It hurts me too
Tampa Red Lyrics


I can't be happy, mama, for being so blue
When you keep on worrying the way you do
When things go wrong, so wrong with you
It hurts me too

The man you loving, he don't want you 'round
So take me mama, let's leave this town
When things go wrong, so wrong with you
It hurts me too
If he keep on dolling you, the way you do
I may lose my head mama, and my temper too
When things go wrong, so wrong with you
It hurts me too

He wrecked your life mama, right at the start
And if you ain't careful mama, he will break your heart
When things go wrong, so wrong with you
It hurts me too

I love you baby, you know it's true
So why put up mama, with the way you do
When things go wrong, so wrong with you
It hurts me too

When things go wrong, so wrong with you
It hurts me too

You said you hurtin', you almost lost your mind
The man you love he hurt you all the time
When things go wrong, go wrong with you
It hurtin' me too
You love him more, when you should love him less
Why pick up behind him and take his mess
But when things go wrong, go wrong with you
It hurtin' me too
He loves another woman, and I love you
But you love him and stick to him like glue
When things go wrong, go wrong with…

Tampa Red wrote some of the most beautiful melodies as well as sensitive and heartfelt lyrics in blues. This one, Seminole Blues, Better Let My Gal Alone, Denver Blues. Yet he could be decently frivolous too. He seemed to be have been a quite fine guy too. He deserves way more attention than he gets.

Slim Davenport

Amen

Cody Stegemueller

He didn't write this song

Pelu Maad

Damn shame Tampa and Cliff Edwards never worked together....

P. David Hornik

A classic, one of the greatest blues numbers.

John the Resonator

Beautifully sweet delivery from one of the smoothest slide players ever. Don't know why but something about an eight bar blues just says it all for me.

RRROG

This version is my personal favorite. Raw and authentic to the core.

Love it. Many thanks for putting it up.

crad renshaw

briiliant song, he sings pretty good. Elmore James was the best version I've heard of this fantastic song.

Dennis Campbell

He sounds so upbeat and happy....the blues had a good day.
