East Coast Blues

East Coast Blues
(Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee)

Woke up this mornin', woke up this mornin',
Blues all around my head, Lord lordy,
Woke up this mornin', blues all around my head.
Well I dreamed last night, the girl I loved was dead.

You can read my letter, you can read my letter,
You sure can't read my mind, Lord lordy,
You can read my letter, you sure can't read my mind.
Well when you see me laughin', I'm laughin' just to keep from cryin'.

The mailman passed me, the mailman passed me,
He did not leave no news, Lord lordy, ahh,
The mailman passed me, he did not leave no news.
Well I'll tell the world one thing, he left me with those East Coast Blues.

(all right the blues now)

Woke up this mornin', woke up this mornin',
Just could not keep from cryin', Lord lordy,
Woke up this mornin', just could not keep from cryin'
Well you know I'm on the east coast with the west coast on my mind.

You know I love you, you know I love you,
Been lovin' you all the time, Lord lordy,
You know I love you, been lovin' you all the time
Well I woke up on the east coast, with the west coast on my mind.
