Jon Kenton Gorrell – Everglade Blues lyrics

[Verse one]
Well I get up every morning and kick the mud off my shoes
I say I get up every morning and kick the mud off my shoes
Down south we have this thing
We call the Everglade Blues

[Verse two]
I learned to play the guitar so I’d never have to beg for bread
I say, I learned to play the guitar so I’d never have to beg for bread
Now I find myself all the time
With the blues running through my head

[Verse three]
Well I tried to kick the habit but I just kept going back
Lord knows I tried to kick the habit but I just kept going back
I just want to play all the time
That ain’t nothin’ but a fact

[Verse four]
Don’t you dare try to tell me that you know what’s on my mind
I say, don’t you dare try to tell me that you know what’s on my mind
Ah, ‘cause those wheels they are a turnin’
They’re just turning all the time

[Chorus]
I got the blues
I got the blues
I got the blues

[Verse five]
One day I found Jesus, he showed mercy on my soul
On that day that I repented, Lord, he showed mercy on my soul
My eyes were swung wide open
And I couldn’t feel the pain no more

[Outro]
We got the blues
Oh, Lord, we got the Everglade Blues
