     E
Yeh, yeh


[Verse 1]

B                               B7
Well . . . got up this morning, feeling 'round for my shoes
B7               E
Know about that, I got the walkin' blues
E                                   B
I said I got up this morning, I was feeling 'round for my shoes
B
I said you know about that now, I got the walkin' blues

[Verse 2]

B
The blues ain't nothing but a lowdown shaking chill
                     B7
If you ain't had 'em I hope you never will
E                              B
Oh, the blues is a lowdown old aching chill
       B7                     B
If you ain't had 'em boys, I- I hope you never will

[Verse 3]

B
When you get worried drop me a line
B
If I don't go crazy, honey, I'm going to lose my mind
E                                                  B
When you get worried I said sit down and drop me a line
                     E          B
If I don't go crazy, honey, I'm going to lose my mind

[Verse 4]

B
Your hair ain't curly, your doggone eyes ain't blue
B
If you don't want me what the world I- I want with you?
         E                                           B
Oh, your hair ain't curly and your doggone eyes ain't blue
B
I said now if you don't want me, babe, what the wide world I want with you?

[Verse 5]

B                                           Bm
Don't a man feel bad the Good Lord's sun go down?
Bm                                B
He don't have nobody to throw his arms around
E                                                        B
Can't a man feel bad, I said when the Good Lord's sun go down?
B
I said he don't have a soul, not to throw his arms around

[Verse 6]

B
Looky here baby, what you want me to do?
B
I've done all I could just to get a-along with you
E                                             B
Looky here honey, what do you want poor me to do?
F#7                                                        B
I say I've done all I could, honey, just to get along with you

[Verse 7]

B7
You know I love my baby like the cow love to chew her cud
B7
I'm layin' round here though I ain't doin' no good
E
Ooh, I love you honey like the cow love to chew her cud

[Instrumental]

[Verse 7.]

F#         B
I'm layin' round here, baby, but I- I sure ain't doin' no good

[Verse 8]

B
You know the minutes seem like hours, the hours seem like days
B
Seem like my baby don't stop her lowdown ways
E                                                                 B
Oh, the minutes seem like hours, I said the hours, they seem like days
B
You know it seems like my bride never stop her old lowdown ways

[Verse 9]

B
I'm going to the gypsy now to have my fortune told
B                                       E
I believe somebody is stealing my jelly roll
E                                                      B
I'm going to the gypsy, I believe I'll have my fortune told
B
'Cos I believe somebody is trying to steal my jelly roll

[Verse 10]

B
I got up this morning, feeling sick and bad
B
Thinking 'bout the good times that I once have had
       E                                            B
I said soon this morning, I was feeling so sick and bad
F#             B
You know I was thinking 'bout the good times now that I- I once have had

B
The sun is going down behind that old western hill
     E
Yes, yes

Ooh, behind that old western hill
F#                              D           B
And I wouldn't do nothing boys, not against my woman's will

[Verse 12]

B
You know I'm going away, I'll stay a great long time
B                                              E
I ain't coming back here until you change your mind
E                                                     B
