Everybody Understands the Blues

Uptown, downtown, all around
You can see it in their faces
Down to the holes in their shoes
Ain’t no doubt about it
Everybody understands the blues

Black and white, brown and yellow
Red man too
Regardless of their wallet
Sometimes they win sometimes they lose
Only one thing for certain
Everybody understands the blues

Death and taxes, political scams
Bill collectors who will snag you if they can
A leak in the ceiling
Rush hour jams
I’ll say it again no matter where I go or when

You can see it in their faces
Down to the holes in their shoes
There ain’t no doubt about it
Everybody understands the blues

Yeah there are solutions
But very few of them will last
So many runnin’ hopeless
Too many runnin’ outta gas

Be a prophet or a king, a sinner or a saint
A lawyer or a liar, a believer in fate
Somebody understands exactly where you’re goin’ through
Hey, everybody understands the blues
