But Tuesday’s just as bad
I feel so bad ....
Born under a bad sign...I been down since I began to crawl

Now that's my wife and my stove wood too
Just mind your own business

I ain't drunk

I’m a king bee, I can buzz all night long.
But I buzz better baby, when your man is gone.

"How Blue Can You Get" (alternatively "Downhearted") is a blues song first recorded by Johnny Moore's Three Blazers in 1949. It is a slow twelve-bar blues that jazz critic Leonard Feather and his wife, Jane Feather, are credited with writing. The song has been recorded by several blues and other artists. In 1964, it was a hit for B.B. King and became a staple of his live shows.

'You didn't say you didn't love me,
while you were stretched out across my bed,
drinking moonshine whisky and talking all out of your head'
Well I see you got your brand new leopard skin pill box hat
Yes I see you got your brand new leopard skin pill box hat
Well you must tell me baby
How your head feels under something like that
Under your brand new leopard skin pill box hat
I'm too lazy to go out travelin
Too mean to stay at home
But when I been out drinkin
Papa you best leave me alone
Not standard 12-bar blues, but great couplet.
"Sometimes I lives in the country, sometimes I lives in town
Sometimes I have a great notion to jump into the river and drown"
