All my biscuits are broken,
and I'm eating the crumbs.
Sometimes you just take it
any way that it comes.

Oh, my baby is rambling,
and I can't track her down.
It's three weeks tomorrow
since she rolled out of town.

And I know she's a good girl
and she won't do me wrong,
but the days are so empty
and the nights are too long.

I ate all the oysters
and I'm down to the shells.
You know we all do things
that none of us tells.

And my best friends are tired
of me singing the blues -
well, if I told the truth, friends,
I'd say I'm tired too.

But I need a companion
when I get so lowdown.
When my friends say, "Good night, Slim,"
the blues stick around.

When my baby gets back here,                  
I will send them away.
I'll say, "Thanks for your time, blues,
I don't need you today."

Every cat has its whiskers,
every dog has its day.
When your baby is rambling,
got to see it that way.
Regular blues.

not a "country" record, though it has some acoustic strings - much better than the one with Alison Kraus last year

I'm a sucker for some bluesy broken biscuits.
