"Mean Ol' Lonesome Blues" as written by Jimmie Davis and Buddy Jones....
Well I woke up this morning and started into cryin'
I had a house full of children and a'wuddin none mine
I’m lonesome, sad and blue
I’m so lonesome baby with the mean o'l lonesome blues

I was workin' on the levee for a dollar and half a day
And I’m cryin' dear lord will come another pay day
I’m lonesome, sad and blue
I’m so lonesome baby with the mean o'l lonesome blues

I got a girl in Texas, I got gal in Maine
I got a gal in jail, I got one in Spain
I’m lonesome, sad and blue
I’m so lonesome baby with the mean o'l lonesome blues

Well she gets up in the morning and begins to cruise
And I’m lying flat on my back full of my booze
I’m lonesome, sad and blue
I’m so lonesome baby with the mean o'l lonesome blues

Down the street for with the mean ol' blues
Clothes all ragged, I ain’t got no shoes
I’m lonesome, sad and blue
I’m so lonesome baby with the mean o'l lonesome blues

Well I'm gone to the river gonna jump in to down
I’m tired of these women doggin' me 'round
I’m lonesome, sad and blue
I’m so lonesome baby with the mean o'l lonesome blues
