Home (Cradle of Happiness)

I never felt
So lonesome before;
My friend has quit me;
He′s gone for sure;
He broke my heart,
For I loved him true;
So now I'm worried,
Lonesome and blue.
I′ve got the blues on my mind,
And I just feel like crying all the time.

Woke up this morning, the day was dawning,
And I was feeling all sad and blue,
I had nobody to tell my troubles to;
I felt so worried,
I didn't know what to do.

But there's no use in grievin′, because I′m leavin',
I′m broken-hearted and Dixie-bound;
I been mistreated, ain't got no time to lose.
My train is leaving,
And I got the down-home blues.

Woke up this morning, the day was dawning,
And I was feeling all sad and blue,
Lord, I had nobody to tell my troubles to;
I felt so worried,
I didn′t know what to do.

But there's no use in grievin′, because I'm leavin',
I′m broken-hearted and Dixie-bound;
Lord, I been mistreated, ain′t got no time to lose.
My train is leaving,
And I got the down-home blues.
