I lost a good woman
An I grieve both night an day
I lost a good woman
An I grieve both night an day
I catch the blues for my baby
Ever since she's been gone away

I'm so unhappy
Mama, when I used to be so gay
I'm so unhappy
Baby, when I used to be so gay


I catch the blues for my baby
Ever since she been gone away

I watches the sun
When it rises
Until it fades away
I watch the sun when it rise
Until it fades away
I catch the blues for my baby
Ever since she's been gone away

'Yeah, boy'

(Piano boogie, drums, guiar)

Catch it long as I live
You will always hear me sing
Just as long as I live
Mama, you will always hear me sing
I catch the blues for my baby
Ever since she's been gone away.
