Walking in the Shadow of the Blues
by Whitesnake



I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it you can never understand
So many times I thought about it
And now I know just what it means to be a man

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cause I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues

All of my life I've had a strange reputation,
I've been the black sheep of the family all along
I never know if in my heart I'm really guilty
But, I've been accused of never knowing right from wrong

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cause I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues

My father said you're crazy,
He said what you gonna do?
I left with my guitar and said
I'll leave it up to you

I'm gonna live the life I love
And live the life I choose,
And I'm walking in the shadow of the blues

I love the blues,
They tell my story,
If you don't feel it I will tell you once again
All of my life I've been caught up in a crossfire,
'Cause I've been branded with the devil mark of cain

Everyday I realize you can see it in my eyes
I never wait, or hesitate.
'Cause I love the life I live,
I'm gonna live the life I choose,
You gotta understand
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues,
I'm walking in the shadow of the blues
