"Blues Had Been My Handle" as written by and Judy Welden....

Years ago I got me a CB radio
So I'd be safer on the road at night
That's how I came to know a trucker, "Jersey Joe"
The only man to ever treat me right

We agreed to meet at a diner one night
Where Joe pulled out the story of my life
He said, "You've been abused...your handle must be "Blues"
Then six months later, Joe made me his wife

"Blues" had been my handle
'Cause life had served me a handful of strife
"Blues" had been my handle
Then Jersey Joe made me his wife
Yeah, "Blues" had been my handle
'Til true love lit a candle
Now "Joy" is the handle I use

Oh, what fun to see the whole country with my man
I'm by his side on almost every trip
I sing a bluesy song, Joe loves to sing along
So happy that the two of us just click

Blues are now the songs I sing of other folks
'Cause I have filed away my painful past
Joe's brought me so much joy... I'm more than just his toy
Our love's a special one, I know will last


"Jersey Joe" loves "Joy"
And "Joy" loves "Jersey Joe"
Merrily we sing as down the road we go
(Repeat and fade)
