 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

The blues bent and caught me by surprise
You went and you made it back alive
And you sent me a message from a brighter day
Long past, a story from another time
Didn't last, a little like a nursery rhyme
We were going fast, nothing standing in our way
At least it used to feel that way by the ocean
We used to sit and watch the waves roll by
Then we went and hit that big time notion
But we're gonna get back there by and by
Blues ain't the worst that you could ever be
Blues paint the darkness so your soul can see
Some faint reminders written on the wall
From old fellas when they left it all behind
I'm jealous chasing something I can't find
But they tell us just smile and have a ball
The way it used to be back then by the ocean
We used to sit and watch the waves roll by
Then we went and hit that big time notion
But we're gonna get back there by and by
Now I'm waiting for the sun to hit the hill
Light fading, the shadow on the window sill
Creating the only drama in my day
Resetting every channel in my brain
And letting every rider in the rain
Come home and rest outside the fray
The way it used to be back then by the ocean
We used to sit and watch the waves roll by
Then we went and hit that big time notion
But we're gonna get back there by and by
Yeah we're gonna get back there by and by
Yeah we're gonna get back there by and by
