I had a dream last night all about my gal
I had a dream last night all about my gal
You can tell by that, sweet papa ain't feelin’ so well

I'm goin' away mama, just to wear you off my mind
I'm goin' away pretty mama, just to wear you off my mind
So if I leave you in Chicago, murder's gonna be my crime

This house is lonesome, my baby left me all alone
I say, this house is lonesome, my sugar left me all alone
If your heart ain't rock, sugar it must be marble stone

(Play that thing. Sure is good. Play it like you live.)

I got the blues so bad, it hurts my feet to walk
I got the blues so bad, it hurts my feet to walk
It have settled on my brain and it hurts my tongue to talk

(Lonesome house, folks.)
