The tables are empty - the dance floor's deserted;
You play the same love song - it's the tenth time you've heard it.
That's the beginning just one of the clues;
You've had your first lesson - in learnin' the blues.

The cigarettes you light - one after another
Won't help you forget her and the way that you love her.
You're only burnin' a torch you can't lose,
But you're on the right track for learnin' the blues.

(Bridge:)
When you're at home alone, 
The blues will taunt you constantly;
When you're out in a crowd, 
The blues will haunt your memory.

The nights when you don't sleep the whole night you're cryin',
But you can't forget her - soon you even stop tryin'.
You'll walk that floor and wear out your shoes;
When you feel your heart break. you're learnin' the blues.

(Repeat Bridge)

The nights when you don't sleep the whole night you're cryin';
But you can't forget her - soon you even stop tryin'.
You'll walk that floor and wear out your shoes;
When you feel your heart break, you're learnin' the blues.

(Coda:)
When you feel your heart break, you're learnin' the blues.
