Lyrics
LA NEW YEARS BLUES (COPYRIGHTED 2015)

(Feel free to put an Instrumental BRIDGE after last verse)

CHORUS 1:
A7 B7 C7

Another year and I'm looking for her
Killing pain with more cheap booze
Just living a way with no more virtues
Everything is fuzzy and just a blur
You got to love the LA New Years blues..............
Yeah, you got to love the LA blues

CHORUS 2:
A7 B7 C7

Another year that ended badly
Walking around in worn out shoes
In another Tin Pan Alley
I am lost, I stand accused
You got to love the LA New Years blues
Yeah, you got to love the LA blues


VERSE: 1

CM7 (2-3 strums DOWN) FMAJ7 (2-3 Strums UP)

She took it away on a Chicago train
Didn't know she'd could leave me this low
Millions of people and I'm alone in this pain
G AMaj7
Another failed love and nothing to show

Verse 2

Been a year since I started these blues
Another year I seem to choose to lose
All my dreams are dead so it seems
G AMaj7
Booze and sorrow just my constant theme


Verse 3

I remember days of being by the sea
Feeling the love and being easy and free
The stars don't burn as bright at night
G AMaj7
Since you've been gone, nothing is right
