He's just a singer, a natural born guitar ringer
Kind of a clinger to sad old songs
He's not a walk behinder, he's a new note finder
But his name's a reminder of a blues man that's already gone
So he started drinkin' Took some things that messed up his thinkin'
He was sure sinkin' when she came along
He was alone in the spotlight, Not too much left in sight
She changed all that one night When she sang him this song

   Hey baby I love you, Hey baby I need you
   Hey baby you ain't got to prove to me
   You're some kind of macho man
   You've wasted so much of your live
   Runnin' through the dark nights
   Let me shine a little love light Down on that blues man

He got so sick from speedin'
All the things they said he was needin'
If he was to keep on pleasin' all of his fans
He got cuffed on dirt roads He got sued over no shows
She came and took all that old load
Down off that blues man,  and he sang

   Hey baby I love you too, Hey baby I need you
   Hey baby I do get tired of this travellin' band
   I'm over 40 years old now, nights would be cold now
   If you hadn't stuck it out with this blues man
   He's over 40 years old now, nights would be so cold now
   If she hadn't hung around with that blues man
