[Chorus]
Good mornin' blues, blues
How do ya do?
Good mornin' blues, blues
How do ya do?
Well, I'm doing all right this morning
How are you?

I woke up this morning
Couldn't get outta my bed
Oh, I woke up this mornin'
Couldn't get you outta my bed
Went to eat my breakfast and
The blues was all in my bread

[Chorus]

Well, the blues ain't nothing but a poor working man feeling down
Lord, the blues ain't nothing but a poor working man feeling down
That's about the meagerest feeling I done ever had

[Chorus]

Sent for you yesterday
Here you come walking today (hey)
I sent for you yesterday
Here you come walking today
Yeah, your mouth's wide open
You don't know what to say

(I say)
Good morning blues, blues
How do you do? (yo yeah)
Well, good morning blues, blues
How do you do? (oh yeah)
Well, I'm doin' all right, blues
How are you?
Yeah
