Story

I drastically altered the lyrics and arrangement of an earlier song ("Countin' Down" © 2007, appearing in CD: Butterfly's Release) to produce this blues song.

COUNTIN' DOWN BLUES

10 9 8 7 6 5, 4-or 3-ee 2-oo-oo 1.
He's countin' down to one; been on the run.
He's been on the run. He's been on the run.

He's countin' down the months, for the one he hunts for.
Countin' down the weeks 'til he touches her cheeks.
Countin' down the days, and all the ways, 
To love her when she comes. Love her when she stays. 
Love her when she comes and when she stays.

10 9 8 7 6 5, 4-or 3-ee 2-oo-oo 1.
He's countin' down to one; been on the run.
He's been on the run. Oh yeah, been on the run.

What a dreamy vision. There was no decision.
She jumped his bones. Hurtin' heart groans.
Body aches. Nights lies awake,

Countin' ways to love her, under the covers.
Countin' ways to love her, under the covers.

He's countin' down the hours, and all the powers,
That kept her from him. Almost done him in,
Now he's hanging on, by his fingertips,
Dreamin' of her eyes. Dreamin' of her lips.
Dreamin' of her eyes and of her lips.

10 9 8 7 6 5, 4-or 3-ee 2-oo-oo 1.
He's countin' down to one, nearly done.
Countin' ways to love her when she comes.
Countin' ways to love her when she stays.

He's countin' down the minutes, to sin, it's to sin.
Countin' down seconds. Her vision now beckons.

Countin' down, countin' down, all agony. All that agony, To ecstasy!

All agony, to ecstasy!
All agony, to ecstasy!
