Guy Clark – “Dublin Blues”

Well, I wished I was in Austin, mmm
In the Chili Parlor Bar
Drinkin’ Mad Dog Margaritas
And not carin’ where you are
But here I sit in Dublin, mmm
Just rollin’ cigarettes
Holdin’ back and chokin’ back
The shakes with every breath

So forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There’s no need to forgive me
For thinkin’ what I thought
I loved you from the get go
And I’ll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish Steps
The day you said goodbye

I am just a poor boy, mmm
Work’s my middle name
If money was a reason
Well, I would not be the same
I’ll stand up and be counted, mmm
I’ll face up to the truth
I’ll walk away from trouble
But I can’t walk away from you

So forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There’s no need to forgive me
For thinkin’ what I thought
I loved you from the get go
And I’ll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish Steps
The day you said goodbye

I have been to Fort Worth, mmm
And I have been to Spain
And I have been too proud
To come in out of the rain
And I have seen the David, mmm
I’ve seen the Mona Lisa too
And I have heard Doc Watson
Play Columbus Stockade Blues

Forgive me all my anger
Forgive me all my faults
There’s no need to forgive me
For thinkin’ what I thought
I loved you from the get go
And I’ll love you till I die
I loved you on the Spanish Steps
The day you said goodbye

Well, I wished I was in Austin, mmm
In the Chili Parlor Bar
Drinkin’ Mad Dog Margaritas
And not carin’ where you are
