WASHING THE BLUES FROM MY SOUL David Oppenheim / Robinson as rec by Sophie Tucker 1929 World weary, burdened down With useless cares and worries; My homeland's calling me, A voice within says "Hurry!". Down through the lowlands, a-trudgin' along, With eyes up to heaven and a heart full of song, Lawdy, can't you see I'm washing the blues from my soul? I lifted my hopes to the highest And found a world friendly and true; Now right where you are you can find it, You only need the right point of view! I put off the old ways, took on the new; The clouds are divided, the light's shining through! Lawdy, can't you see I'm washing the blues from my soul? I've found out the things that are worthwhile, The bluebird has paid me a call, The grey days I've been through have taught me This life is not so bad after all! 'Cause I'm through with pretending I'm what I don't feel, I've gone back to nature where everything's real! Lawdy, can't you see I'm washing the blues from my soul?
