Papa Genes Blues - Lyrics by Monkees


By michael nesmith

No heartaches felt no longer lonely
Heights of waiting finally won me
Happiness that's all rolled up in you

And now with you as inspriation
I look toward a destination
Sunny bright that once before was blue

I have no more than i did before
But now i've got all that i need
For i love you and i know you love me

So take my hand i'll start my journey
Free from all the helpless worry
That besets a man when he's alone

For strength is mine when we're together
And with you i know i'll never
Have to pass the high road for the low

I have no more than i did before
But now i've got all that i need
'cause i love you and i know you love me
Yes, i love you and i... know... you....love....me!!!!!!!!
