  • I come from the country
    Grew up over [?]
    There are places I ain't welcomed
    And I had to loot and cry

    I slipped in the back door
    Still I never got my share
    But the blues don't care

    My best friend had to tell me
    What I could never see
    What that woman did the best
    Was run around on me

    I had to learn the hard way
    That all in love ain't fair
    But the blues don't care

    The blues don't care
    Now the blues don't care
    You can curse and complain
    Till it drives you insane
    But the blues don't care

    I tried to reach for higher ground
    Never dream that I could fall
    I believed that I could fly
    High above it all

    Talk about hitting bottom
    Brother I have been there
    And the blues don't care

    I laughed and talked with Jesus
    Told it all to Him
    I am afraid I told Him too much
    For Him to let me in

    Chances are He'll lose my number
    When the roll is called up there
    But the blues don't care
    But the blues don't care
    No, the blues don't care

    You can curse and complain
    You can say it just ain't fair
    But the blues don't care
    The blues don't care
