The tables are empty - the dance floor's deserted
You play the same love song - it's the tenth time you've heard it
That's the beginning - just one of the clues
You've had your first lesson - in learnin' the blues
The cigarettes you light - one after another
Won't help you forget her - and the way that you love her
You're only burnin' - a torch you can't lose
But you're on the right track - for learnin' the blues
When you're at home alone, the blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd, the blues will haunt your memory
The nights when you don't sleep - the whole night you're cryin'
But you can't forget her - soon you even stop tryin'
You'll walk that floor - and wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break - you're learnin' the blues
When you're at home alone, the blues will taunt you constantly
When you're out in a crowd, those blues will haunt your memory
The nights when you don't sleep - that whole night you're cryin'
But you can't forget her - soon you even stop tryin'
You'll walk the floor - and you'll wear out your shoes
When you feel your heart break - you're learnin' those blues
