Lyrics

(Verse 1)
I try to get to Austin to find my song
But the road it was twisted, it took so long
Some people help me, some got in my way
But I shimmied and shook ‘till the break of the day
I kept on singing despite what they say
The music has a madness but I like to play this way

(Verse 2)
You know, life ain’t always easy, sometimes it’s sad
And people need music even when they feel bad
So I play the blues because I like the way it makes me
Shimmy and shake ‘till the break of the day
It keeps me singing despite what they say
The music has a madness but I like to play this way (this way)

(Bridge)
‘Till the break of the day
Break of the day (break of the day)
Break of the day (break of the day)
I’ll play (this way)

(Verse 3)
Maybe I’ve gone mad or maybe I’m lazy
I’m bustin’ at the seams and my hair has gone crazy
But I play the blues because I like the way it makes me
Shimmy and shake ‘till the break of the day
It keeps me singing despite what they say
The music has a madness but I like to play this way (this way)

(Chorus)
‘Till the break of the day
‘Till the break of the day, ‘Till the break of the day
‘Till the break of the day, ‘Till the break of the day
