Lyrics: Bleecker & MacDougal

Bleecker & MacDougal

I was standing on the corner
Of the Bleecker and MacDougal
Wondering which way to go
I’ve got a woman down in Coconut Grove
And you know she love me so

I wanna go home
I wanna go home
Now don’t you tell me your troubles
Troubles of my own
I wanna go home

Now love all you big city woman
Love the big city blues
I’ve got a woman down in Coconut Grove
And she knows what to do

I wanna go home…

I was standing on the corner
Of the Bleecker and MacDougal
Wondering what to do
I’ve got a woman down in Coconut Grove
And you know she love me too

I wanna go home…

Blues On The Ceiling

Blues on the ceiling
Over my head
Running down the walls
Across the floor
And over my bed
Blue lights across the street
Blinkin’ off and on
It’s so lonely now she’s gone

I’ll never get out of these blues alive
I’ll never get out of this crazy blues alive

Love had been a dirty
Five letter word to me
I was into the blues over my head
Blue was all that I could see
Up to my neck in misery

I’ll never get out of these blues alive
I’ll never get out of this crazy blues alive

Blues keep on fooling
With my weary head
Cocaine couldn’t numb the pain
I’d be better off dead
Blue lights gone out at last I sleep
The bitter the blues the bitter they keep

I’ll never get out of these blues alive
I’ll never get out of this crazy blues alive

Sweet Mama

Sweet mama
Don’t be mean to me
Well sweet baby
Don’t be mean to me

I’ve been waiting for such a dog
Gone lonesome time
For somebody just like you
To change these blues of mine

Sweet mama
Don’t you turn me down
Well sweet baby
Don’t you turn me down
Hey sweet mama
Now don’t you turn me down
You know I love you
That’s why I keep hanging around
Sweet mama
Don’t you treat me mean
Go on with it

I’ve been waiting for such a dog…

Sweet mama
Don’t you treat me mean
I said sweet mama
Sweet mama
Sweet mama

A Little Bit Of Rain

If I should leave you
Try to remember the good times
Warm days filled with sunshine
And just a little bit of rain
And just a little bit of rain

And if you look back
Try to forget the bad times
Lonely blue and sad times
And just a little bit of rain
And just a little bit of rain

And if I look back
I will remember the good times
Warm days filled with sunshine
And just a little bit of rain
And just a little bit of rain

Country boy

Now I’m just a country boy
I got sand all in my shoes
You know I got stuck in the big city
Got to sing the big city blues

Yeah yeah Miss Lindy
Say baby don’t you leave home
I don’t care about them
And I don’t like it
Well they best leave us alone

Hey Miss Lindy
I said baby don’t you go
If I got to jump in the muddy Mississippi
Gonna swim to the gulf of Mexico
Say swim to Mexico
Let’s swim

See I’m just a country boy
I got sand all in my shoes
You know I got stuck in the big city
Got to sing the big city blues
City blues

Yeah Miss Lindy
Yeah yeah Miss Lindy

Other Side Of This Life

Would you like to know a secret
It’s just between you and me
I don’t know where I’m going next
I don’t know where I’m gonna be

But that’s the other side of this life
I’ve been leading
But that’s the other side of this life

Well my whole world’s in an uproar
My own world’s upside down
I don’t know where I’m going
But I’m always bumming around
And that’s another side of this life
I’ve been leading
And that’s another side of this life

Well I don’t know what I’m doing
Half of the time
I don’t know where I’ll go
I think I’ll get me a sailing boat
And sail the gulf of Mexico

And that’s another side of this life
I’ve been leading
And that’s another side of this life

Well I think I’ll go to Nashville
Down to Tennessee
The ten cent life I’ve been leading here
Gonna the beat the dead of me

But that’s the other side of this life
I’ve been leading
But that’s the other side of this life
And that’s another side of this life
Would you like to know a secret
It’s just between you and me
I don’t know where I’m going next
I don’t know where I’m gonna be

But that’s another side of this life
I’ve been leading
But that’s another side of this life

