Derby Blues

Written in 1973 outside of Churchill Downs after watching Secretariat win the Kentucky Derby with a time still unbeaten today.

Special guest Bill Tarsha on harmonic

I ain t got no money

I m hung over, hungry

How will I ever survive

I ve lost it all on horse number five


Derby blues, Derby blues

I never win more than I lose

I got the Kentucky Derby day blues


A Fine Kentucky tradition

My fatal addiction

Living for the next bet

And the rush of the win that I seldom get


Derby blues, Derby blues

I never win more than I lose

I got the Kentucky Derby day blues


Once I stood tall

Great job, fine wife, lord I had it all

Now I v lost that home

Cause I can t leave the bourbon or the horses alone


Derby blues, Derby blues

I never win more than I lose

I got the Kentucky Derby day blues
