Leon Redbone – Crazy Blues lyrics
I can't sleep at night, I can't eat a bite,
'Cause the gal I love, she don't treat me right.
Oh, baby, you make me feel so blue,
I don't know what to do.
Sometimes I sit and sigh and then begin to cry,
'Cause the gal that I love has said her last good-bye.

There's a change in the ocean, change in the deep blue sea.
I'll tell you now, there ain't no change in me,
'Cause I'm in love with that gal -- will always be.

I can read her letters, but I sure can't read her mind.
Yes, she said she was in love with me, but she was lyin' all the time
Well, now I know my poor love was blind.

Now I got the crazy blues,
Since my baby went away.
I ain't got time to lose,
I must find her today.
I'm gonna do like a madman, get some horse,
Get myself a gun and shoot myself a couple.
My love has been refused,
Now I got the crazy blues.

Went down to the railroad, put my head on the track.
Yeah, I thought about my gal, and I snatched it quickly back.
Well, she's gone, she's gone, she give me the sack.


Well, the doctor's gonna do all he can,
That's what he's gonna need for the undertaker man,
'Cause my love has been refused,
Now I got the crazy blues.
