​Down Don't Bother Me

This song is by Albert King and appears on the album Born Under a Bad Sign (1967) and on the album Laundromat Blues (1984).

I've been down so long
You know, down don't bother me
I've been down so long
You know, down don't bother me
I'm gonna take all my troubles
And cast 'em in the deep, blue sea

I work hard every day
I come straight home at night
No matter how I try to please you, no good
You just won't treat me right

I've been down so long
You know, down don't bother me
I'm gonna take all o' my worries
And cast 'em in the deep, blue sea

I bought you a nice coat for Christmas
And a diamond ring
And now you've got the nerve to tell me
That my love don't mean a thing

I've been down so long
Until down don't bother me
I'm gonna take all my troubles
And cast 'em in the deep, blue sea
