"Sick Man Blues" as written by and Robert Thomas Long....
The darkness hides your eyes,
Though it's not for me to tell
You never treat me kind
You think I'm unwell
It's such a shame
It's such a shame
You tried to give me up and flirted with my time
I guess you broke the promise
You made somewhere down the line
Oh, you're a struggle
Oh, you're a struggle

You paid for all my pills that left me in the past
You were a good girl, honey
You just couldn't make it last

And your love carries the rhinestone of a plague
So bear in mind the lives that you could save

'Cause I'm bound to walk the darkness again
And I'm bound to walk the darkness again

I know I'm not that easy to live with day to day
If you painted your own picture,
Then I'd let you have your say
Yeah, I'm a sinner
Whoa, I'm a sinner

But my love, it sits untainted to the rigors of your stare
There ain't anybody like you
And the fairness of your hair leaves me stranded
It leaves me stranded

This life it's too long, too long for me to keep
You should bear that in mind and try the pain you reap
That you reap
That you reap

And your love carries the rhinestone of a plague
So bear in mind the lives that you could save
Your love carries the rhinestone of a plague
So bear in mind the lives that you could save
That you could save

'Cause I'm bound to walk the darkness again
And I'm bound to walk the darkness again
And I'm bound to walk the darkness again
