Lady Luck Blues (Rec. June 14, 1923)

Bessie Smith

Bad luck has come to stay
Trouble never end
My man has gone away
With a girl I thought was my friend

I'm worried down with care
Lordy, can't you hear my prayer?

Lady luck, lady luck
Won't you please smile down on me?
There's the time, friend of mine
I need your sympathy

I've got a horseshoe on my door
I've knocked on wood till my hands are sore
Since my man's done turned me loose
I've got those lady luck blues, I mean
I've got those lady luck blues

Lady luck, lady luck
Won't you please smile down on me?
There's the time, friend of mine
I need your sympathy

I've got his picture turned upside down
I've sprinkled goofer dust all around
Since my man is gone, I'm all confused
I've got those lady luck blues, find my good man
I've got those lady luck blues
