The Soft Parade 

Running Blue
by Robbie Krieger
Doors Music Company ASCAP

Poor Otis dead and gone
Left me here to sing his song.
Pretty little girl with the red dress on
Poor Otis dead and gone.

Try again
Remembering when.
It was easy, try it again
Much too easy remembering when.

All right, look at my shoes
Now quite the walking blues.
Don't fight, too much to lose
Can't fight the running blues.

Well I've got the running blues running away
Back to LA.
Got to find the dock of the bay
Maybe find it back in LA.

Running scared, running blue
Going so fast, what'll I do.
All right, look at my shoes
Not quite the walking blues.
Don't fight, too much to lose
Can't fight the running blues.
