Good Day For The Blues
Ruth Brown Lyrics


I got up early this morning
so I could walk the floor
I've got to hit the streets
Cause there's a wolf outside my door
the bill collector's calling
and my kids need better shoes
gonna go to church on sunday
cause I got nothing left to loose
and it´s a good day
it´s a real good day for the blues
It's raining cats and dogs outside
and I'm looking for a job
the man I worked for laid me off
lord and I worked for him real hard
but I won't let my kids go hungry
no matter what I have to do
and it´s a good day,
it´s a real good day for the blues
things are getting better
the check is in the mail
I just threw my last dye in the wishing well
and it´s a good day,
a real good day for the blues

I got a up early this morning
so I could walk the floor
I've got to hit the streets
cause there is a wolf outside my door
gonna go to church on sunday
lord I got nothing to loose
and it´s a good day
it´s a real good day for the blues
