He was born in Mississippi 1924.
He was born in Mississippi 1924.
Left his home with no money.
He had to pay his dues,
but he knew the time was comin'
when he'd be king of the blues.
King of the blues!
Lost his heart to a woman, Lucy was her name.
Lost his heart to a woman, Lucy was her name. Yes, it was.
When he hears her sing so sweetly,
he knows he just can't lose.
When he holds her in his arms he knows that
he's the king of the blues.
He's a Hunter with a Crosscut Saw.
Born Under A Bad Sign.
