For the last time
I watched old man took bait his hook
And then throw his line
Pick up his wine

He's a friend of mine
Known him all my life and his wife
'Neath the swayin' pine and the clingin' vine
Just before he left

He said, "Now young man
Take good care, don't let the bugs bite
Please make sure to say a word at night
For all your brothers feeling blue, blue, blue, blue all the time"

So I stayed awhile
Took my tea alone, called it home
Like a playing child
Running wild

Heard a blue jay call
Said we got you now, hope you bow
To the old man's word, I'm sure you heard
Just before he left

He said, "Now young man
Take good care, don't let the bugs bite
Please make sure to say a word at night
For all your brothers feeling blue, blue, blue, blue, all the time"

Now young man
Take good care, don't let the bugs bite
Please make sure to say a word at night
For all your brothers feeling blue

Feeling blue
Feeling blue
Feeling blue
Feeling blue

Feeling blue
Feeling blue
Feeling blue
Feeling blue
