I went upstairs to pack my leavin' trunk 
I ain't see no blues, whiskey made me sloppy drunk 
I ain't never seen no whiskey, the blues made me sloppy drunk 
I'm going back to Memphis babe, where I'll have much better luck 

Look out Mama you know you asked me to be your King 
She said you kiddin' man, if you want it, keep it hid 
But please don't let my husband, my main man catch you here 
Please don't let my main man, my husband catch you here 
The blues are mushed up into three different ways 
One said go the other two said stay 
I woke up this mornin' with the blues three different ways 
You know one say go "Baby I want to hang up", the other two said stay 

Wake up mama I got something to tell you 
You know I'm a man who love to sing the blues 
Now you got to wake up baby, mama now, I got something; I got something to tell you 
Well you know I'm the man, oh yes and I love to sing the blues 
Come on baby, Come on 

I went upstairs to pack my leavin' trunk, you know 
I ain't see no blues or whiskey made me sloppy drunk 
I ain't never seen no whiskey, the blues made me sloppy drunk 
I go home baby and I lay down on the lawn
