Three O'Clock Blues
Well now it's three o'clock in the morning
And I can't even close my eyes
Three o'clock in the morning baby
And I can't even close my eyes
Can't find my baby
And I can't be satisfied

I've looked around me
And my baby she can't be found
I've looked all around me, people
And my baby she can't be found
You know if I don't find my baby
I'm going down to the Golden Ground
That's where the men hang out

Goodbye, everybody
I believe this is the end
Oh goodbye everybody
I believe this is the end
I want you to tell my baby
Tell her please please forgive me
Forgive me for my sinsback to top
You Upset Me Baby
Well she's thirty-six in the bust
Twenty-eight in the waist
Forty-four in the hips
She's got real crazy legs
You upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
And I'm telling you people
She's something fine that you really ought to see

Well she's not too tall
Complexion is fair
Man she knocks me out
The way she wears her hair
You upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
Like being hit by a falling tree
Woman, woman what you do to me

Well I've tried to describe her
It's hard to start
I'd better stop now
Because I've got a weak heart
Well you upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
Well like being hit by a falling tree
Woman, woman what you do to me

Well I've tried to describe her
It's hard to start
I'd better stop now
Because I've got a weak heart
You upset me baby
Yes you upset me baby
Well like being hit by a falling tree
Woman what you do to meback to top
Please Love Me
I've been in love with you baby
Honey before I learned to call your name
Yes, I was in love with you baby
Honey before I learned to call your name
Yeah, the way you treatin' me baby
Honey you gonna drive old me insane

Yeah, you know I love you
I'll do anything you tell me to
Yeah, you know I love you baby
And I'll do anything you tell me to
Well there's nothing in this world baby
Honey that I wouldn't do for you

Well if you love me baby
Honey do everything I say
Yeah, if you love me baby
Honey do everything I say
Yes, if you don't do what I tell you
You better get on your knees and pray

Well, I want you to be my girlfriend
Baby I'm gonna be your boy
Yes, be my girlfriend baby
Honey and I'm gonna be your boy
Yeah, I'm gonna buy you a Cadillac car
Just to drive me where ever you are...back to top
Blind Love
People, I was standing at my window
Tears running all down my cheeks
Yes, standing at my window
Tears running all down my cheeks
Well, I could see the woman I'm loving
Stopping everyone in the world she meets

Well, standing on the corner
Between 35th and Main
Well, standing on the corner, people
Between 35th and Main
Yeah, that's where a blind man's seen my woman
People, a dumb man called her name

He said, "Oh, I'm blind
You brought eyesight and made me see"
"Oh, I'm blind
You brought eyesight and made me see"
Yes, and the dumb man asked a question
"Woman, who may your good man be?"

Yes, I'm standing by trembling, people
People, my heart's laying in my hand
I'm standing by trembling, darling
With my heart's laying in my hand
Well, I could hear my baby say
"Lord, I ain't got no man"back to top
Every Day I Have the Blues
Everyday, everyday I have the blues
Everyday, everyday I have the blues
When you see me worried baby
Because it's you I hate to lose

Oh nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Yes nobody loves me, nobody seems to care
Speaking of bad luck and trouble
Well you know I had my share

I'm gonna pack my suitcase, move on down the line
Yes I'm gonna pack my suitcase, move on down the line
Where there ain磘 nobody worried
And there ain磘 nobody cryingback to top
Ten Long Years
Well I had a woman
She was nice, kind and loving to me in every way
Oh I had a woman
She was nice, kind and loving to me in every way
Oh she used to love me
And bring my breakfast to my bed every day

For ten long years
She was my pride and joy
Oh for ten long years
She was my pride and joy
And I used to call her my little girl
Oh she used to call me
She used to call me her little boy

Oh it's all over baby
You know I'm all alone
It's all over baby
Damn you know I'm all alone
Well the reason you hear me singing the blues baby
Yeah you know my baby's gone
She's gone she's goneback to top
Did You Ever Love a Woman
Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Well, and you knew all the time
That the woman wasn't treating you right

You fix her breakfast in the morning
Stay at home everyday
Even wash the dishes
If she has to go away
You send the children to school
Even mend their hose
Stay up all nights with the babies
Even wash their dirty clothes

Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Yes, and you knew all the time
That the woman wasn't treating you right

But when it's time to go to bed
The woman grabs you in her arms
She holds you real tight
She hugs you with all her charms
She calls you a lot of sweet names
Then she turns out the light
She sets your soul on fire
And you say, "Baby, everything is all right"

Did you ever love a woman
And you loved her with all your might
Yes, and you knew all the time
That the woman wasn't treating you rightback to top
Sweet Little Angel
I've got a sweet little angel
I love the way she spread her wings
Yes got a sweet little angel
I love the way she spread her wings
Yes, when she spreads her wings around me
I get joy, and everything

You know I asked my baby for a nickel
And she gave me a $20 bill
Oh yes, I asked my baby for a nickel
And she gave me a $20 bill
Whoah, you know I ask her to buy a little drink of liquor
And she gave me a whiskey still

Oh, if my baby should quit me
I believe I would die
Oh if my baby should quit me
Lord I do believe I would die
Yes if you don't love me little angel
Please tell me the reason whyback to top
That Ain't the Way to Do It
Hey baby, you ain't treating me right
You go off everyday and don't come home til night
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to get along

Well I'm pickin' you up and takin' you to my house
Now you're up and you're treating me like a mouse
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to get along

Well I takin' you into my house and did everything I could
You told everybody in the neighborhood
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to get along

Well if you got a little woman and she won't treat you right
Beat her three times a day and whoop her a little at night
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to do it
That ain't the way to get alongback to top
Crying Won't Help You
Oh no matter what you say baby
No matter what you do
The way you've been treating me woman
Is coming back home to you
And your crying won't help you woman
Oh, crying won't help you baby
Oh, crying won't help you woman
'Cause you've been so mean to me

Oh, you must remember baby
No matter where you go
Watch those seeds just scatter woman
Because you're gonna reap just what you sow
And your crying won't help you woman
Oh, crying won't help you now
Oh, crying won't help you baby
'Cause you been so mean to me

Oh, the way you've been treating me woman
Just can't understand
Oh, I'm gonna leave you woman
Let you do the best you can
And your crying won't help you woman
Oh, crying won't help you now
Oh, crying won't help you woman
'Cause you been so mean to me
Look out!

Oh, just before I leave you woman
Just before I shake your hand
I'm gonna get me a woman baby
Not to get your mad
And your crying won't help you woman
Oh, crying won't help you now
Oh, crying won't help you baby
'Cause you been so mean to meback to top
Bad Luck
Well, my bad luck is falling
Falling down like rain
Bad luck is falling
Falling down like rain
No matter what I do
Seems like my luck won't never change

I felt kinda lucky
My luck was running slow
The last hand I caught four aces
And the police broke down the door
I said, Lord
Lord, what can a poor boy do?
Well, ain't it bad when you can't make no money
Seems like all the bad breaks will come to you

Yeah, I got home this morning
She was looking kinda funny
She said "Don't come in, daddy
Daddy, unless you got some money"
And I said, Lord
Lord, what can a poor boy do?
Well, ain't it tough when you can't make no money
Without your woman turning her back on you

Well now, I asked my woman for some dinner
She looked at me like a fool
She said, "I'm playing checkers, daddy
And I think it's your turn to move"
I said, oh
Lord, what can a poor boy do?
Yes, it's bad when you can't make no money
And your woman turns her back on youback to top
