That's Why I'm Blue
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Blue blue feeling so blue
What makes you treat me the way you do
When you know I love you so
I'm simply wild about you

Girls all around me by the score
I guess I could claim a dozen or more
But I want nobody but you

That's why I'm grieving cause you turned me down
That's why I'm leaving my old home town
That's why I'm feeling so blue

Well I'm sad sad lonesome and sad
No one but you dear can make me glad
Then tell me why won't you try
To keep me from feeling so bad

Girls all around me by the score
I guess I could claim a dozen or more
But I want nobody but you

That's why I'm grieving cause you turned me down
That's why I'm leaving my old home town
That's why I'm feeling so blue

I still have my old scratched 78 rpm of Jimmie, singing Hobo Bills Last Ride. This song is on the flip side. great to find it hanging out here on Youtube. Thanks for the posting. Long Live the Blue Yodeler.
