Ten O’Clock Blues
© 2014 Nelson Wright

I got the ten o’clock blues, it’s time to face the fact.
There ain’t nothing I do, can change the way you act.
Unless I change my way of thinking, baby I ain’t coming back.

My mind is rambling, got blues all around my head.
Jinx are creeping, in shadows ‘round my bed.
I believe I’ve been a good provider, but I think I’ve been misled.

My mama tried to warn me, your mama warned me too,
Gypsy woman on the corner told me, there was trouble coming due.
Seems like everybody saw it coming, these ten o’clock blues.

There’s chilly wind blowing, in circles ‘round the shack.
Think the rent’s overdue, but it’s hard to keep track.
The telephone ain’t ringing, no one to scratch my back.

My mama tried to warn me, and your mama warned me too,
Got a sermon, last Sunday, from a stranger, sitting in my pew.
Seems like everybody saw it coming, these ten o’clock blues.

You can forward my mail down US 63,
To that eastbound bridge, into Memphis, Tennessee.
Tell them to drop it in the river, that’s where my new address will be.
