Get Away Blues

 

wanna float down the river, baby
wanna get away from here
i said i wanna float down that river, baby
i'm gonna wash away my fear
and if i can't float down the river, darlin
i'm gonna drown you in my tears

oh, i wanna take a train to memphis, honey
wanna learn to sing the blues
i'm gonna take a train to memphis, honey
after i'm done payin' my dues
and if i can't take that train to memphis, sugar
i'll just put on my walkin' shoes.

oh, i know i treat you badly
i know i've been unkind
i said i know i been treatin' you badly, baby
i just can't help but be unkind
you done twisted my soul against me
so i gotta cut these ties that bind.

i wanna drift away without you, darlin
i want you to set me free
i said i wanna drift away without you, darlin
and i want you to set me free
and if i can't drift away without you, baby
gotta learn to let you be


i wish like hell i still had my guitar. somebody
set this to music for me. give it a slow and heavy
beat with a lot of minor blues chords, please.
