A Mess of Blues
Elvis Presley Lyrics


I just got your letter baby
Too bad you can't come home
I swear I'm goin' crazy
Sittin' here all alone
Since your gone
I got a mess of blues
I ain't slept a week since Sunday
I can't eat a thing all day
Every day is just blue Monday
Since you've been away
Since your gone
I got a mess of blues
Whoops there goes a teardrop
Rollin' down my face
If you cry when you're in love
It sure ain't no disgrace
I gotta get myself together
Before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch the next train goin'
And leave my blues behind
Since your gone
I got a mess of blues
Whoops there goes a teardrop
Rollin' down my face
If you cry when you're in love
It sure ain't no disgrace
I gotta get myself together
Before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch the next train goin'
And leave my blues behind
Since your gone
I got a mess of blues
Since your gone
I got a mess of blues
Since your gone
I got a mess of blues

I just got your letter, baby
Too bad you can't come home
I-I swear I'm goin' crazy
Sittin' here all alone
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues
I ain't slept a wink since Sunday
I can't eat a thing all day
Every day is just blue Monday
Since you've been away
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues
Whoops, there goes a teardrop
Rollin' down my face
If you cry when you're in love
It sure ain't no disgrace
I gotta get myself together
Before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch the next train goin'
And leave my blues behind
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues, yeah
Whoops, there goes a teardrop
Rollin' down my face
If you cry when you're in love
It sure ain't no disgrace
I gotta get myself together
Before I lose my mind
I'm gonna catch the next train goin'
And leave my blues behind
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues
Since you're gone
I got a mess of blues

Two minutes and 42 seconds of pure Elvis magic make this a little gem of song ❤️

Tom Rucco

Yes it definitely does

Chris Brimhall

Today’s singers should listen to this a learn a thing or two

Paul Herring

There was hardly a thing Elvis couldn't sing. Here he sings the blues with the best of them (see also Heartbreak Hotel) and then ballads as good as anyone. What a super talent and what a waste!

If this was released today and Eli's was unknown, the world would rock all over again. How many of today's hits could you say that about.

Sean Hinkle

Absolutely none because music now is just a big chunk of noise and nonsense

Elaine Wilson

Status Quo covered this in 1983

Yuto nihon

forever

flimbambo

Presley was one of these rare singers who could steer his voice wherever he wanted it to go - and it always sounded effortless and gorgeous

Char Shroat

Can't stay still with this one, and nobody could do it like him!
