Confessin' The Blues

Written by Walter Brown and Jay McShann

Here I stand before you baby with my heart in my hand
I want you greet it mama hopin' that you'll understand
I said baby, honey please don't dog me around
I'd rather be with you baby, than anyone else I know in town

Well, because you're so nice and lovely
And have such pleasin' ways
You take to your heart, I'll be there the rest of my days
I said baby, oh that's the truth honey
I declare I wouldn't lie
I'd rather love you baby
If I didn't, I swear I hope to die

I said baby, don't you want a man like me
Can you hear me woman
Baby, don't you want a man like me
You just think about out future, and forget about your used t be

When my days are long and dreary and the sun refuse to shine
I would never be blue and lonely woman if I knew that you were mine
I said baby, you can make everything all right
Can I see you today baby, or will it have to be tomorrow night

Yes, this is my confession baby
I'm thrilled by all your charms
It seems like I'm in heaven when I hold you in my arms
I said baby, woman you can have me for yourself
You know I was meant for you baby
And I don't want nobody else

You told me that you love me woman, you meant it from the start
You said we'd be together 'til death do us part
Yeah, but she lied to me BB, she said she caused it all in fun
Brother tell me how can I be happy, with all the wrong that women's done
