Down Home Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I never felt
So lonesome before;
My friend has quit me;
Verse 2
He's gone for sure;
He broke my heart,
For I loved him true;
So now I'm worried,
Verse 3
Lonesome and blue.
I've got the blues on my mind,
And I just feel like crying all the time.
Woke up this morning, the day was dawning,
Verse 4
And I was feeling all sad and blue,
I had nobody to tell my troubles to;
I felt so worried,
I didn't know what to do.
Verse 5
But there's no use in grievin', because I'm leavin',
I'm broken-hearted and Dixie-bound;
I been mistreated, ain't got no time to lose.
My train is leaving,
Verse 6
And I got the down-home blues.
Woke up this morning, the day was dawning,
And I was feeling all sad and blue,
Lord, I had nobody to tell my troubles to;
Verse 7
I felt so worried,
I didn't know what to do.
But there's no use in grievin', because I'm leavin',
I'm broken-hearted and Dixie-bound;
Verse 8
Lord, I been mistreated, ain't got no time to lose.
My train is leaving,
And I got the down-home blues.
