INTRO SOLO

Woke up this morning, just about the break of day
Woke up this morning (guitar finishes line)
I hugged my pillow where my baby used to lay

The girl I love, give me the blues and gone
The girl I love (guitar finishes line)
The girl I love, give me the blues and gone

SOLO

Went to the river, river's running up and down
Went to the river (guitar finishes line)
Had the blues so bad, started to jump in and drown

Had the blues so bad, walked out to the barn
Had the blues so bad (guitar finishes line)
That old cow, she hooked me, with her great long horn

SOLO

Lord, she hurt my heart, mighta heard me cryin'
She hurt my heart (guitar finishes line)
(Guitar finishes verse)

Baby, baby, please don't put me down
Baby (guitar finishes line)
Please, baby, let me change your mind
