I've been down so long
Downed of worry me, oh lord
I've been down so long
Downed of worry, me oh lord
Have you ever been down
you know just how I feel
Have you ever been down
you know just how I feel

I woke up this morning,
blues around my bed, oh lord
I woke up this morning
blues around my bed, oh lord
I Went to eat my breakfast
and the blues was in my bread
I went to eat my breakfast
and the blues was in my bread

I said hey mister Haynes
don't work my man so hard, oh lord
I said hey mister Haynes
don't work my man so hard, oh lord
Says he's just a thief
who never had a job
Says he's just a thief
who never had a job

Well, I'm owned, I'm owned
I cried the whole night, oh lord
Well, I'm owned, I'm owned
I cried the whole night, oh lord
Thinking about my baby
and my happy home
Thinking about my baby
and my happy home

I said bye bye, baby
this is a rainy day, oh lord
I said bye bye, baby
this is a rainy day, oh lord
Well it may be in june
it may be the first of may
Well it may be in june
it may be the first of may
