She could dance and she could sing
She left Texas with her dreams
She swore that she could make it on her own

She was young and she was fine
She had looks and she had time

As soft as she was warm
Knowin' she'd be discovered any day

But the things she did the best

And the singing just got lost along the way

[Chorus]
Baby sings the blues down on Broadway
Singing from bottom of her heart 
Baby sings the blues down on Broadway
Then cries herself to sleep there in the dark

From a blessing to a curse
Things just went from bad to worse
Life at night worked out the way she planned

And although her dreams were gone
She just couldn't go back home
To a town she knew that would not understand

[Chorus: x2]
