Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Blues Man  Alan Jackson

[G]He’s just a singer, a natural born guitar [C]ringer
Kind of a [D]clinger to sad old [G]songs
He’s not a walk behinder, he’s a new note [C]finder
But his names a r[D]eminder of a [C]blues man that’s a[D]lready g[G]one
So he started drinkin’, took some things that messed up his t[C]hinkin’
He was sure s[D]inkin’ when she came a[G]long
He was alone in the spot light, not too much l[C]eft in sight
She changed all that [D]one night when she sang him this s[G]ong…


[G]Hey baby I love you, Hey baby I [Am]need you
Hey baby you a[D]in’t got to prove to me y[C]ou’re some kind of macho [G]man
You’ve wasted so much of your life, runnin’ through the [Am]dark nights
Let me shine a little l[D]ove light, d[C]own on t[D]hat blues m[G]an.

[G]He got so sick from speedin’, all the things they said he was n[C]eedin’
If he was to keep on p[D]leasin’ all of his f[G]ans
He got cuffed on dirt roads, he got sued over [C]no shows
She came an took [D]all that old load d[C]own off that old blues m[G]an
And he sang…


[G]Hey baby I love you too, Hey baby I [Am]need you
Hey baby I [D]do get tired [C]of this travelin’ [G]band
I’m over forty years old now, nights would be [Am]cold now
If you hadn’t s[D]tuck it out with this blues m[G]an
He’s over forty years old now, nights would be so [Am]cold now
If she hadn’t h[D]ung around with that blues m[G]an.
