Elton John - "Blues for Baby Me" lyrics

Music by elton john

Lyrics by bernie taupin
Available on the album dont shoot me Im only the piano player

Your old man got mad when I told him we were leaving

He cursed and he raged and he swore at the ceiling

He called you his child, said honey get wise to his game

Hell get you in trouble I know it, those bums are all the same

Theres a greyhound outside in the lane, its waiting for us

So tell him goodbye, we gotta go west on that bus

And its all over now
Dont you worry no more
Gonna go west to the sea
The greyhound is swaying

And the radio is playing

Some blues for baby and me

And the highway looks like it never did

Lord it looks so sweet and so free
And I cant forget that trip to the west
Singing blues for baby and me

Saw your hands trembling, your eyes opened in surprise

Its ninety in the shade babe, and there aint a cloud in the sky

I called you my child, said honey now this is our game

Theres two of us to play it and Im happy to be home again

Theres a greyhound outside in the lane, its waiting for us

So tell him goodbye, we gotta go west on that bus
