Blues in the Night Lyrics

Blues in the Night - Anne Shelton

My mamma done told me when I was in pigtails

 

My mamma done told me Hon

 

A man's gonna sweet talk and give you the big eye

But when the sweet talking's done

 

A man is a two-face

A worrisome thing who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night

Now the rains a-fallin'

Hear the train a-callin'

My mamma done told me

Hear that lonesome whistle blowin' across the trestle

My mamma done told me

Oh clickerty clacks are echoing back the blues in the night

 

The evenin' breeze'll start the trees to cryin'

And the moon'll hide it's light when you get the blues in the night

 

Take my word

The mockingbird'll sing the saddest kind of song

 

He knows things are wrong and he's right

 

From Natchez to Mobile

From Memphis to St Joe

Wherever the four winds blow

 

I've been in some big towns and heard me some big talk

But there is one thing I know

 

A man is a two-face

A worrisome thing who'll leave you to sing the blues in the night

 

My mamma was right

 

There's blues in the night
