Mose John Allison, Jr. (born November 11, 1927) is an American jazz blues pianist and singer. more »

Ain't got the change of a nickel
Ain't got no bounce in my shoes
Ain't go no fancy to tickle

I ain't got nothing but the blues
Ain't got no coffee that's perking
Ain't got no winnings to lose

Ain't got a dream that is working
I ain't got nothing but the blues
When trumpets flare up

I keep my hair up
I just can't make it come down
Believe me peppie,
I can't get happy

Since my ever loving baby left town
Ain't got no rest in my slumbers
Ain't got no feelings to bruise
Ain't got no telephone numbers
I ain't got nothing but the blues
