"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
'Cause 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

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

    General CommentPretty self explainatory. Such a sad song, yet beautifully done. People will fail us. I like the fact that the blues are more of a friend than a demon that so many want to make this be.
