Country Joe McDonald – Joe's Blues lyrics
Woke up this morning,
Feelin' 'round my bed
Lookin' for my baby,
I found the blues instead.
Oh yeah, feelin' around my bed.
Oh yeah, ooh, I's feelin' 'round my bed.
Lookin' for my baby,
Great God!
I've found the blues instead.

Ain't it sad
When good love goes wrong
Ain't it lonesome
When you find yourself alone.
Ah yeah, hey-hey-hey, when love goes wrong.
Ah yeah, ooh, when love goes wrong.
Ain't it lonesome
When you find yourself all alone.

What's that sound I hear in the wind?
Sounds like my baby
She's comin' back home again.
Oh yeah, hey, whistling in the wind.
Oh yeah, ooh, whistling in the wind.
I certainly do hope
My darlin' comes back home again
Oh, yeah.
