Lyrics
Way down in my heart deep, the blues just make me weep
Ev'-ry eve-nin', when the sun goes down
Friends that I used to know don't even say hell-o
By my window, they leave me weepin'
I'm so melancholy, I'm just as blue and lone-some as can be
How should I be jolly, when nobody cares for me?
Just like the flowers need the sun, and crave the dew when day is done
I need someone to tell my troubles to
But it just seems, that no one wants me
That's why I've got those Melancholy Blues
Just like the flowers need the sun, and crave the dew when day is done
I need someone to tell my troubles to
But it just seems, that no one wants me
That's why I've got those Melancholy Blues
