Lyrics of Blue Times Two

Well I've been doing some thinking and some rithmetic too
I've been counting all the things lately, that have made me blue
The numbers don't lie, this I know to be true
But I could sure use some happiness, because I'm long over due

My boss man just told me "don't come around here to work anymore
Tough times have forced me to close this old factory door
I wish I could help you, but there is nothing, nothing I can do
I've got my own set of problems and I'm blue just like you

So after losing my house and both of my farms
I slipped on the ice and I broke both of my arms
Now I have to borrow from friends and I'm forced to beg
And I think I'm getting arthritis in my only good leg

Ya know...I'm due for some happiness, hell, I'm way overdue
But it never seems to happen and I'm still bluer than blue

Then my girl up and left me for some other guy
I knew it was coming because I knew why
And my old dog ran away, yeah, she left me too
I get the feeling they were both blue times two

Then my old truck started to rattle, it coughed and then wheezed
And in less than three seconds that old engine had seized
Coincidence I thought, well that may be true
But I'm willing to bet that old Chevy was blue times two

Now after sitting up all night thinking and doing some rithmetic too
Counting all that has happened, that has left me so dang blue
The sun has risen and I'm still, still not through
Just sitting here alone with my thoughts and blue times two

Ya know...I'm due for some happiness, hell, I'm way overdue
But it never seems to happen and I'm still bluer than blue

I wish I could be happy, I'm so long overdue
But until that miracle happens
I'll be blue times two
Blue times two, bluer than blue

Until that miracle happens, I'll be blue times two.
