Catch a boat to England, baby, maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone, wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone, the blues I'd to sing

Go bring me whiskey, baby, go bring me gin
Me and room service, honey, me and room service
Me and room service, well, we're living like a sin

When I'm not drinking, baby, you are on my mind
When I'm not sleeping, when I'm not sleeping
When I'm not sleeping, well, you know, you'll find me crying

Try another city, baby, some other town
Wherever I have gone, wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone, the blues run the game

Well, maybe someday, baby, somewhere down the line
I'll wake up older, honey, so much older
I'll wake up older and I'll just stop all my trying

Catch a boat to England, baby, maybe to Spain
Wherever I have gone, wherever I've been and gone
Wherever I have gone, the blues run the game
