Blues Run the Game
Jackson C. Frank Lyrics


Catch a boat to England baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same

Send out for whiskey baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service honey
Me and room service babe
Me and room service
Well we're living a life of sin

When I'm not drinkin' baby
You are on my mind
When I'm not sleepin' honey
When I ain't sleepin' mama
When I'm not sleepin'
You know you'll find me crying

Try another city baby
Another town
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues come followin' down

Livin' is a gamble baby
Lovin's much the same
Wherever I have played
Whenever I've thrown them dice
Wherever I have played
The blues have run the game

Maybe tomorrow honey
Some place down the line
I'll wake up older
So much older mama
I'll wake up older
And I'll just stop all my trying

Catch a boat to England baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same

[Verse 1]
Catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same

[Verse 2]
Send out for whisky, baby
Send out for gin
Me and room service, honey
Me and room service, babe
Me and room service
Well, we're living a life of sin

[Verse 3]
When I'm not drinking, baby
You are on my mind
When I'm not sleeping, honey
When I ain't sleeping, mama
When I'm not sleeping
You know you'll find me crying

[Verse 4]
Try another city, baby
Another town
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues come following down


[Verse 5]
Living is a gamble, baby
Loving's much the same
Wherever I have played
Whenever I've thrown them dice
Wherever I have played
The blues have run the game

[Verse 6]
Maybe tomorrow, honey
Someplace down the line
I'll wake up older
So much older, mama
I'll wake up older
And I'll just stop all my tryin'

[Verse 1/Outro]
Catch a boat to England, baby
Maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone
Wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone
The blues are all the same

For those who dont know, Jackson c. Frank was diagnosed with schizophrenia and depression short after he produced his first album. because of this, he could not continue his music career and lead him to spend the rest of his life homeless. He later died in 1999 of pneumonia. He never achieved fame and became a forgotten classic. This is still my favorite song to this day. May he rest in peace.

@Rick Morrow wow thank you great words🙏

Imagine being 11 years old and a furnace explosion burning you over 50% of your body, killing 15 of your classmates including your girlfriend. Besides the survivor's guilt, the loss of most of your school friends and your girlfriend, the long recovery in the hospital would offer you plenty of time to dwell on it. Blues would run your game.

I remember when I began picking up the guitar I asked a friend how you play the blues. He said: "You've got to live the blues." So many great songs written by people enduring insufferable tragedies, but are the songs worth the price? Can we still love the songs knowing the cost of their inspiration? Theses songs are a cry for understanding and a scream for help, as well as beautiful pieces of art and lyrics that are the poetry of the heart. Blues run the game.

@Jon D probably best not to read his life story then.you could not make up such misfortune.

That's one of the saddest things I've read in a long time. What a tragic loss of a real talent.
