Blues Before Sunrise
by John Lee Hooker



I have the blues before sunrise, tears standing in my eyes
I have the blues before sunrise, tears standing in my eyes
It was a miserable feeling now, babe, a feeling I do despise

I have to leave, leave you, baby, because you know you done me wrong
I have to leave you, baby, because you know you done me wrong
I'm gonna pack up and leave you, darling, and break up my happy home

I have to leave, leave you, baby--I'm gonna leave you all alone
I'm gonna leave you, baby--I'm gonna leave you all alone
I'm gonna pack up and leave you, darling, because you know you done me wrong

Well, now goodbye, goodbye, baby; I'll see you on some rainy day
Well, now goodbye, baby; I'll see you on some rainy day
You can go ahead now, little darling, 'cause I want you to have your way
