Lyrics

Even Buddhists Get the Blues

Copyright 2003
Dan Pelletier

Eb Ab7
You can seek the ancient answers among the wisdom of the sages
Eb Bb
As though the puzzle of romance had been solved down through the ages
Eb Ab Abm7
You can take comfort in religion or the philosophy you choose
Fm Bb7 Eb
But darling, even Buddhists get the blues

Muslims pray to Allah to comfort them in times of need
Catholics say novenas and ask the virgin to intercede
The ancient Greeks made offerings to their gods, Aphrodite first of course
While protestants they just tough it out, just get right back on that horse
And as for ways to deal with suffering, it’s hard to beat the Jews
But darling, even Buddhists get the blues

Ab Eb
You can hide in your zen garden, amidst the koi and the bonsai trees
Ab Bb7
Just try not to let your heart harden as you seek your inner peace
Eb Ab Abm7
Cause any heart that’s born to love is bound to love and lose
Fm Bb7 Eb
And darling, even Buddhists get the blues

Ab Eb
Even wise men old and grey, lose heart when love has gone away
Ab Eb Bb7 Eb
So take your pleasures where you may and hold on to tomorrow, it’s a better day

Have I told you of the story of, Buddha’s unrequited love
It was the stress from that lost love, no doubt that made him eat too much, and made his hair fall out
But he found that time is all that heals us, I know that may not come as news
But darling, even Buddhists, get the blues
Darling even Buddha gets the blues
But darling, even Buddhists, get the blues
