Man Stealer Blues

This song is by Lucille Bogan and appears on the compilation album Complete Recorded Works, Volume 3 (1994) and on the compilation album Shave 'em Dry: The Best of Lucille Bogan (2004).

I went to bed last night, and the blues wouldn't let me rest
I went to bed last night, and the blues wouldn't let me rest
Because I ain't been used, to sleeping by myself

Oh blues oh blues, blues don't you see
Oh blues oh blues, blues don't you see
You are carrying me down, blues you trying kill poor me

Now blues and trouble, go walk hand in hand
Now blues and trouble, go walk hand in hand
I never had these blues, until my best friend loved my man

She may have loved him one time, but that one man she can't hold
She may have loved him one time, but that one man she can't hold
'Cause it's done been tested, that I cook the best jellyroll

He puts his arms around me, like the ring around the good Lord's sun
He puts his arms around me, like the ring around the good Lord's sun
Said he ain't had no woman to love him, Lord like I done
