Willie Nelson Once You're Past The Blues Lyrics

Last updated: 05/18/2012 11:00:00 AM

I told myself i needed the blues
like i need a loaded pistol at my hip
but the blues help me to get over you
and now i´m seeing blue skies up ahead

sometimes the blues are necessary
though they´re quite a load to carry
when the nights are long and weary
and your heart is torn in two

i couldn´t take what you were giving
i thought that i was tired of living
life gets better once you´re past the blues

[instrument interlude]

i´m not recommending the blues
i´m just saying how they work for me
anyway what is there left to lose
except what little´s left of sanity

sometimes the blues are necessary
though they´re quite a load to carry
when the night is long and weary
and your heart is torn in two

i couldn´t take what you were givin
thought that i was tired of living
life gets better once you´re past the blues
life gets better once you´re past the blues
