Mighty Like the Blues

This song is by Duke Ellington and appears on the album 1938 (1994).

Oh, here's the strange sensation that's called the weep
I feel as low as the weepin' willow tree
And I believe I know what the trouble must be

Got a funny feelin' from my head down to my shoes
Don't know what to call it, but it's mighty like the blues
Want somebody's friendship and it just don't matter whose
Anyone can cheer you when you're lonesome with the blues

I was full of the joy of spring
Now I've lost my faith in everything
Can't believe he's gone

But still I'm gonna spread the news
I'm through with love forever
'Cause it's mighty like the blues
Mighty like the blues
