Tender Lady Blues

By Andy Copeland

 

 

Lonesome baby

I know where you’re from

I’ve been on that hill

From where you’ve come

I’ve heard the stories

I know what you’ve done

 

Tender lady

Won’t you take my hand?

I’m fed up with this town

I know you understand

We can escape this

I’ve got a plan

 

Oh Lord have mercy

Have mercy on my soul

It took me too long

It’s time for me to go

It’s been so fun, woman

I don’t think you know

 

Oh now forget me

Forget me and all I’ve done

You know I’ve been so evil

But I’m not the only one

You know I’m just one of these people

Living under this miserable sun

One Man

By Andy Copeland

 

 

I sleep, the world is turning

I wake, my mind is burning

Through my life I’m always learning

Don’t follow every yearning

 

I’ve almost seen Satan’s face

And I heard all ’bout Jesus’s grace

I’ve been everywhere between, seen

All the sights that can be seen and

 

I can tell you not to follow

Everyone’s advice

‘Cuz no one thinks

Twice

 

I’m in the world around me

The sights and sounds surrounding

Did you hear the music sounding?

I can feel my heart a-pounding and

 

I just know I need a fix

I throw it into my daily mix

My mamma taught me right from wrong but

Here I am, singing this song and

 

I just don’t know where I’m gonna go

But it ain’t too good and that’s for sho’

Ain’t too many roads for me to take; and

I don’t know how far one man can make
