The Rescue Blues

Lyrics: Ryan Adams
Music: Ryan Adams

A Ryan Adams song sung by Joan Osborne with Phil Lesh and Friends in 2005.

Everybody wants you to be special
Everybody wants you to be high
They throw you down a rope when you're in trouble, baby
Screaming, save me
Then they charge you with the rescue blues
Oh, oh, the rescue blues

Everybody wants to see you suffer
They know that you need the pain so much
They throw you up a rope when you're too high to cruise, baby
Lord, you lose lady
Then they charge you with the rescue blues
Oh, oh, the rescue blues

Everybody wants to see you fall
That's why they always love to get you high
And everybody knows you need the pain so much, lady
Well, keep in touch, baby
Just don't charge me with your rescue blues
Oh, oh, the rescue blues

Everybody wants you to be special
Everybody wants you to be high
They throw you down a rope when you're in trouble, baby
Screaming, save me
Then they charge you with the rescue blues
Oh, oh, the rescue blues

Said they charge you with the rescue blues
Oh they charge you with the rescue blues
They charge you with the rescue blues
They charge you with the rescue blues
