I've got a right to sing the blues
Got a right to moan and sigh
I've got a right to sit and cry
Down along the river

A certain girl in this old town
Keeps dragging my heart around
All I see for me is misery

I've got a right to sing the blues
Got a right to moan and sigh
I've got a right to sit and cry
Down along, along the river

Soon that deep blue sea
Is gonna be calling me
Call it love, say what you choose
I've got a right to sing the blues

I've got a right, got a right
Got a right to sing the blues
Got a right to moan and sigh
Got a right to sit and cry
Down along, along the river

Soon that, that, that deep blue sea
Is gonna be calling me
Call it love, say what you choose
I've got a right to sing the blues
The blues, the blues
I know, I know I've got a right to sing the blues
