Century Blues

12-30-99

 

 

Verse 1

You got planes falliní out of the sky

When the lights go out and all the water runs dry

Phones wonít work, trains wonít run

You lose your money at the point of a gun

I gotta get up and turn off the news

I got the end of the twentieth century blues

Iíve only got one life to lose

I got the end of the twentieth century blues

 

Verse 2

You got bombs flyiní into the air

You canít buy no food Ďcos thereís nothiní down there

Mail wonít come, boats wonít go

You know I heard it on my little radio

I gotta get up and turn off the news

I got the end of the twentieth century blues

Iíve only got one life to lose

I got the end of the twentieth century blues

 

(Solo to verse)

 

Verse 3

I got a woman wonít get out of my face

My homeís a mess, I canít stand the place

Dog wonít hunt, car wonít start

This whole dang world is a-falliní apart

I gotta get up and turn off the news

I got the end of the twentieth century blues

Iíve only got one life to lose

I got the end of the century

The twentieth century

End of the twentieth century blues
