My woman left me and I'm sure glad she did
My old gal left me and I'm glad she took the kids
Now I got less mouths to feed and more room to sleep in a bed

I got the good news blues, smilin' on a rainy day
Got the good news blues, done sung all my troubles away
Ain't got no achin' bones, got no bills to pay

A politician will say what you want to hear
Lord it's here one day and right out the other ear
He'll promise you whiskey and won't even give you a beer

Got the good news blues, smilin' on a rainy day
Got the good news blues, done sung all my troubles away
Ain't got no achin' bones, got no bills to pay
