BEGGAR FOR THE BLUES (Ray Rasch / Dotty Wayne) as recorded by Nat "King" Cole with Nelson Riddle & his Orchestra 1960 When love smiles at me, I just can't refuse, Don't care if I cry till the tears run down my shoes. I ask for it every time, 'Cause I'm a beggar for the blues! When love pulls me in like an undertow, If I gotta die, that's the way I wanna go. Don't care if I win or lose, 'Cause I'm a beggar for the blues! I'd say goodbye, But then I ask myself what for, I know that I Would only hurry back for more! I know I'm a fool, got no alibis, My heart's been to school but I never will get wise. I live in the way that I choose, 'Cause I'm a beggar for the blues! I know I'm a fool, got no alibis, My heart's been to school but I never will get wise. I live in the way that I choose, 'Cause I'm a beggar for the blues, I live in the way that I choose, 'Cause I'm a beggar for the blues! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - October 2014)
