Blues On The Ceiling

 It's So Hard to Tell Who's Going to Love You the Best is the debut album by American folk blues musician Karen Dalton, originally released in 1969 by Capitol Records (see 1969 in music).

The album was subsequently reissued on CD by the Koch label in 1997. Extended liner notes were written by Peter Stampfel of the Holy Modal Rounders, who writes:

She was the only folk singer I ever met with an authentic 'folk' background. She came to the folk music scene under her own steam, as opposed to being 'discovered' and introduced to it by people already involved in it."

In 1999, Megaphone issued the album again, this time with new packaging, a new booklet and a DVD with archival footage.

In 2009, Light In The Attic Records, once again, reissued the album on vinyl with new packaging and liner notes.

And here are the lyrics to the song Blues On The Ceiling by Karen Dalton.

 Blues on my ceiling

Over my head

Running down the walls

Across the floor, under my bed

Blue lights across the street

Blinkin' off and on

I'm so lonely now you're gone

I'll never get out of these blues

Never get out of these blues alive

And keep on coming

Up my weary head

Even cocaine couldn't ease the pain

I'd be better off dead

Blue lights gone out so I can't sleep

The bitter the blues the better they keep

I'll never get out of these blues alive, alive

Never get out of these blues

I'll never get out of these blues

Never get out of these blues alive

On my ceiling

Over my head

Running down the walls

Across the floor, under my bed

Blue lights across the street

Blinkin' off and on, off and on

I'm so lonely now you're gone

I'll never get out of these blues

Never get out of these blues alive
