BESSIE SMITH lyrics - Any Woman's Blues

BESSIE SMITH
"Any Woman's Blues"
(Lovie Austin)

My man ain't acting right, he stays out late at night
And still he says he loves no one but me
But if I find that gal, that tries to steal my pal
I'll get her told, just you wait and see
I feel blue, I don't know what to do
Every woman in my fix is bound to feel blue too, 'cause

I love my man better than I love myself
Lord, I love my man better than I love myself
And if he don't have me, he won't have nobody else

My man's got teeth like a lighthouse on the sea
My man's got teeth like a lighthouse on the sea
And ev'rytime he smiles he throws them lights on me

His voice sounds like chimes, I mean the organ kind
His voice sounds like chimes, I mean the organ kind
And ev'rytime he speaks his music ease my troubling mind
