Mornin' Blues    (John Sebastian / Traditional)

Well I woke up early with the mornin' blues
With an achin' head that I wished I'd used
Looked in the mirror, nearly died of fright
These mornin' blues is worse than ten last nights

I got the mornin' blues
Oh so bad
Honey come and hug me
They're the worst I ever had

Now a nickel's worth o'grease and dime's worth of lard
I would buy more but these times is too hard
There ain't no use for me to work this hard
Cause I can live off the chickens in my neighbors' yard

I got the mornin' blues
Oh so bad
Honey come and hug me
They're the worst I ever had

Now I been in business and I been in love
I used to fly high like a turle dove
I've had the blues many a time
But it was just some girl on this poor boy's mind

I got the mornin' blues
Oh so bad
Honey come and hug me
They're the worst I ever had
