Blue Ridge Mountain Blues

from by Wes Tirey



You left last month, darling
For the land of corn and steel
Packed your bags and said goodbye
And got behind the wheel
I miss you like hell
And I miss Ohio, too
I’m just sitting here on Sunday
With the Blue Ridge Mountain blues

I put it on a suit, darling
I put on a tie
I may not be that handsome
But I clean up alright
It ain’t a mystery, darling
I don’t need a clue
I got all dressed up for no one
With these Blue Ridge Mountain blues

I got a job, darling
Where I make a decent pay
I’ve been saving what I can
To make it back your way
We could live together again
If you’d so choose
For now I’m stuck in Carolina
With the Blue Ridge Mountain blues

You left some of your things here, darling
A dress, a scarf, and some shoes
I think if you let me bring ‘em back to ya
I’d lose these Blue Ridge Mountain Blues
