I woke up this mornin' with these certified blues,
they sure been stalkin' me 'round.
So down tonight I couldn't tie my shoes.
They about to drop me in the ground.

If I could shake loose I would feel so fine.
There's one thing for sure and it's on my mind.
These certified blues are gonna take their time.

I've been livin' here, way down South,
a place that I wanna stay.
Been workin' hard just to feed my mouth.
Just can keep them blues away.
