' me home.
The Dark is a demon, it swallows me whole.
The Fear is the shadow that shades my soul
Till I shake in my shoes,But I just can't shake these blues.
I don't b'lieve I'm down 'n this hole again.
I don't believe I lost my way.
I believe I'll sit here tremblin'
Till I shiver and shake my life away....
I been sick in my time. This ain't nothin' new.
It's just worse than the first time, an' it lasts just as long as I do.
I went to my doctor. Just a waste of time.
He gave me a bottle of dope of some kind
That said "Shake 'fore you use."
But it just don't shake my blues.
Seems so hard, nothin' left to fight it.
Seems so easy just to let go.
Seems so dumb to get so excited.
This might be the last "I told you so."
