Blues, When it comes to you… [POEM]

If I can’t do nothin’ else,
I’m still gone do
nothin’ like what I do,
when it comes to you…

If I have to work a railroad,
train myself to dig coal,
I’d just set a goal,
and bring it on home to you…

Them streets say I’m hooked,
them roads say I’m lost,
them old heads say I’m wide open,
say I ain’t on top no more, I’m off…

but ain’t nothin’ can be said,
you’re all that’s in my head,
I think about you,
or you instead,
that’s what I do…

Break my back on that line,
break my leg on this stage,
break my heart on these words,
break my pen on this page,
just what I’d do…

Them boys say I’m crazy,
them girls say I’m wrong,
daddy say I’m stupid,
momma say I’m gone,

but ain’t nothin’ can be said,
you’re all that’s in my head,
I think about you,
or you instead,
that’s what I do…

I’m gone keep right on truckin’,
till I wind up with somethin’,
you just have my supper,
I’m on my way home to you…

If I can’t do nothin’ else,
I’m still gone do nothin’
like what I do,
when it comes to you…
