     THE BLUES MAN    Alan Jackson

             G#                             A#m
He's just a singer  a natural born guitar ringer
            D#                 G#
Kind of a clinger to sad old songs
      G#                                  A#m
He's not a walk behinder He's a new note finder.
                   D#                                    G#
He's an Angel's reminder of a blues man that's already gone
                G#                                       A#m
So he started drinking took things that messed up his thinking
                  D#                     G#
He was short of sinking Till she came a-long
G#                                           A#m
He was alone in the spot light  Not too much left inside
                                  D#             G#
She changed all that in just one night When she sang him this song  

G#                              A#m
Hey Baby I love you Hey baby I need you
                           D#                              G#
Hey baby you ain't got to prove you're some kind of macho Man
 G#                                         A#m
You wasted so much of your life   running through the dark nights
                            D#                    G# 
Let me shine a little love light down that Blues Man   go to lead


 G#                                                                    A#m
He got so sick from speedin'   Doing all the things they said he was needin'
A#m                      D#                 G#       
If he was to keep on pleasin'  All of his fans
G#                                            C#
He got cuffed on dirt roads  He got sued over no shows
                       D#             G#
She came and took off that old load Down off that Blues Man And he sang

G#                                 A#m
Hey Baby I love you too Hey baby I need you
                  D#              G#
Oh baby I do get tire of this traveling band
G#                                         A#m 
I'm over 40 years old now  Nights would be cold Now
A#m                      D#            G#
If you hadn't stuck it out with  this Blues Man
G#                                         A#m 
He's over 40 years old now Nights would be cold now
A#m                 D#                G#
If she hadn't hung around with that Blues Man
