I'M DOWN IN THE DUMPS (Wesley Wilson / Leola P. Wilson) Bessie Smith - 1933 Also recorded by: George Melly; Rory Block; Jack Teagarden; Valerie Wellington. My man's got somethin' He gives me such a thrill Ev'rytime he smiles at me I can't keep my body still I done cried so much Look like I got the mumps I can't keep from worryin' 'Cause I'm down in the dumps I had a nightmare last night When I laid down When I woke up this mornin' My sweet man couldn't be found I'm goin' down to the river Into it I'm goin' to jump Can't keep from worryin' 'Cause I'm down in the dumps Someone knocked on my door Last night when I was asleep I thought it was that sweet man o' mine Makin' his 'fore day creep Was nothin' but my landlord A great big chump Stay way from my door, Mister Landlord 'Cause I'm down in the dumps When I woke up My pillow was wet with tears Just one day from that man o' mine Seems like a thousand years But I'm gonna straighten up Straighter than Andy Gump Ain't no use of me tellin' that lie 'Cause I'm down in the dumps I'm twenty-five years old That ain't no old maid I got plenty of vim and vitality I'm sure that I can make the grade I'm always like a tiger I'm ready to jump I need a whole lots o' lovin' 'Cause I'm down in the dumps
