Moanin' The Blues
Hank Williams

When my baby moved out and the blues moved in
There wasn’t nothin’ I could do
But mosey around with my head in my hands
Oh, what I’m comin’ to?
I just keep moanin’, moanin’ the blues

I wrote a nice long letter
Sayin’: Mama, please come home
Your daddy is lo-on-some
And all I do is moan

I’ve been lovin’ that gal for so doggone long
I can’t afford to lose her now
I thought I was right but I must have been wrong
'cause my head is startin’ to bow
And now I’m moanin’, moanin’ the blues

If you want a good gal to stay around
You got to treat her nice and kind
If you do her wrong she’ll leave this town
And you’ll almost lose your mind
Then you’ll be moanin’, moanin’ the blues

Oh, baby, baby, baby,
Honey, baby, please come home
Your da of ddy, is lo-onsome
And all I do is moan

I promise you, baby, that I’ll be good
And I’ll never be bad no more
I’m sittin’ here, waitin’ for you
Right now to walk through that front door
Then I’ll stop moanin’, moanin’ the blues
