"Confessin' The Blues" lyrics - LITTLE WALTER

"Confessin' The Blues"

Yeah, here I stand before you with my heart in my hand
I want you to great it, baby, hopin' that you'll understand
I said, baby, honey please, don't dog me around
Because I'd rather love you woman
Honey, than anyone else I know in town

Because you're so nice and lovely
And you have such pleasant ways
If you take to your heart
I'll be there the rest of my days

I said, baby, that's the truth
Honey, I declare I wouldn't lie
Because I gotta love you, baby
If I don't, I swear, I hope I die

Oh baby, don't you want a man like me?
Can you hear me woman? Don't you want a man like me?
You gotta think, you gotta think about our future, baby
And you forget about your used to be

Well, my days are long and dreary
And the sun refuse to shine
I will never be blue and lonely
Only if I knew where you are
I got the blues, baby

You can make everything alright
Can I see you today, baby
Or will it have to be tomorrow night?

Yes, this is still my confession, baby
And I'm thrilled by all your charms
It seems that I'm in heaven
When I hold you in my arms

Baby, woman, you can have me for yourself
You know I was meant for you, baby
And I don't want nobody else, no I don't

Hey, you told me that you love me
Woman, you meant it from the start
You said that we would be together
Until death do us part

But you lied to me, baby
Yes, and you called it on the phone
Now how can I be happy woman
With all the wrong you done

When you know just where I stand
I don't wanna lose you woman
Wanna keep you if I can

But baby, baby, you know I never had a friend
You're my one and only woman
You're all I have that stays
Now let me come in here
