Those Drier Side Blues

Words and music by Bill Price

Rooster's crowin' and the dogs all bark
You took my dreams - left me here in the dark

You let the river of love dry right up into sand
Served me a drink - you pulled it from my hand

If I thought about thinking well I'd think of you first
But it ain't easy living here dying of thirst
What's new is old - it's the same old news

Oh baby, Oh you
You left me with those drier side blues

Well I've seen big girls and I've seen 'em small
But I'd carry you walkin' - I'd carry you crawl

I've been looking from Longmont to Syracuse
There ain't no other girl that's quite like you

I looked to the west - I looked to the east
I dreamed of a carpenter but I saw a priest
I looked into my soul - I found a worn out shoe

Oh baby, Oh you
You left me with those drier side blues

Your love came down in a pouring rain
But not a drop of it remains
I blew my nose, you know, I know the blues

Oh baby, Oh you
You left me with those drier side blues
