Stevie wonders why he has the blues. It’s because he lost the best woman he’s ever had to a friend of his. That means his friend, a guyfriend, stole his girlfriend. Colloquialisms aside, it’s another case of romantic heartbreak. So instead of sleeping, all this sorrowful ex can do is weep, all night, “like a weeping willow”. The music is a bit zesty for the theme, but the best parts are the way the horns go soaring through the bridge.
