"My Old Friend The Blues" as written by and Steve Earle....
Just when every ray of hope was gone
I should have known that you would come along
I can't believe I ever doubted you
My old friend the blues
Another lonely night, a nameless town
If sleep don't take me first, you'll come around
I know I can always count on you
My old friend the blues

Lovers leave and friends will let you down
But you're the only sure thing that I've found
No matter what I do I'll never lose
My old friend the blues

Lovers leave and friends will let you down
But you're the only sure thing that I've found
No matter what I do I'll never lose
My old friend the blues

Just let me hide my weary heart in you
My old friend the blues

    General CommentSometimes in life there is only one thing you can count on.. a little old fashione depression.

    The lyrics are simple but the song is great. Check out the version of this on "Together at the Bluebird Cafe" and all the songs on that album. (also has awesome songs by Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt)
