2000 Blues (ZZ Top)

A hundred thousand dollars Wouldn't touch the price I paid Of the hundred thousand moments Of the times I wish I'd stayed. But even if I had all the time and money, It's still the same old news. Nothin' does you any good When you got 2000 blues. Ten thousand clouds On a rainy rainy day Couldn't wash away All the dust and the haze. But I tried and I tried To search for all the clues, Why I can't wash away These 2000 blues. If I had an airplane With a co-pilot too, I'd fly to a planet That was closest to you. I'd set the tracking system With your safety fuse, And set the countdown For 2000 blues.
