Down Home Blues
as recorded by Ethel Waters

I never felt
So lonesome before
My friend has quit me
He's gone for sure
He broke my heart
For I loved him true
So now I'm worried
Lonesome and blue
I've got the blues on my mind
And I just feel like crying all the time

Woke up this morning, the day was dawning
And I was feeling all sad and blue
I had nobody to tell my troubles to
I felt so worried
I didn't know what to do

But there's no use in grievin', because I'm leavin'
I'm broken-hearted and Dixie-bound
I been mistreated, ain't got no time to lose
My train is leaving
And I got the down-home blues

Woke up this morning, the day was dawning
And I was feeling all sad and blue
Lord, I had nobody to tell my troubles to
I felt so worried
I didn't know what to do

But there's no use in grievin', because I'm leavin'
I'm broken-hearted and Dixie-bound
Lord, I been mistreated, ain't got no time to lose
My train is leaving
And I got the down-home blues
