Mississippi Delta City Blues (First Recorded Version, With Scratch ...) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've got a smile
That I put on
When I'm not at home
When I'm not alone
Verse 2
But it is so hard
To make that smile
'Cause I know I'll be at home
And alone in a while
Verse 3
And if I look in a mirror
I see my eyes start to tear
I can't help but cry
Since you said goodbye
Verse 4
I've got to hide
What I'm feelin' inside
Can't let them see
How you're hurtin' me
Verse 5
So I guess that's what I'll do
Won't let them see through
Won't let them know
That you could hurt me so
Verse 6
I've got a laugh
That I put on
When I'm not at home
When I'm not alone
Verse 7
But it is so hard
To fake that laugh
When my insides are cryin'
And my heart's torn in half
Verse 8
And all the music I hear
And things I valued so dear
Make me feel so blue
They all remind me of you
Verse 9
(Now) What can I do
(Now) That our love is through
And my purpose is gone
Still I got to live on
Verse 10
I guess that's what I'll do
I won't let them see through
I won't let them know
That you could hurt me so
