B.B. King – Blues Before Sunrise lyrics

I have the blues before sunrise
With tears standin’ in my eyes
I have the blues before sunrise
Tears standin’ in my eyes
It’s such a miserable feelin’
A feelin’ I do despise

Seems like everybody
Everybody’s down on me
Seems like everybody
Everybody’s down on me
I am gonna cast my problems
Down in the deep blue sea

Oh, today’s been such a long lonesome day
Today’s been, day’s been
Such a long lonesome day
I’ve been just sittin’ here thinkin’
With my mind a million miles away

The blue starts rollin'
And they stopped in the front of my door
Blues are rollin'
And they stopped at my front door
I’m gonna change my way of livin’
And I ain’t gonna worry no more, no more
