Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Blues Man  Alan Jackson

He's just a s[G]inger, a natural born guitar r[C]inger
Kind of a cl[D]inger to sad old s[G]ongs
He's not a walk beh[G]inder, he's a new note f[Am]inder
But his name's a rem[D]inder of a blues man that's already g[G]one
So he started dr[G]inkin' Took some things that messed up his th[C]inkin'
He was sure s[D]inkin' when she came al[G]ong
He was alone in the sp[G]otlight, Not too much l[Am]eft in sight
She changed all th[D]at one night When she sang him this s[G]ong

   Hey baby I l[G]ove you, Hey baby I n[Am]eed you
   Hey baby you a[D]in't got to prove to me
   You're some kind of macho m[G]an
   You've wasted so much of y[G]our live
   Runnin' through the d[Am]ark nights
   Let me shine a little l[D]ove light Down on that blues m[G]an

instr: C G

He got so sick from sp[G]eedin'
All the things they said he was n[C]eedin'
If he was to keep on pl[D]easin' all of his f[G]ans
He got cuffed on dirt r[G]oads He got sued over [Am]no shows
She came and took all th[D]at old load
Down off that blues m[G]an,  and he sang

   Hey baby I l[G]ove you too, Hey baby I n[Am]eed you
   Hey baby I d[D]o get tired  of this travellin' b[G]and
   I'm over 40 years [G]old now, nights would be c[Am]old now
   If you hadn't st[D]uck it out   with this blues m[G]an
   He's over 40 years [G]old now, nights would be so c[Am]old now
   If she hadn't h[D]ung around   with that blues m[G]an
