Goodbye Baby (Cos I Pick Blues)

I went to see my baby. I drove all night long
I bought a ring and flowers to declare my love
I put the car in park. Straightened myself up
But when I knocked her door another man answered

I said a where's my woman and who the hell are you
He said I'm her man. I said "Oh is that true?"
I walked right in and on the bed she sat
Almost naked and covered in sweat

I said tell me baby who's this man?
She said I'm sorry. You been away so long
I got a part time lover while you were living your dream
He treats me so much better. He's always there for me

Well I'd been on the road for two months straight
Playing my shows and drinking my weight
She said it's me or the music and you gotta choose
I said well goodbye baby cos I pick blues

So when I left i figured it wasn't meant to be
I couldn't blame that feller. He didn't know about me
She was a beautiful woman. We had a good long run
But if that's her game I guess she ain't my one

Now I'm back on the road for three months straight
Playing my shows yeh life's just great
I stepped on the gas, and cut her loose
Cos my one true love is just playing the blues
