Blame The Vain
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I blame the vain for what we wear
And I blame the blind when we can't see
I blame it all on somebody else
'Til there's nobody left, then I just blame me

I blame her mind for the thoughts we share
Whoa, and I blame her heart for the time we cared
I blame it all on how we used to be
'Til she's finally gone, then I'll just blame me

So go ahead and blame anything that you want
'Cause it all end up the same
When everything that you've been claiming is wrong

Oh and don't you know that blame
Is always never enough
It just keeps you in the game
'Til you've only got yourself left to bluff

I blame the vain for what we wear
And I blame the blind when we can't see
I blame it all on somebody else
'Til there's nobody left, then I just blame me

'Til she's finally gone, then I'll just blame me

Lyrics
I blame the vain for what we wear,
And I blame the blind when we can't see.
I blame it all on someone else,
Till there's nobody left, then I just blame me.

I blame her mind for the thoughts we share,
Whoa, and I blame her heart for the time we cared.
I blame it all on how we used to be,
Till she's finally gone, then I'll just blame me.

So go ahead and blame,
Anything that you want.
'Cause it all ends up the same,
When everything that you've been claiming is wrong.

Oh and don't you know that blame,
Is always never enough.
It just keeps you in the game,
Till you've only got yourself left to bluff.

So I blame the vain for what we wear,
Yeah, and I'll blame the blind when we can't see.
I'll blame it all on someone else,
Till there's nobody left, then I'll just blame me.
Till she's fin'lly gone, then I just blame me

I blame the vain for what we wear
And I blame the blind when we can't see
I blame it all on somebody else
'Til there's nobody left, then I just blame me

I blame her mind for the thoughts we share
Whoa, and I blame her heart for the time we cared
I blame it all on how we used to be
'Til she's finally gone, then I'll just blame me

So go ahead and blame anything that you want
'Cause it all end up the same
When everything that you've been claiming is wrong

Oh and don't you know that blame
Is always never enough
It just keeps you in the game
'Til you've only got yourself left to bluff

I blame the vain for what we wear
And I blame the blind when we can't see
I blame it all on somebody else
'Til there's nobody left, then I just blame me

'Til she's finally gone, then I'll just blame me

The live version of "Miners Prayer" is one of my favorite songs ever. Been to a lot of concerts including 3-4 of Dwight's and his have always been awesome.

Have you ever considered the depth of these seemingly if not deceptively simple lyrics ?  Dwight is many things indeed;  to me he shines here as a Master Poet.
