Bessie Smith – Thinking Blues lyrics

Did you ever sit thinking with a thousand things on your mind?
Did you ever sit thinking with a thousand things on your mind?
Thinking about someone who has treated you so nice and kind
You'll get an old letter and you begin to read
You'll get an old letter and you begin to read
Got the blues so bad tell that man of mine I wanna be
Don't you hear me baby, knocking on your door?
Don't you hear me baby, knocking on your door?
Have you got the nerve to drive me from your door?
Have you got the nerve to say thay you don't want me no more?
Have you got the nerve to say thay you don't want me no more?
The good book said you got to reap what you sow
Take me back baby, try me one more time
Take me back baby, try me one more time
That's the only way I can get these thinking blues off my mind
