Gulf Coast Blues (Rec. February 16, 1923)

Bessie Smith

I've been blue all day, my man's gone away
He has left his mama cold for another gal I'm told
I tried to treat him kind, I thought he would be mine
That man I hate to lose, that's why mama's got the blues

The man I love he has done left this town
The man I love he has done left this town
And if it keeps on snowing, I will be Gulf Coast bound

The mail man passed but he didn't leave no news
The mail man passed but he didn't leave no news
I'll tell the world he left me with those Gulf Coast blues

Some of you men sure do make me tired
Some of you men sure do make me tired
You've got a mouthful of "gimme", a handful of "much oblige"
