Listen my children feel my children, cry the blues

Daddy taught her right from wrong
Taught her how to drink and cry a song

In my mind all I see is havens
In her heart we sing a bout liven
Turns take the wait it is blue

Fingers at the ready sing for me a lie
Each of the ladies would like a try

Sing me a song in the wine
Shallow freed in a darker time
Skip the blues a hammer down
She left him in the death town

Drank his whiskey down left the memory
Silver paid for the price she just a cry

We sing a tribute to his bliss
The angel morning drunken kiss
Love is the reason for the season
Just can not find the core belief
Each just a step from understand

Lady picks the gambler pocket every time
Heart left on his nightstand hears her sigh

Can not find self-help for me please
Any more does not matter right or wrong
Lost in his sweet dying song of repent
She leaves him tenth time spent again
Make-believe is just another reason to cry
Ready he says as ready as you she lies

In the velvet of a screaming morning star
All the feeling in her cry is to die for

Each step to the ledge of life to laugh
It's over-blown nobody jumps
Sweet dreams with prayers
Lead me to the place of rest
Sleep results from work
Keep the love word in confess

Each day lived brings a new baby at her breast
Daddy was always right life is a test of the blues
