Blues in the Bottle

This song is by Lightnin' Hopkins and appears on the album Blues In My Bottle (1961).

Blues in the bottle, blues in the bottle is toppling my hand lord lordy
Blues in the bottle is toppling my hand
You know I was looking for my woman, she is out with another man

Blues in the bottle, blues in the bottle got me as I can be, doggone it
Blues in the bottle, blues as I can be
My baby left me, my heart and misery

Blues come in Texas, Blues come in Texas
Fell in here by land doggone it bad luck so lordy
Blues come in Texas, fell in here by land
You know I got the blues in the bottle but I've got to toppling my hand

Blues in the bottle, blues in the bottle
Weary as I can be, doggone my bad luck so
Blues in the bottle, blues as can be
You know I ain't got nobody now, my harsh and misery

Picked all my cotton, picked all my cotton
Pulled all my corn doggone it bad luck so
Picked all my cotton, picked all my cotton
Done pulled all my corn
I ain't got no more crop to gather, guess I better leave this old farm
