Hank Williams III performs "Lovesick Blues"

"Lovesick Blues" is a show tune written by Cliff Friend and Irving Mills. The song first appeared in the 1922 musical Oh, Ernest. It was recorded by Emmett Miller in 1928 and later by country music singer Rex Griffin. The recordings by Griffin and Miller inspired Hank Williams to perform the song during his first appearances on the Louisiana Hayride in 1948. Receiving an enthusiastic reception from the audience, Williams decided to record his own version despite initial push back from his producer Fred Rose and his band.

 

MGM Records released "Lovesick Blues" in February 1949, and it became an overnight success, quickly reaching number one on Billboard's Top C&W singles and number 24 on the Most Played in Jukeboxes list. The publication named it the top country and western record of the year, while Cashbox named it "Best Hillbilly Record of the Year".

Hank Williams - Lovesick Blues lyrics

 

Got a feeling because I'm blue 

Oh, Lord since my daddy said goodbye

I don't know what I'm going to do

All I do is sit and cry

Oh, Lord that last long day he said goodbye

Oh, Lord, I thought I would die

He'll do you, he'll do me

He's got that kinda loving

But, Lord, I love to hear him when he calls me sweet baby

What a beautiful dream

I hate to think it all over

I lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to that man, somehow

And I'm nobody's sugar-baby now

'Cause I'm lonesome

I got the lovesick blues

Now I'm in love

I'm in love with a wonderful guy

That's what's the matter with me

Well, I'm in love

I'm in love with a wonderful guy

But he don't care about me

Well, I tried and I tried to keep him satisfied

But he just wouldn't stay

But now that he is leaving

This is all I've got to say

I got a feeling cause I'm blue

Oh Lord since my daddy said goodbye

I don't know what I'm going to do

I lost my heart it seems

I've grown so used to that man, somehow

And I'm nobody's sugar-baby now

'Cause I'm lonesome

I got the lovesick blues

I've grown so used to that man, somehow

And I'm nobody's sugar-baby now

'Cause I'm lonesome

I got the lovesick blues
