BIRTHDAY BLUES

This is my sweetie’s birthday but she is far away
It is my sweetie’s birthday but she’s much too far away
I wish that I could sing my Happy Birthday song today

We live too far apart, only see her now and then
Live way too far apart, only see her now and then
Someday I’ll be with her and my misery will end

This is my sweetie’s birthday, gonna call her on the phone
It is my sweetie’s birthday, have to call her on the phone
If I hear that busy signal I will feel so all alone

She lives in Alabama, three-hundred miles from me
Way off in Alabama, three-hundred miles from me
Can you tell me why things have to be the way they have to be?

This is my sweetie’s birthday but she is far away
It is my sweetie’s birthday but she’s much too far away
I wish that I could sing my Happy Birthday song today

Happy Birthday to you....

A blues...yes, it is Lynda's birthday and, no, I'm not seeing her, but this was mostly just an excuse to write a tongue-in-cheek I'm-so-sad blues song.
