PETE KELLY'S BLUES Ray Heindorf (m) Sammy Cahn (l) 1955 Ella Fitzgerald rec May 3rd 1955 Hollywood also- M Matlock & R Heindorf '55 J Webb '55 Ella Fitzgerald w Frank De Vol & his Orch '64 They're a sad thing, They're a bad thing, The blues; When they threaten, Just start bettin' You'll lose. You hide yourself Behind a prayer; The blues will come And find you there. I feel the blues, They're called Pete Kelly's Blues, Bad news! There's no exit, You can't drive away the blues. If you're born with, You will die with The blues, Think what you choose! That happy dream is yours, they say, If you can pay the dues. That's why I'm stuck with, Fresh out of luck with, The blues, Pete's Blues, Pete Kelly's blues, Pete Kelly's blues. (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2009)
