I'm Gonna Bid My Blues Goodbye
performed by:
Hank Snow

I've got the blues, them mean old worries on my mind, I'm feeling sad
I've got the blues, lost the truest pal I've ever had
Can't figure why, I only know I'm all alone and feeling bad

( instrumental )

Don't understand she left me here alone and didn't tell me why
Another man must have won her lovin' on the sly
But I'll be fair, I'll catch a shootin' star and bid my blues goodbye

A rainy day is always followed by the sun up in the sky
So when you're down you'll find the silver lining if you try
But if you can't find it then catch a shootin' star and bid your blues goodbye

( instrumental )

I'm gonna ride the milky way out where the moon is hangin' low
I'm gonna leave my cares and worries with the world be low
I'm head in' where I'll never see my lovin' baby's face no more

I'm Gonna Bid My Blues Goodbye

Elvis Presley

Did you ever hear old Hank Snow do a song called Im Gonna Bid My Blues Goodbye?

I'm, I got the blues
There'll be no worries on my mind
Of feeling sad

Remember that?

I got the blues
Lost the truest pal I ever had
Can't figure why
I only know I'm all alone feelin' bad

Thats why I hate to get started on these jam sessions. Im always the last one to leave man. Always.
