I hear a drum in a jive joint beating out the blues
My heart keeps aching, baby, aching for you
Blues blues blues keep a-calling to me
While the drums keep a-beating
My baby keeps cheating on me

At a table in the corner my woman's got a man
Laughing and talking got a drink in each hand
Blues blues blues keep a-calling to me
He's looking mighty happy
He's gone and stole my baby from me
From me

I keep walking
Blues
Blues keep talking
Blues

Blues blues blues keep a-calling to me
Until my baby comes a-calling
The blues keep calling to me
While the rain keeps falling
Blues keep calling to me
