I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues

Ain't got the change of a nickel,

Ain't got no bounce in my shoes,

Ain't got no fancy to tickle,

I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues,

 

Ain't Got no coffee that's perkin'

Ain't got no winnings to lose,

Ain't got a dream that's workin'

I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues.

 

When troubles flare up,

I keep my hair up,

I won't let it get me down.

Believe me , honey,

no day is sunny, since my ever loving baby left town.

 

Ain't got no rest on my slumbers,

ain't got no feelings left  to bruise

Ain't got no telephone numbers

I Ain't Got Nothing But The Blues
