BORN TO SING THE BLUES (Twitty)
Born to sing the blues,
So tired and worn, just singin' the blues.
Alone right from the start,
I walked alone with blues in my heart!
True love I've never known,
Everything I do is wrong.
But wrong I've always been,
It's hard to go on 'cause I never win!
My life, my destiny
Is loneliness and misery.
But my life I didn't choose,
I guess I was born to sing the blues,
The lonesome blues,
The weary blues.
