Walking Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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?
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
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
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
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
Verse 11
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
Verse 12
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
