I have the [C#] blues before sunrise, tears standing in my eyes.
I have the [F#7] blues before sunrise, tears standing in my [C#] eyes.
It was a [G#7] miserable feeling, now babe,
[F#7] A feeling I do des[C#]pise.  [B]  [Bb]  [A]  [G#]

I have to [C#] leave, leave you baby, because you know you done me wrong.
I have to [F#7] leave you baby, because you know you done me [C#] wrong.
I'm gonna [G#7] pack up and leave you darling
[F#7] And break up my happy [C#] home.  [B]  [Bb]  [A]  [G#]

I'm gonna [C#] leave you baby, I'm gonna leave you all alone.
I'm gonna [F#7] leave you baby, I'm gonna leave you all a[C#]lone.
I'm gonna [G#7] pack up and leave you darling,
[F#7] Because you know you done me [C#] wrong.  [B]  [Bb]  [A]  [G#]

Well now [C#] goodbye, goodbye baby, I'll see you on some rainy day.
Well now [F#7] goodbye baby, I'll see you on some rainy [C#] day.
You can [G#7] go ahead now little darling,
[F#7] 'Cause I want you to have your [C#] way.  [C]  [C#]
