lyrics

I woke up this morning with an awful aching head
I woke up this morning with an awful aching head
My new man had left me just a room and an empty bed

Bought me a coffee grinder, got the best one I could find
Bought me a coffee grinder, got the best one I could find
So he could grind my coffee, 'cause he had a brand new grind

He knows how to thrill me and he thrills me night and day
Oh, he knows how to thrill me and he thrills me night and day
He's got a new way of loving, almost takes my breath away

Oh, he's got that sweet something and I told my girlfriend Lou
He's got that sweet something and I told my girlfriend Lou
But the way she's ravin', she must have gone and tried it too

When my bed get empty, make me feel awful mean and blue
When my bed get empty, make me feel awful mean and blue
My springs are getting' rusty, sleepin' single like I do

Bought him a blanket, pillow for his head at night
Bought him a blanket, pillow for his head at night
And I bought him a mattress, so he could lay just right

He came home one evening with his spirit way up high
He came home one evening with his spirit way up high
What he had to give me, made me ring my hands and cry

He boiled my first cabbage and he made it awful hot
He boiled my first cabbage and he made it awful hot
When he put in the bacon, it overflowed the pot

When you get good lovin', never go and spread the news
It'll build up to cross you, and leave you with them empty bed blues

about

Noya Sol Tel Aviv Yafo, Israel

Noya Sol brings to life the original, early 20th century women's Blues: This is the Blues that emerged as the expression of black women who, for the first time in history, found themselves free – a legal, financial and sexual freedom. And the full meaning of freedom includes also the realization that freedom does not take care of you – it only allows you to take care of yourself, as best you can. ... more
