  • I got a feelin' called the blues, oh, Lord
    Since my baby said goodbye
    Lord, I don't know what I'll do
    All I do is sit and sigh, oh, Lord

    That last long day she said goodbye
    Well Lord I thought I would cry
    She'll do me, she'll do you, she's got that kind of lovin'
    Lord, I love to hear her when she calls me sweet daddy

    Such a beautiful dream
    I hate to think it all over, I've lost my heart it seems
    I've grown so used to you somehow
    Well, I'm nobody's sugar daddy now
    And I'm lonesome, I got the lovesick blues

    Well, I'm in love, I'm in love, with a beautiful gal
    That's what's the matter with me
    Well, I'm in love, I'm in love, with a beautiful gal
    But she don't care about me

    Lord, I tried and I tried, to keep her satisfied
    But she just wouldn't stay
    So now that she is leavin'
    This is all I can say

    I got a feelin' called the blues, oh, Lord
    Since my baby said goodbye
    Lord, I don't know what I'll do
    All I do is sit and sigh, oh, Lord

    That last long day she said goodbye
    Well Lord I thought I would cry
    She'll do me, she'll do you, she's got that kind of lovin'
    Lord, I love to hear her when she calls me sweet daddy

    Such a beautiful dream
    I hate to think it all over, I've lost my heart it seems
    I've grown so used to you somehow
    Lord I'm nobody's sugar daddy now
    And I'm lonesome, I got the lovesick blues Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
