​I Got the Blues

This song is by Otis Rush and appears on the album Any Place I'm Going (1998).

This song is a cover of "I Got The Blues" by ​Albert King.
I got the blues 'cause my woman done left
Yeah, I got the blues 'cause my woman done left
She took all of my money, the little girl left with someone else

She wrecked my brand new car, she pawned my diamond ring
Yeah, she wrecked my brand new car and she pawned my diamond ring
She poured the salt out of the shaker, she didn't leave me with a doggone thing

You know the blues can come to you in any shape or form
It can come to you like the one that left me alone
Now I've got the blues and I'm not ashamed to say
And I been tryin' to shake them, shake them in every way

I got the blues 'cause my woman done left
She poured the salt out of the shaker
She didn't leave me with a doggone thing
