Oh, those blues sure have got me,
They've got me down,
Trouble and worry just follows me around,
Horseshoes and wishbones,
Oh, why they don't mean a darn,
Hard luck's my partner,
We travel arm in arm.
Gonna leave this town, though;
Try to get another start,
Tryin' to find a girl who loves me,
And won't break my heart,
But where will I find her?
Just can't be found.
Oh, the blues sure got me,
And I'm cemetary bound.
