I've been blue all day
My man's gone away
He left his mama cold
For another gal, I'm told

I've tried to treat him kind
I thought he would be mine
That man I hate to lose
That's why mama's got the blues

The man that I love he has left me in this town
The man I love has gone and left me in this town
And if it keeps on snowin' I will be Gulf Coast bound

Mailman passed but he didn't leave no news
The mailman's passed but he didn't leave no news
I tell the world he left me cryin' those Gulf Coast blues

These men up north honey sure do make me tired
These men up north they surely do make me tired
They've got a mouth full of gimme, and a handful of much obliged
