LEARNIN' THE BLUES Dolores "Vicki" Silvers Julie London rec 1955 also- Joe Valino 55 Frank Sinatra w Nelson Riddle & his Orch 55 Rosemary Clooney w Buddy Clark 56 Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong 57 Frank Sinatra w Count Basie & his Orch 62 Katie Melua The tables are empty, The dance floor's deserted, You play the same love song, It's the tenth time you've heard it. That's the beginning, Just one of the clues, You've had your first lesson In learning the blues. The cigarettes you light, One after the other, Won't help you forget him And the way that you love him. You're only burning A torch you can't lose, But you're on the right track For learning the blues. When you're at home, alone, The blues will taunt you constantly; When you're out in a crowd The blues will haunt your memory. The nights that you don't sleep, The whole night you're crying, Won't help you forget him, Soon you'll even stop trying! You'll walk the floor And wear out your shoes; When you feel your heart break You're learning the blues. (Contributed by Peter Akers - May 2008)
