DAVE ALVIN lyrics - Big Bill Blues

DAVE ALVIN
"Big Bill Blues"
(William Broonzy)
feat. Phil Alvin

I got up this mornin', feelin' sad and blue
I lost my baby now tell me, what I'm goin' to do
You know I'm so lonesome,
Way these blues keep doggin' me
Yeah baby but that's all right,
I will be up someday

When my baby left me, she left me broken down
She said "Goodbye Big Bill, I will see you in another town"
Now you know I'm lonesome,
Way these blues keep doggin' me
I says that's all right,
Big Bill will be up someday

Now I've got to walk by myself, and sleep by myself,
On account the one I'm lovin',
She keep on lovin' someone else
You know I'm lonesome,
Way these blues keep doggin' me
Yeah, but that's all right,
Baby I will be up someday

If I'd had listened at what my mother said,
And did what she said,
I'd been home now, sleepin' in a great big bed
'Cause I'm lonesome,
Way these blues keep doggin' me
Yeah but that's all right,
Baby I will be up someday

The men was put on earth to rule, but women are ruling too
Sometimes I wonder what a poor man gonna do
'Cause I'm lonesome,
Way these blues keep doggin' me
Yeah but that's all right,
Way these blues is doggin' me
