HE'S GONE BLUES Bessie Smith 1925 Bessie Smith w Fred Longshaw (piano) rec June 23rd 1925 New York I feel blue, I want someone to cheer me, Oh so blue, because my man's not near me; I'm gettin' tired of bein' alone, I want my good man to come on home! He's gone and left me, He's gone away to stay; I never had a man in my whole life To treat me this-a-way! I work hard all the dyin' day, I even let him draw my pay! He packed his grip and left on Christmas day, Oh well, I guess he's gone! Any fair minded woman got to go insane, In the past days she headed for the train! Since my man is gone, he's gone away to roam, All I can say, he's gone gone gone! He's gone and left me, He's gone away today; I never had a man in my whole life To treat me this-a-way! I work hard all the dyin' day, I even let him draw my pay! He packed his grip and left on Christmas day, Oh well, I guess he's gone, Oh well, I guess he's gone!
