    Lyrics »

Well I don't know why I hang out, hand
out all night long
Hang out all night long knowin' I'm doin'
my baby wrong
I don't know why - I don't know why
I don't know why I keep singin'
these blues
I don't know why but I do
I don't know why I gamble with my love
on the line
I put my love on the line but I get caught
every time
I don't know why - I don't know why
I don't know why I keep singin'
these blues
I don't know why but I do
Well I don't know why I do you like I do
When night after night all I want is you
I don't know why I keep singin'
these blues
I don't know why but I do
I don't know why I'm always tryin' to get
my baby back
Tryin' to get my baby back and keep this
train on the track
I don't know why - I don't know why
I don't know why I keep singin'
these blues
I don't know why but I do
Well I don't know why I do you like I do
When night after night all I want is you
I don't know why I keep singin'
these blues
I don't know why but I do
