Lyrics for One Step Ahead Of The Blues (J j cale) by MARKED FOR DELETION :
I ain’t high on cocaine
I don’t need the pain
It’s bad for your brain and that’s true
I ain’t droppin’ no games
I ain’t playin’ no games
I’m just one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
>From Memphis to Reno
>From New York to Tokyo
I’ll try to come through for you
I won’t do you in
I ain’t no fairweather friend
I’m just one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
I don’t rob, I don’t steal
I ain’t beggin’ no meal
I ain’t driven to drink, I’m no fool
I don’t run with the crown
I don’t talk big and loud
I’m just one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
I’ve been under a spell
I ain’t been feelin’ well
I’ve been in a shell, and that’s true
Dealin’ with a curse
But it couldn’t be worse
I’ve been one step ahead of the blues
One step ahead of the blues
