Just around the corner there's heartache 
Down the street that losers use
If you can wade in through the teardrops 
You'll find me at the Home of the Blues 

I walk and cry while my heartbeat  Keeps time with the drag of my shoes 
The sun never shines through this window of mine
It's dark at the Home of the Blues 

Oh, but the place is filled with the sweetest mem'ries
 Memories so sweet that I cry
 Dreams that I've had left me feeling so bad
I just want to give up and lay down and die

So if you've just lost your sweetheart 
And it seems there's no good way to choose 
Come along with me, misery loves company 
You're welcome at the Home of the Blues 

Just around the corner there's heartache 
Down the street that losers use
If you can wade in through the teardrops 
You'll find me at the Home of the Blues 
Yeah, you're gonna find me at the Home of the Blues
