Lyrics

Hey Ray, I feel so sad
I guess you think that no one ever
Felt so bad before

Everybody gets the blues
Everybody has the blues
Everybody knows the way that you feel today

Everybody gets to sit and cry
Everybody gets to wonder why
Everybody gets to watch the sky turn grey

Some people lose their jobs
Some fellas lose their girls
Maybe we feel like we’re losing your mind
That’s not the end of the world

Everybody gets to feel some pain
Everyone got to get to caught out in the rain
Everybody got some days that they can’t explain

Everybody got the blues
Everybody has the blues
Everybody knows the way that you feel today
