Bessie Smith – Rocking Chair Blues lyrics

Did you ever wake up with sorrow all on your mind?
Did you ever wake up with sorrow all on your mind?
He plays the blues to his congregation, hear his trombone whine

He'll make you love, he'll make you cry, he'll sit right down and moan
He'll weep and moan till I hear him say
Lord I wonder where my loving man is gone

Easy rider, you see I'm going away,
I won't be back until you change your ways

I won't be back until you change your ways

I'm going to the river carryin' a brand new rockin' chair
I'm going to the river carryin' a brand new rockin' chair
I'm gonna ask Mister Tadpole to move all his stuff from here

Blues jumped a rabbit, run him for a solid mile
Blues jumped a rabbit, run him for a solid mile
The rabbit turned over and he cried like a natural
