Walking Blues (Son House)

Well got up this morning, feeling 'round for my shoes Know about that, I got the walkin' blues I said I got up this morning, I was feeling 'round for my shoes I said you know about that now, I got the walkin' blues The blues ain't nothing but a lowdown shaking chill If you ain't had 'em I hope you never will Oh, the blues is a lowdown old aching chill If you ain't had 'em boys, I- I hope you never will When you get worried drop me a line If I don't go crazy, honey, I'm going to lose my mind When you get worried I said sit down and drop me a line If I don't go crazy, honey, I'm going to lose my mind Your hair ain't curly, your doggone eyes ain't blue If you don't want me what the world I- I want with you? Oh, your hair ain't curly and your doggone eyes ain't blue I said now if you don't want me, babe, what the wide world I want with you? Don't a man feel bad the Good Lord's sun go down? He don't have nobody to throw his arms around Can't a man feel bad, I said when the Good Lord's sun go down? I said he don't have a soul, not to throw his arms around Looky here baby, what you want me to do? I've done all I could just to get a-along with you Looky here honey, what do you want poor me to do? I say I've done all I could, honey, just to get along with you You know I love my baby like the cow love to chew her cud I'm layin' round here though I ain't doin' no good Ooh, I love you honey like the cow love to chew her cud I'm layin' round here, baby, but I- I sure ain't doin' no good You know the minutes seem like hours, the hours seem like days Seem like my baby don't stop her lowdown ways Oh, the minutes seem like hours, I said the hours, they seem like days You know it seems like my bride never stop her old lowdown ways I'm going to the gypsy now to have my fortune told I believe somebody is stealing my jelly roll I'm going to the gypsy, I believe I'll have my fortune told 'cause I believe somebody is trying to steal my jelly roll I got up this morning, feeling sick and bad Thinking 'bout the good times that I once have had I said soon this morning, I was feeling so sick and bad You know I was thinking 'bout the good times now that I- I once have had The sun is going down behind that old western hill Yes, yes Ooh, behind that old western hill And I wouldn't do nothing boys, not against my woman's will You know I'm going away, I'll stay a great long time I ain't coming back here until you change your mind Oh, I'm going away, I believe I'll stay a great long time I said I ain't coming back, honey, until you change your mind
