Downhearted Blues

AUSTIN, LOVIE/HUNTER, ALBERTA

Open G

Got up this mornin’
, feelin’ sick and bad

I’m thinkin’ ’bout the good time,
 that I once have had

I said I got up this mornin’
, and I said, I’m feelin’ so sick and bad

Yeah, I’m just thinkin’ ’bout the good times children,
 that I, I once have had

Did you ever love, 
when they didn’t love you?

You know there wasn’t satisfaction,
 didn’t care what in the world you do

I said you ever love,
 I said when they did not love you?

Yeah, didn’t look like there’d be satisfaction, 
didn’t care what in this old world you do

I tell her come here little girl,
 why don’t you sit down on my knee?

I just wanna tell you how,
 you have been treatin’ me

I said, run here little girl
, I said sit right down here on my knee

You know, I just wanna tell you,
 just how you’ve been treatin’ me

You know that’s a shame, 
ole dirty shame

I’m so sorry the day, honey 
I ever knowed your name

I said, you know that’s a shame
 I said, it’s a low down, ole dirty shame

Oh, the way you been treatin’ me, 
Is a low down, ole dirty shame

You know, love, love is a worried
 old heart disease

Look like the very one you be lovin’, 
Is so hard to please

I said love
, I said, is a worried old heart disease

Look like the very one you be lovin’, 
is so confound hard to please

You know I go into my room
, I sat down and cried

I didn’t have no blues,
 but I wasn’t satisfied

Yes, I went in my room
, and I said and I sat down and I cried

Yes, I didn’t have no blues,
 but I just wasn’t satisfied

You know did you ever get up in the mornin’
, with the blues three different ways?

You had two mind to leave here
, and you didn’t have but one such stay

Did you ever get up in the mornin’
, with the blues three different ways?

You know you had two mind to leave here, but you didn’t have but one such stay
