The Last Town I Painted

I came in the other night
I'd been out on the town
I looked all around the house
She was not around
I finally found this note
It read "this is goodbye to you"
And that's the last town I painted
And I painted it blue

Now blue is not my favorite color
'Cause it makes me sad
But I asked for all these blues
By using too much red
I got a lot of troubles
No one to tell them to
And that's the last town I painted
And I painted it blue
