Charley Patton Songs - Gomez

I spend a lifetime
Trying to decipher
Charley Patton Songs.

I don't know why I bother,
Even if I think it's right,
It always comes out wroung.

But I'm old enough,
Old enough to know why
You're still young enough,
Young enough to still try, still try.

I keep on pushing,
For some way through it,
Til I'm knackered out

I know how you're feeling,
Even though I've never been
That far south

But I'm old enough,
Old enough to know why
You're still young enough,
Young enough to still try, still try.

And I been lookin in New York,
I been lookin in Chicago,
I been lookin in New Orleans
I can't find you

I been lookin in Detroit,
I been lookin in Los Angeles,
I been lookin in Louisville
I cannot find you

Well I'm old enough,
Old enough to know why
You're still young enough,
Young enough to still try, you still try.

I been lookin in New York,
I been lookin in Chicago,
I been lookin in New Orleans
I can't find you

I been lookin in Detroit,
I been lookin in Los Angeles,
I been lookin in Louisville
I cannot find you

I been lookin in the Lonely States,
I been lookin in Philadelphia,
I been lookin in Memphis,
I cannot find you,
I cannot find you
