Lyrics
I got a letter this morning,
Made me sad and blue
Said my woman's in trouble,
You know I'm in trouble too
That's why I'm so lonesome,
Lord and I stay blue all the time
Ah, but that's all right,
I will overcome some day

I couldn't do nothin',
'cause I was sad and blue
I know there's some' wrong with my baby,
And it hurts me too
That's why I'm so lonesome,
And I stay blue all the time
Yeah, but that's all right,
I will overcome some day

Nights are so lonesome,
Days are so blue
Just sittin' here rubbin' my hands baby,
Wonderin' what happened to you
That's why I'm so lonesome,
Lord and I stay blue all the time
Yeah, but that's all right,
I will overcome some day
