​I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Nothin' But The Blues (1994).

Ain't got the change of a nickel
Ain't got no bounce in my shoes
Ain't go no fancy to tickle
I ain't got nothing but the blues

Ain't got no coffee that's perking
Ain't got no feelings to bruise
Ain't got a dream that is working
I ain't got nothing but the blues

The band is swinging, the folks are singing
And I just can't seem to get off the ground
Believe me, Bridget, I can't get with it
Since my little baby left town

Ain't got no rest in my slumber
Ain't got no winners to lose
Lost all my telephone numbers
I ain't got nothing but the blues

The band is romping, the folks are stomping
I just can't seem to get with it
Ain't nothing to it, I just can't do it
Since my little baby left town

Ain't got no house on the hillside
Ain't got no fast car to drive
No one to love that's deserving
I ain't got nothing but the blues
