Got the blues like midnight, honey won't be long 'fore day
Got the blues like midnight, honey won't be long 'fore day
Lord I wish that tornado would blow my blues away

Instrumental

Lord, I can tell my bulldog when I hear him bark
I can tell my bulldog when I hear him bark
Lord, I can tell my baby, when I hear her in the dark.
