I gotta right to sing the blues
I gotta right to feel low down
I gotta right to hang around
Down around the river

A certain gal in this old town
Keeps draggin' my poor heart around
All I see, for me is misery

I gotta right to sing the blues
I gotta right to moan and sigh
I gotta right to sit and cry
Down around the river

I know the deep blue sea
Will soon be callin' me
It must be love say, what you choose

I gotta right to sing the blues

I know the deep blue sea
Will soon be callin' me
It must be love say, what you choose

I gotta right to sing the blues
