Low-Down Blues Lyrics

Noble Sissle - Low-Down Blues Lyrics

My heart is achin’, it’s ’bout to break in two.
My head is reelin’, and I am feelin’ blue.
I feel just like a fish without a fin,
And for the want of sleep, I’m getting thin.
If you don’t think I’m sinkin’,
Look what a hole I’m in.

I’ve got the low-down, the lowest of the low-down blues.
Seems just like my crown is sinkin’ through my shoes.
It’s not because I’m broke with all my clothes in pawn,
But since that morn I woke and found my sweetie gone,
With that mournful news, I got the lowest of the low-down blues.—

Believe me now, that fellow never told no lie
Who said you’ll never miss the water ’till the well runs dry.
The one who took my sweetie’d better leave this shore,
Or there will surely be some crepe a-hangin’ on his door.

I’ve got the low-down, the lowest of the low-down blues.
Seems just like my crown is sinkin’ through my shoes.
I lost my weight in gold and never even sighed,
But when my sweetie quit me cold, I nearly died,
With that mournful news,
I got the lowest of the low-down blues.
