SIX FOOT BLUE - lyrics

I usually sing the song in the key of C.
I use 9th chords.


Went down to the delta
Try to find me a job
Spent so much time at the smelta
Got to be feeling odd
Someone said, 
"Fella, you know you got no God."

I say, Billy, what you gonna do?
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa whoa John
What you gonna  do? (this line in falsetto)
You got rings around your eyes,
And you're looking six foot blue!

Went down to delta
Try to shovel me some coal
Went down to the smelta
Got to be feeling old
Someone said: "Fella,
You know you got no soul"


Threw down my shovel
Threw down my pick
Picked up my guitar
Learned to lay down some licks
Well, maybe I'm in trouble
But least I'm not feeling sick


(C)2000-2017 by W.G. Milne,

With any luck I'll find an acceptable recording of this
song... and eventually I'll post it here.
