I've got the blues in spades
And it's a long lonely night
I'm sittin' on the edge of my bed
Just waitin' for a little daylight

I done burned my candle in two
From both ends on Saturday night
There ain't no excuse that's gonna' do
There ain't no way to make it right

Well I've got the blues in spades
The Queen of Hearts has passed me by
Well I've got the blues in spades mama
My little Queenie just said goodbye

If you won't come back to me baby
I'll just fold up my hand and cry

I've got the blues in spades honey
I'm black and blue all the time
All my blues are black pretty baby
You know our love was so sublime

These cards don't mean a thing to me darlin'
You can call me or raise me any time
Will you just pick up the phone little Queenie
A straight beat my deuces, and I lost my last dime

If you don't come back to me baby
I'll just fold up my hands and die
