Booked me out, baby
You know I'm bound a-go
Booked me out, babe
You know I'm bound to go
And I hope to meet you
On that other life time shore

I'm blue as I can be
Blue as I can be
An I hope someday, baby
You will come to have the blues 'bout me

Ev'ry night I lay down
I can't sleep for cryin'
Ev'ry night I lay down
I can't sleep for cryin'
Thinkin' about my baby
She must gonna put me down

What can I do to change yo' mind?
Babe, what can I do to change yo' mind?
She said, 'i could learn to love you, Tommy
If you would treat me nice an kind'

Bye-bye, babe
See ya some ol' rainy day
Bye-bye, babe
See ya some ol' rainy day
I'm gonna see ya 'bout the time
Yo' best man is gone away.
