    Lyrics

    Well got up this morning, feeling 'round for my shoes
    Know about that, I got the walkin' blues
    I said I got up this morning, I was feeling 'round for my shoes
    I said you know about that now, I got the walkin' blues

    The blues ain't nothing but a lowdown shaking chill
    If you ain't had 'em I hope you never will
    Oh, the blues is a lowdown old aching chill
    If you ain't had 'em boys, I- I hope you never will

    When you get worried drop me a line
    If I don't go crazy, honey, I'm going to lose my mind
    When you get worried I said sit down and drop me a line
    If I don't go crazy, honey, I'm going to lose my mind

    Your hair ain't curly, your doggone eyes ain't blue
    If you don't want me what the world I- I want with you?
    Oh, your hair ain't curly and your doggone eyes ain't blue
    I said now if you don't want me, babe, what the wide world I want with you?

    Don't a man feel bad the Good Lord's sun go down?
    He don't have nobody to throw his arms around
    Can't a man feel bad, I said when the Good Lord's sun go down?
    I said he don't have a soul, not to throw his arms around

    Looky here baby, what you want me to do?
    I've done all I could just to get a-along with you
    Looky here honey, what do you want poor me to do?
    I say I've done all I could, honey, just to get along with you

    You know I love my baby like the cow love to chew her cud
    I'm layin' round here though I ain't doin' no good
    Ooh, I love you honey like the cow love to chew her cud
    I'm layin' round here, baby, but I- I sure ain't doin' no good

    You know the minutes seem like hours, the hours seem like days
    Seem like my baby don't stop her lowdown ways
    Oh, the minutes seem like hours, I said the hours, they seem like days
    You know it seems like my bride never stop her old lowdown ways

    I'm going to the gypsy now to have my fortune told
    I believe somebody is stealing my jelly roll
    I'm going to the gypsy, I believe I'll have my fortune told
    'cause I believe somebody is trying to steal my jelly roll

    I got up this morning, feeling sick and bad
    Thinking 'bout the good times that I once have had
    I said soon this morning, I was feeling so sick and bad
    You know I was thinking 'bout the good times now that I- I once have had

    The sun is going down behind that old western hill
    Yes, yes
    Ooh, behind that old western hill
    And I wouldn't do nothing boys, not against my woman's will

    You know I'm going away, I'll stay a great long time
    I ain't coming back here until you change your mind
    Oh, I'm going away, I believe I'll stay a great long time
    I said I ain't coming back, honey, until you change your mind
