Lyrics

Mama's Got The Blues - Bessie Smith (贝西·史密斯)/Bertha Lee

Some people say that the weary blues ain't bad

 

Some people say the weary blues ain't bad

 

But it's the worst old feeling that I've ever had

 

Woke up this morning with the jinx around my bed

 

I woke up this morning with the jinx around my bed

 

I didn't have no daddy to hold my aching head

 

Brown skin's deceitful but a yellow man is worse

 

Brown skin's deceitful but a yellow man is worse

 

I'm gonna get myself a black man and play safety first

 

I got a man in Atlanta two in Alabama three in Chattanooga

Four in Cincinnati five in Mississippi six in Memphis Tennessee

 

If you don't like my peaches please let my orchard be
