"Joe Tex, These Taming Blues" as written by and Matthew Houck....
Is it ever gonna not be so hard to see you around?
Am I really really really really gonna have to really gonna have to really have to leave town?

I mean I called upon a bunch of angels calling angels ain't you supposed to come and take away these blues?

I mean we came upon a bunch of rabies and there is nothing all us little animals can do.

All five kinds of rains
All nine kinds of thunder and
Eighteen white horses who will not ever come to me!

Don't plant your feet, love, in that garden of blame.
Don't break me no more, love.
I'm already tame.

Is it ever gonna stop this trouble of just being around my friend?
Am I really really really really gonna have to really gonna have to really have to leave town again?

I mean I lay myself upon the water calling water ain't you supposed to come and save us all from all these flames?
I mean we're caught among the awful branches and you know they're burning us and yes they're burning all of us's names.

And I stood on the shore.
All wilted and wondering,
"Ain't you got nobody, ain't you still sweet tonight?"

So don't plant no more feet, love, in that forest of blame.
Don't break me no more, love.
I'm already tame.

(Hey there!)

    General Commentthe mood of this song is so beautiful....

    this is from the website:

    is it ever gonna not
    be so awful hard to see you around
    am i really gonna have to really have to leave town
    i mean i called upon a bunch of angels
    calling "angels, aint you supposed to come and take away these blues?
    i mean we've came upon a bunch of rabies
    and there isn't nothing all us little animals can do
    with all five kinds of reins and all nine kinds of thunderings
    or eighteen white horses if won't none of them come to me"

    don't plant no more feet, love, in that garden of blame
    don't break me no more, love, i'm already tame

    is it ever gonna stop
    this trouble of just being around my friends
    am i really gonna have to really have to leave town again
    i mean, i layed myself upon the water
    calling 'water ain't you supposed to come and save us all from all these flames
    i mean we're caught among the awful branches
    and you know theyre burning us and yes, theyre learning all of us's names
    i mean i stood your shore all wilted and wondering
    aint you got a home for me, aint you still sweet for me'

    don't plant no more feet love in that forest of blame
    don't break me no more love i'm already tame
