Down Hearted Blues

Alberta Hunter - Lovie Austin, 1922

Gee, but it's hard to love someone
When that someone don't love you
I'm so disgusted, heartbroken, too,
I've got those down-hearted blues
Once I was crazy ‘bout a man
He mistreated me all the time
The next man I get has got to be mine, all mine!

Cause you mistreated me and you drove me from your door
Cause you mistreated me and you drove me from your door
Like the Good Book says, you reap just what you sow

Trouble, trouble, I've had it all my days
Trouble, trouble, I've had it all my days
It seems like trouble gonna follow me to my grave

I ain't never loved but three men in my life
I ain't never loved but three men in my life
My father, my brother and the man that wrecked my life

It may be a week, it may be a month or two
It may be a week, it may be a month or two
But the day you quit me, honey, it's coming home to you

I got the world in a jug, the stopper's in my hand
I got the world in a jug, the stoppers in my hand
I'm gonna hold it till you meet some of my demands
