Insanely — That’s The Blues By Any Other Name   2 comments

I went out to the insane asylum
And I found my baby out thereI said
“Please come back to me darlin
‘What in the world are you doin’ here?”
Then the little girl raised up her head
Tears was streamin’ down from her eyes
And these are the things
That the little girl said
“When your love has ceased to be(Lord have mercy)
There’s no other place for me(Mmm mmm)
If you don’t hold me in your arms(Oh child oh child)
I’d rather be here from now on”
“Some people have it halfway fare
Without your love I ain’t nowhere”
“Oh I can’t eat and I can’t sleep(Oh child oh child)
Lord I can’t even live in peace(Mmm mmm)
Please take me baby for your slave(Oh oh)
And save me from that early grave”
“Some people have it halfway fare
Without your love I ain’t nowhere”
And then sorrow struck my heart
Tears began to stream down from my eyes
The only woman that I ever loved in all my life
Out here in a place in a condition like this
And I began to thinkin’ about
What my mama told me when
I was a little boy
She told me when
I couldn’t help myself
To get down on my knees and pray
Then I fell down on my knees
And these are the words that I said
“Save me save me save me, babe
Save me save me save me, dear
Whoa, I don’t know just how I made it
But I’m so glad our love is here
But I’m so glad our love is here
But I’m so glad our love is here”
— Willie Dixon
