​Doctor's Blues

This song is by Casey Bill Weldon and appears on the compilation album Casey Bill Weldon Vol. 1 1935-1936 (1993).

And I went to the doctor, the doctor looked me in my eye
Said I went to the doctor, doctor looked my in my eye
He said a day that blues strike you is a day you'll surely die

I said "Doctor, doctor, you surely must be blind"
I said "Doctor, doctor, you surely must be blind"
You cannot see those blues hanging on the door frame of mine

I can't eat I can't sleep, I can't rest no place I go
I can't eat and I can't sleep, I can't rest no place I go
I ain't seen no peace since my gal said she didn't want poor me no more

And he wrote me a prescription, told me to mail it in the air
Said he writ me a prescription, told me to mail it in the air
And I asked Uncle Sam to find my good gal somewhere

Recorded:

March 25, 1935; Chicago, IL
