BESSIE SMITH lyrics - Nobody's Blues But Mine

BESSIE SMITH
"Nobody's Blues But Mine"

Daddy, daddy, where did you stay last night?
Daddy, daddy, where did you stay last night?
Don't you realise you ain't treatin' me right?

Bad that I'm feelin' and I may feel sad
'Tain't nobody's blues but mine!
When I was with you, I never was glad
'Tain't nobody's blues but mine!

When sadness overtakes me and old time favourite views
I wake up in the mornin' with them heart-sickenin' blues
If I play the game and I lose this time
'Tain't nobody's blues but mine!

Nobody's Blues But Mine (1972)
