Toe Pain Blues Lyrics

Gonna tell you a story of sufferin'
Gonna sing you the blues
I may not look like a man in pain
But if you could walk a mile in my shoes
No I haven't lost my job, my house or my car
My woman didn't leave me with a broken heart
Those people have no idea what true pain is about
You just don't know how it feels to be a man with gout

We hiked all day
Something just wasn't right
And then in the tent where I lay
Couldn't sleep through the night
I said, Kristy there's something I've been keeping back
Something swelling and throbbing down in my sleeping sack
She opened her eyes in fear until I told her the cold plain truth
Then she understood that I got some serious toe pain blues

The slightest movement was pure pain galore
Then she said I've never driven a truck or on a 4-wheel road before
She packed the tent and loaded up the gear
And off we went with my foot suspended in the air

If you want to camp out -- you just can't get gout -- toe pain
Don't forget this fact -- I have to drive you back -- toe pain
she don't lie, she don't lie, she don't lie -- toe pain

Now I've tried cherry juice
Poured myself a nightly glass
It don't cure the toe pain blues
It just gives me wicked gas
Vitamin C, alfalfa, calcium -- I've tried them all
Now I can't eat meat, now I can't drink alcohol
And being sober -- just don't seem to help the main issue
'Cuz there's just no gettin' over -- these toe pain blues
