The Devil’s Music – Devil’s Got The Blues (Lonnie Johnson)

 

Lyrics

Good mornin’ blues, where have you been so long?
Good mornin’ blues, where have you been so long?
I just stopped by to leave you enough of worries to last you while I’m gone

My brains is cloudy, my soul is upside down
My brains is cloudy, my soul is upside down
When I get that lowdown feelin’, I know the blues must be somewhere close aroun’

The blues is like a Devil, it comes on you like a spell
The blues is like the Devil, comes on you just like a spell
Blues ‘ll leave your heart full of trouble and your po’ mind full of Hell

Some people say there’s no blues, but that story ‘s old and stale
Some people say there’s no blues, but that story ‘s old and stale
The blues will drive you to drink and murder, and spend the rest of your life in jail

The blues and the Devil is your closest friends
Blues and the Devil is your two closest friends
The blues will leave you with murder in your mind, that’s when the Devil out of Hell steps in
