The days are long, I'm a-weary, I ain't sayin' a word
The days are long, I'm a-weary, I ain't sayin' a word
You left me blue as night
Blues all round my head (I sure miss you, honey.)

I thought my day was commin' man, I'm feelin' so bad
I thought my day was commin' man, I'm feelin' so bad
But things have changed somehow
I wish that I was dead (can't live no how.)

--- Instrumental Yodel ---

It seems that old man worry, just ain't treatin' me fair
It seems that old man worry, just ain't treatin' me fair
Can't even sleep at night
The blues is everywhere (gee, I'm lonesome.)

The world can keep on turnin', sun can stay in the sky
The world can keep right on a-turnin', sun can stay in the sky
Don't mean a thing to me
I'll worry till I die (I can see it commin'.)

Now if perchance your pathway leads you down to the end
Now if perchance your pathway leads you on down to the end
(Well listen, honey)
You'll find a worried man a-waitin' your return.

--- Instrumental Yodel to Fade ---
