ATLANTA RHYTHM SECTION
"I Hate The Blues / Let's Go Get Stoned"
(Buddy Buie / Dean Daughtry / Robert Nix / Ashford & Simpson)

I hate the blues
I hate the blues
Play me something I can cloud 9 to
'Cause I hate the blues

Crank it up
And give it to me funky
Leave them blues alone
Have me in mood for something optimistic
We've been down too long

Have the songs
We all need them
We've been down too long
Happy, happy songs
You can't beat them
Make somebody want to sing along
(Sing along)

I hate the blues
I hate the blues
Play me something I can cloud 9 to
I'm sick and tired of the blues

I've tried rain songs
And pain songs
And blow out of your brain songs
And songs about how to lose
I hate broken heart songs
And torned apart songs
And put that off the chart songs
I'll just stay in the nude.

I hate the blues
Yes, I hate the blues
So come on boys
And play a good time song
Hey give me something we can cloud 9 to
Cloudin' makes you want to sing along.
I hate the blues
