My name is Dawson Leery, I’m feeling kind of weary.
Today is my birthday and y’all look a little bleary.
The girl that I cared for
Left me and ran away.
Straight into the arms of a guy who turned out to be gay!
I got the blues, yeah, today I woke up feeling like I was born to lose.
Yeah, I got the blues, some days you were born to lose.
