I Could Dance All Night to the Blues

This city's a madhouse, I feel right at home
In this after-hours blues joint I'm waiting for the telephone
Now that you're gone I'll be happy again
But Darling I miss you so I call now and then
Your number keeps ringing but the band's in a groove
And I could dance all night to the blues

Down here in this punker bar they dance away their tears
Their hair is catching fire while mine disappears
Remember those midnights when we danced to the blues?
I took off my skinny tie and you kicked off your shoes
I guess I'm old fashioned just a sentimental schmooze
But I could dance all night to the blues
To the blues, yeah!

The moonlight is right for a Mississippi cruise
And I could dance all night to the blues
I could dance all night to the blues



I Am the Heart


Geoff; vocal, 1971 Martin D-35 in standard tuning key of G minor, C harmonica
