EARLY IN THE MORNIN' (Louis Jordan) Dallas Bartley / Art Hickman / Louis Jordan 1947 as rec by Ella Mae Morse 1948 also rec by Louis Jordan & his Tympani Five '47 It's early in the mornin' and I can't get right, 'Cause I had a date with my baby last night; Now it's early in the morning, It's early in the morning, It's early in the mornin' And I ain't got nothin' but the blues! I went to all the places where we used to go, I even went to his house but he don't live there no nore; It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin' And I ain't got nothin' but the blues! I went to see his girlfriend but she was out, I knocked on his mother's door and she began to shout; It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin' And I ain't got nothin' but the blues! I went to Jenny Lou's to get something to eat, The waitress looked at me and said, "You sure look beat!"; It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin' And I ain't got nothin' but the blues! I had a lot o' money when I started out, For I couldn't find my baby, now my money's all run out; It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin', It's early in the mornin' And I ain't got nothin' but the blues! It's too early to have the blues! (Contributed by Peter Akers - September 2009)
