Brokenhearted blues

When you went out just like a candle
I done cried the whole night long
cried the whole night long
rolling down
rolling down
from my head down to my shoe

'Twas more than I could handle
that night were long
night were long
all the stars had gone
lemme drown, lemme drown
ain't never gettin' over you

When I be crossing that River Styx
Lord have mercy
ain't no ferryman
gonna take my crown
take my crown
he just gonna lay me down
with a heart so blue
