Sorrow Call My Name

Old Man Sorrow follow me around
Gonna take my troubles all the way downtown
Go to the waterfront and lay my troubles down.

Blues man, play me a soulful refrain
Blues man give me a cure for sorrow’s pain
Play so loud I never hear Sorrow call my name.

Blues ring out and they’re fit to wake the dead
Red dust blowing and red clouds overhead
Old Man River, now he calls my name instead.

Old Man Sorrow, come and take my hand
Slow-dance with me to the music of the band
When I tell you all my troubles I know you’ll understand.

Available! High-Voltage Lines, Knocking from Inside
