MOVIN' ON BLUES

Looked around this mornin' and you were gone
Looked all around this mornin' and you were gone
Why is everybody but me movin' on?

You know, babe, you know how much I tried
Yeah, I tried and I tried and I tried and I tried
But it ain’t enough, enough to keep you satisfied

Gave you all I got, gave it all for free
Gave it just to you, gave it all for free
How do I get by, ain’t nothin’ left for me

Used to have sunshine, now there's nothin' but rain
Where I had sunshine, ain't nothin' but rain
Looks like we're both goin' down the drain

Looked around this mornin' and you were gone
Looked all around and you were gone
Why is everybody but me movin' on?

Yeah, one of those generic twelve-bar blues songs. Y'all know the chords already, right? Much of this was written some time back, just waiting to be finished. And now it is, I reckon.
