It Won't Be You

This song is by Bessie Smith and appears on the album Sings The Jazz (1996) and on the album 1927-28 (1996).

You have really broken my heart
I wished I knew before we start
I thought you'd always be true
That's why I left my home for you

But everything has turned out wrong
And you have left me all alone
Till I made up my mind
To get someone who will always be kind

No matter how cruel he may be
It won't be you
If he beats me and breaks my heart
It won't be you

He may love me and treat me kind
Love me so hard I lose my mind
I'm satisfied to know it won't be you

No matter how cruel he may be
It won't be you
If he beats me and breaks my heart
It won't be you

He may love me and treat me kind
Love me so hard I lose my mind
But I'm satisfied it won't be you
