Reckless Kelly Waitin’ On The Blues

You never gave a reason for leavin’

Just packed your things and you said goodbye

I guess you just got tired of believin’

In the dreams of a dreamer such as I

Usually I’m not left in this position

Most of the time, it’s me who says goodbye

You never dropped a hint that you’re goin’

Naturally it came as a surprise

Sittin’ in a run-down dive in Austin

Anticipatin’ pain from losin’ you

Well it hasn’t hit me yet

It’ll be here you can bet

I’m sittin’ here

Waitin’ on the blues

I hate to get advice when I don’t ask it

That’s what I’m gettin’ here tonight

The old man says ’cause I’m young I’m foolish

Since he’s old I guess he must be right

He said I should try to forget about you

I know that’s not left for me to choose

Who knows you might come back but until you do

Guess I’ll sit here waitin’ on the blues

Sittin’ in a run-down dive in Austin

This old man’s tellin’ me that I can’t lose

But I guess he’s wrong

’cause I already lost you

Oh I’m sittin’ here

Waitin’ on the blues

Sittin’ in a run down dive in Austin

You left me here with nothing left to lose

Well this delayed misery

You know it’s damn near killin’ me

I could spend a lifetime

Waitin’ on the blues.

I could spend a lifetime

Waitin’ on the blues
