MAMA, I AIN’T SAD (I’M JUST SINGING THE BLUES)

i can see you now
in a nighttime gown
by a windowsill
with that mother’s frown

but mama
i tell you all the time
and it’s always true
i ain’t sad
i’m just singing the blues

i know you worry
but mama, i’m grown
as long as there’s blues
i’m never alone

this is just my way
of kissing goodbye the day
it’s just my right
to stay up every night

cause mama
i tell you all the time
and it’s always true
i ain’t sad
i’m just singing the blues

that telephone ain’t gon’ ring
after darkness falls
but mama, won’t you hear me
that i thank you for it all

this is just my way
of kissing goodbye the day
it’s just my right
to stay up every night

but mama
i tell you all the time
and it’s always true
i ain’t sad
i’m just singing the blues

    • I’m sorry, Carl. I can’t imagine how hard that is. Hope you’re doing alright. It was really hard for my dad when my grandma passed away. Take care.

    • Thanks, Craig. It’s a simple one. My mom asked me why everything I wrote was so sad, saying she was worried, so I wrote this in response. Kind of a simple one, but I like it.
