Story

Heard this song at our bluegrass circle, added a 2nd verse and recorded it. Have been told it is a Jim and Jesse tune, but have also been told that they never heard of it.

Lyrics

The Blues My Baby Gave to Me

The kind of blues that makes you wanna cry

The kind that makes you wanna lay down and die

The way you feel when she says goodbye

That's the blues that my baby gave to me.

 

The kind of blues that makes you walk the floor

When your baby says that she don’t love you any more

The way you feel when she walks out the door

That's the blues that my baby gave to me

 

 

The kind of blues that makes you wanna cry

The kind that makes you wanna lay down and die

The way you feel when she says goodbye

That's the blues that my baby gave to me.

 

The kind of Blues that causes such a fright

The kinds that makes you stir and keeps you up all night

And has you praying for the morning light

That’s the blues that my baby gave to me.

 

The kind of blues that makes you wanna cry

The kind that makes you wanna lay down and die

The way you feel when she says goodbye

That's the blues that my baby gave to me.
