These Blues

print

My baby don’t want me she don’t need me
Found herself someone new
Left me alone sittin at home
With nothin’ in the world to do

My stomach’s churnin’ my eyes are burnin’
My hair is turnin’ gray
Troubled deep can’t get no sleep
Since she went away

    These blues they’ve got me
    Tears rollin down my face
    That woman she left me
    Cryin’ all over the place

I wrote a letter to try to get her
To give me just one more try
I wrote it plain I signed my name
And I never got no reply

Now I’m sittin’ at the banks of the riverbed
Listenin’ to the crickets sing
There’s a moon above just made for love
And I can’t do a thing
