Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?
Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?
I'm doin' all right, good mornin' how are you?

I laid down last night, turning from side to side,
Oh, turning from side to side.
I was not sick, but I was just dissatisfied.

I got up this mornin', blues walkin' 'round my bed.
Oh, with blues walkin' 'round my bed.
I went to eat my breakfast, blues all in my bread.

Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?
Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?
I'm doin' all right, good mornin' how are you?

Oh a brown skin woman make a, moon-eyed man go blind.
Ah, she will make a moon-eyed man go blind.
And a chestnut woman make you take your time.

"Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?"
Good mornin' blues, blues how do you do?"
"I'm doin' all right, good mornin' how 'bout you?"
