The Blues, Mary

I learned how to hammer
In the burning August sun
I learned how to lie and cheat
How to steal and just how to run
I fell asleep most nights
Somebody else's blood on my tongue, your tongue
You learn just how to run
 
[Chorus:]
But it's just the blues, Mary, the blues
Swirling around my head like your dreams in Dorothy's shoes
I'm somewhere over the rainbow for you
 
I learned how to cry
In them lonesome September nights
I learned to get by
With the dogs and the dirt and the charm of the street
I fell asleep most nights
With your pictures right behind my eyes, your eyes
The killer and the victim
Right at the same time
 
[Chorus]
 
And cause your smile
Is bright like the ramparts on the 4th of July
And my baby swings like a boxer
And sends her right hooks under my chin
She cries like a baby
And she wears me just like a ring
Cries like a baby
And she wears me just like a ring
I'd rather go than watch you leave
 
I learned how to swagger
I learned how to hold you while your body burn
I learned how to compromise
While this whirlwind hurricane turned
We fell asleep most nights
With each other's blood on our tongues
My love
Have you ever just had enough?
 
[Chorus]
 
Croatian
