"Crazy Blues" as written by and Perry Bradford....
I can't sleep at night, I can't eat a bite,
'Cause the gal I love, she don't treat me right.
Oh, baby, you make me feel so blue,
I don't know what to do.
Sometimes I sit and sigh and then begin to cry,
'Cause the gal that I love has said her last good-bye.

There's a change in the ocean, change in the deep blue sea.
I'll tell you now, there ain't no change in me,
'Cause I'm in love with that gal -- will always be.

I can read her letters, but I sure can't read her mind.
Yes, she said she was in love with me, but she was lyin' all the time
Well, now I know my poor love was blind.

[Chorus]
Now I got the crazy blues,
Since my baby went away.
I ain't got time to lose,
I must find her today.
I'm gonna do like a madman, get some horse,
Get myself a gun and shoot myself a couple.
My love has been refused,
Now I got the crazy blues.

Went down to the railroad, put my head on the track.
Yeah, I thought about my gal, and I snatched it quickly back.
Well, she's gone, she's gone, she give me the sack.

[Chorus]

Well, the doctor's gonna do all he can,
That's what he's gonna need for the undertaker man,
'Cause my love has been refused,
Now I got the crazy blues.
