Gee! but its hard to love someone

When that someone don't love you,

I'm so disgusted heartbroken too,

I've got the down hearted blues,

Once I was crazy about a man,

he mistreated me all the time

the next man I get he's got to

promise to be mine all mine.

'Cause he mistreated me and he drove me from his door,

Yes he mistreated me and he drove me from his door

But the good book says you'll reap just what you sow.

If I could only find the man

Oh! how happy I would be

To the good Lord ev'ry night I pray

Please send my man back to me,

I've almost worried myself to death,

wond'ring why he went away,

but just wait and see

he's gonna want me back some sweet day

Got the world in a jug got the stopper in my hand

Got the world in a jug got the stopper in my hand

And if you want me you must come under my command

Say I ain't never loved but the three men in my life,

Say I ain't never loved but the three men in my life,

'Twas my father, brother and the man who wrecked my life.

Oh, it may be a week and it may be a month or two,

Oh it may be a week and it may be a month or two,

All the dirt you did to me will come home to you.

Oh, I walked the floor and I wrung my hands and cried,

Yes I walked the floor and I wrung my hands and cried,

Had the down hearted blues and couldn't be satisfied
