The first time I met the blues
People, you know I was walkin', I was walkin' down through the woods
Yes, the first time, the first time I met you, blues
Blues you know I was walkin', I was walkin' down through the woods
Yes, I've watched my house burnin' blues
Blues, you know you done me, you done me all the harm that you could

The blues got after me
People, you know they ran me from tree to tree
Yes, the blues got after me
Blues, you know you ran me, ran me from tree to tree
Yes, you should-a heard me beg ya, blues
Ah, blues, don't murder me

Yes, good mornin', blues
Blues, I wonder, I wonder what you're doin' here so soon
Yes, good mornin', good mornin', good mornin', mister blues
Blues, I wonder, I keep wonderin' what you're doin' here so soon
Yes, you know you'll be with me every mornin', blues
Every night and every noon
Oh, yeah
