Trixie Blues

    (Smith)

Transcribed from vocals by Anna Jones accompanied by Fats Waller, recorded 7/1923.
From Fats Waller 1922-1926; The Chronogical Classics, 664.

Woke up this morning,
Blues all around my bed;
Woke up this morning,
Blues all around my bed;
I didn't have my daddy to hold my achin' head.

Now, the blues ain't nothin;
But a woman wants to see her man.
I know the blues ain't nothin',
But a woman wants to see her man.
'Cause everytime my man leaves me, Lord knows I feel so bad.

You can never tell
What's on a brown-skinned man's mind;
You can never tell
What's a brown-skinned man's mind;
He'll be hugging and kissing you, and quitting you all the time.