Mississippi Train

Mississippi train
Take my baby now she’s gone
Mississippi train
Take my baby now she’s gone
I cried down the tracks
Saying baby come back
Wnt running down the railroad tracks
I cried babe come back
I cried babe come back

She’s going through the bayou
The bayou where the river flows
She’s going through the bayou
The bayou where the river flows
Come on baby oh baby
Well I need you so
Woh woh baby ah baby
I need you so

I’m writing her letter
I say a letter
Special mail
I’m writing her letter
I say a letter
Special mail
Saying come home baby
Come home I love you so
Saying come home baby
Come home I need you so
Saying babe come home
Saying babe come home
Saying babe come home
Saying babe come on home

Travelin’ Shoes

You know too many people
Too many times
Keep complainin’ too much about
Their troubled minds
You know so many people
Just itching to speak
You know a very few practicing
The things that they preach

Travelin’ shoes
Travelin’ shoes
Can’t seem to lose
These weary blues
I’m gonna go get ’em
My travelin’ shoes

You know some people think
They know me quite well
While there are some folks who think
My soul’s going to hell
And they’re right
Well there’s them that do you know
There’s them that don’t
There’s a few left that will
You know there’s some that won’t now

Travelin’ shoes
Can’t seem to lose
These weary blues
I’m gonna go get ’em
My ramblin’ shoes

You know too many people
Too many times
Keep complainin’ too much about
Their troubled minds
You know so many people
Just itching to speak
You know a very few practicing
The things that they preach

Travelin’ shoes
Travelin’ shoes
Can’t seem to lose
These weary blues
I’m gonna go get ’em
My travelin’
Go get a
My ramblin’ shoes
Go get a
My travelin’ shoes

The Water Is Wide

The water is wide
And I can not cross over
Nor do I have wings to fly
Build me a boat
That could carry two
And both shall row
My love and I

There is a ship
And she sails the seas
She’s burdened deep
As deep can be
But not as deep
As the love I’m in
And I know not if
I sink or swim

But love is gentle
And love is kind
As to a jewel
When first it’s new
But love grows old
And it fades with time
And it fades away
Like morning dew

Build me a boat
That cuold carry two
And both shall row
My love and I
My love and I
My love and I

Yonder Comes The Blues

Raindrops falling on a roof of tin
Oh bad news
Roof keeps leaking the rain pours in
I guess I’m paying my dues

Look over yonder
Tell me what do you see
Yonder comes the blues
Running after me

It keeps on raining all the time
Sometimes out but mostly in
I’ve been waiting for that sun to shine
Oh since I can’t recall when

Look over yonder…

If your sweet mama treat you right
I think you better take my advise
Don’t go pussy footing late at night
I know you better think twice

You’re gonna look over your shoulder
You know I’m telling you to
Yonder comes the blues
Dressed in high heel shoes

Yonder comes the blues
Running after you

Handful Of Gimme

Your waltz in here
With a handful of gimme
A mouthful of much obliged
I go home feeling empty
From all your signifies

I’d spend the last of my last ten cents
On a nickel bag of candy
And if I had just ten more cents
I think I would take a ride
On the Staten Island ferry

You waltz in here with a handful of gimme
A mouthful of sweet lovin’ lies
I go limpin’ home feelin’ empty
Tears all in my eyes

I’d spend the last of my last ten cents
On a nickel bag of candy
And if I had just ten more cents
I think I would take a ride
On the Staten Island ferry

Your waltz in here
With a handful of gimme
A mouthful of much obliged
I go home feeling empty
From all your signifies

Gone Again

I woke up this morning
With an aching pain deep down
I say I woke this morning
With an aching pain deep down
Shiver and cold
About to go insane
Gone again
Gone again
I’d love to stick around
This old town
But you know I got to go again

I say I love you baby
But you gotta understand right now
I say I love you baby
But you gotta understand right now
When the lord made me
He made a ramblin’ man
Gone again
Gone again

Well I love you so
That’s why I want you to know
I’ll probably go again

Can’t you hear that whistle moaning
On that lonesome train right now
Can’t you hear that whistle moaning
On that lonesome train right now
Shiver and cold
About to go insane
Gone again
Gone again
Gone again
Oh gone again
