Grew up in the Mississippi delta 
In a shotgun shack 
Washboard for my pillow 
'Til the tax man took that back 
Moved out on my own 
I was just twelve years old ... top that

You think you got the blues 
Look at my life 
I've got the blues more than you do ... blues

When I was an itty-bitty baby 
I was my mama's only surviving son 
She used my head as a washrag 
I thought it was fun 
Walked uphill to school both ways 
With no legs ... top that

You think you got the blues 
Look at my life 
I've got the blues more than you do ... blues

Got so drunk I couldn't find my way home 
Had to have a blind man show me 
When I finally did get there, 
My own dog had disowned me 
A woman in a bar just looks at me and coughed and said 
"I don't even know you, but I wish you'd die off" ... top that

You think you got the blues 
Look at my life 
I've got the blues more than you do ... blues
