(leonard feather, 1946)[a side of youngblood yb 1077, 1976]I’ve been downhearted babyEver since the first day that we metI’ve been downhearted babyEver since the first day that we metYour love ain’t nothing but the bluesWoman, how blue can ya’ get ? You’re evil when I’m with ya’And oh, you’re jealous when we’re apartGood god, you’re jealous when I’m with ya’ honeyAnd you’re evil when we’re apartYour love ain’t nothing but the bluesWoman, how blue can ya’, can ya’ get ? OhYou’re evil when I’m with ya’I bought you a brand new carYou said I want a cadillacI bought you a ten-dollar dinnerYou said thank you for the snackI let you live in my penthouseYou said that ain’t nothing but a shackI gave you seven childrenAnd now you wanna give ’em back !Oh, I’ve been downhearted babyGood god, I’ve been downhearted since we metAnd listen, your love ain’t nothing but the bluesWoman, how blue can ya’ get ? Yeah, oh
