Looking To Cure My Blues

Words and Music

Jim Silcox


Song evolved from the classic influences of ZZ Top, Golden Earring and Black Sabbath. Somehow twisted together, rocked up, chewed up, spit out, and there you have it. A twisted, morbid tale written from the grave. -js


It was late one Saturday night
I was looking for something to do
Something didn't feel quite right, yeah
I needed to cure my blues

Went down to the local dance hall
Feelin down and blue
But I started to feel all right, yeah
The moment that I saw you

Yeah, went over and sat beside you
Your eyes hypnotic blue
Damn straight we made quite a sight
Dancing the whole night through

Your smile was quite enticing
But I didn't have a clue
My life would soon be over
The night that I met you

Yeah baby
We walked out the back of the dance hall
We was fixin to cure our blues
Something didn't smell quite right
Seems his gun had me in view

One sad jealous old man
With a temper and not a clue
His gun had six shots three for me
The rest were named for you

So that's the end of the story
A story sad but true
Ya know sometimes you just can't win
No matter what you do

Now I'm lying here beside you
I'm buried here and turning blue
Two love starved souls in eternity
Forever I'll spend with you
