Rhythm Of The Blues (Album Version)

Mary Chapin Carpenter

I can hear the rain come down, I can listen with my heart
I can see you with both eyes closed, in the dark
Sleep will come in just a while but, till it does I choose
To listen to the rain, it's the rhythm of the blues.

I walk along these streets of home, that once belonged to us
and now baby I walk alone and I am lost
In the sound of my own footsteps, on the avenues
I guess I'm only walkin', to the rhythm of the blues

I don't wanna hear another word spoken
I don't wanna see another tear show
I can't seem to fix what's broken
Like this record, baby, in my head

Lonely looks as bad on me as
Lonely looks on you
And still we keep on moving
to the rhythm of the blues

I want a place to call my own, where you have never been
I want to look around and know you won't be coming back again
On some pretense paper thin that I can see right through
You come and go baby, like the rhythm of the blues
