An old blues song I've played for years - never could find out who wrote the original...


People come tell me all they know sometimes
Say you got an understanding look on your face
Sorry friend, but that just ain’t the case

Understandings not the same as living everyday
You can know too much before you finally get away
I’m sure sorry that’s the case

Got them blues, can’t be satisfied
Got them blues, can’t be satisfied
I got them blues gonna take that train and ride

I swore that once I’d never be back again
That was a long time ago, I didn’t feel no pain
Lost my job and my woman and I’m here in the driving rain

When you work outdoors you think that you might freeze
Pick strangers’ apples off of strangers’ trees
Take your mind off your troubles friend leave when you please
