Lovesick Blues  Madeleine Peyroux

Lovesick Blues by Madeleine Peyroux

I've got a l[A]ovesick [Cdim7]tale to t[G7]ell to yo[F#7]u
[B7]Though [E7]it ain't no f[A]ail of mine[E7]
It's about a[A] gal nam[Cdim7]ed sue
And a b[G7]oy named [F#7]lou
[B7]They were fightin' all the[E7] time
Sue [C#7]came home one[F#7] afternoon
And [B7]found an empty d[E7]ining room
Witho[A]ut a [Cdim7]word
A turtl[G7]edove had flo[F#7]wn
Sue[B7] began to [E7]moan
"My s[A]weetie went a[A7]way
But he [D7]didn't s[A/D7]ay where
He didn[Dm7]'t say wh[A/Dm7]en
He didn'[A7]t say why[D7]
D9 E7*
Without biddin' me goodbye
D9 E7* A Cdim E9 E7*
Oh I'm blue as I can be
( Tab from: )
I kno[A]w he loves an[A7]other one
But he [D7]didn't s[A/D7]ay who
He didn[Dm7]'t say wh[A/Dm7]en
He didn'[A7]t say wha[D7]t
D9 E7*
His momma has got
D9 E7* A Dm7 A
That took my sweetie from me
I'm like a[C#7] little lost sheep
And I can't sleep
But I keep try[F#m7]in' to forget
M[E]y travelin' [Fm]poppa, he[F#m7] left his [B7]momma all [E7]alo[Em7]ne
E7 E7*
I groan
"M[A]y sweetie wen[A7]t away
But he [D7]didn't s[A/D7]ay where
He didn[Dm7]'t say wh[A/Dm7]en
He didn'[A7]t say why[D7]
D9 E7*
I know I'll die
D9 E7* A A7* D7 Dm7 A G7 G#7 A7
Why don't he hurry on home?
