Ida Cox – Misery Blues Lyrics

Early this morning : when everything was still
My daddy said he was leaving : though it’s against my
He said I’m leaving mama : and your crying won’t make me
The more you cry : the further I’m going away
A man is like a car : that you have to overhaul
Keep him three or four weeks : and you can’t get along at
I gave him everything : from a diamond on down
The next thing I give him : will be six feet of ground
