The Blues Is Just A Bad Dream - 2010 - Remaster - Lyrics

A tree grows in my back yard
It only grows at night
Its branches, they're all twisted
Its leaves are afraid of light
They say them blues is just a bad dream
They say it lives upside your head
But when it's lonely in the morning
You're bound to wish that you was lying dead

There's winds out on the ocean
They're blowing just as they choose
But them winds ain't got no emotion, babe
They don't know the blues
They say them blues is just a bad dream
They say it lives upside your head
But when it's lone, lonely in the morning
You're bound to wish that you was lying dead

Mind's rambling and rambling
Just like some rolling stone, no
Since that nightmare come to stay with me, babe
My thoughts just don't belong
They say them blues is just a bad dream, babe
They say it lives upside your head, hey, hey
But when they visit you around midnight
You're bound to wish that you were lying dead
