my door is always open
I wrote this song for the first woman I ever loved. It's a nice 12-bar blues number with a place in the middle for a very weepy lead. It uses the same chord pattern as "Nobody Loves You, When You're Down and Out," but the melody is different. I am proud of this one. It's been known to make people cry in their beer at 2:00 in the morning.
Ran into a friend of yours down at Eddie's Bar last night.
Nothin's changed, I'm still the same damn fool I used to be
It isn't like I love you, you KNOW that I don't care
I only called to let you know that I'm still around
I was 22 years old when I wrote that song. I still like playing it today.
