I got the blues 'cause my woman has gone
Oh, I got the blues 'cause my woman has left
She took all of my hard earned money, yeah, she left with someone else

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

Cold hearted woman!
Hmm!
Well all right!

The blues can come to you in any shape or form
It can come to you in the shape of a woman, just like the one that left me alone
Now I got the blues and I'm not ashamed to say
I been tryin' to shake them, each and every day

I got the blues 'cause my woman has left
Well she took all of my money
The little girl left with someone else

I gotta find her

I got the blues 'cause my baby has left
Whoo, I got the blues 'cause my baby has left
She took all of my heard earned money, she left me for someone else

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

Come on Lucy let's find 'are, whoo
Whoo, is hot out here on this country road

Now the blues can come to you in any shape or form
It can come to you in the shape of a woman, just like the one that left me alone
Now I got the blues and I'm not ashamed to say
Oh I been tryin' to shake them each and every day

I got the blues 'cause my woman has left
Oh, she taken all of my woman, she left me for someone else
