Boogie My Blues Away - Merrill Moore

Boogie My Blues Away

Merrill Moore

(Lee Ross, Not Originally Issued, Rec. 1955)

My wife said she was leavin'
And so she left me flat
I lost my job last evening
I guess that ended that
My pocket's sure am empty
I ain't paid my union dues
The bets ain't made
The bills ain't paid
But still I got good news

I'm gonna pull off my coat
Gonna roll up my sleeve
Do just exactly as I please
I'm gonna swing and sway, shout hurray
I'm gonna boogie woogie boogie my blues away

They took my car this mornin'
'Cause I didn't have no loot
Just walkin' to the corner
I tore my Sunday suit
I lost my watch and pocket chain
And brother that ain't all
My wife came by and blacked my eye
But still you'll hear me call

I'm gonna pull off my coat
Gonna roll up my sleeve
Do just exactly as I please
I'm gonna swing and sway, shout hurray
I'm gonna boogie woogie boogie my blues away

I'm gonna boogie
I'm gonna boogie woogie boogie my blues away
