  • Lyrics: Gave you all my money, but my debts are far from paid Come 3000 miles, just to get my options weighed Fell like a drop inside the bucket to the big old well Carrying too much product, but ain't got the means to sell Never brought you out, you just come knocking on my door Tried to fend you off quick, but you come around some more Now look at where you got me, I done 'ready worn my new shoes Hands drenched in pain- from shuckin' the busker's blues... ch: The streets don't love me no more x 4 Hired me a ballerina, tryin' to draw a bigger crowd But the system I'm still playing for, just got to be more loud My mind is so distorted, that my voice meanders rounds Upstaged on caddy-corner, by a company of clowns The traffic's always so loud, steady stompin' on the stone That I'm bustin' out harmonicas not hearin' what they blow Brand new corner, but the lines are all the same, but you know it ain't me...busker's blues to blame ch: br: Eyes wide open blind me, like the circle 'round the sun The din of two tongues spoke, together feel like one Some will wear a smile Others will a sneer I wanna do like a tractor Roll over them and disappear You said that all you needed was to give you much respect But you stole my only vehicle, then crashed and left it wrecked And now my livid is as vivid, as some early morning dream Woke my bread was empty, and i ordered one with cream One smile from mamacita's just enough to get that perk You couldn't put a price on love, if you could even call it work Is living worth a quarter? Feeling like a lousy dime Try to blame it on the weather, but busker's blues won't make no time ch: Behind the city walls I get two rations every day Where I talk to Spanish dancing girls who wanna shake it my way And paired up with a drummer so hard-pressed to find his seat Got me tapping my legs so hard, got knots all in my feet But if I was a gypsy with a Django Reinhart taste And a Portuguese bolero, there's be gold here in my case But I'm cryin' the busker's blues, to spread the news around And when the devil locks me up, it'll be the only sound ch:
